Here, in BC Canada, esp. In the spring, they pull over every trailer on the road & check the brakes, break aways, safety chains, you name it and your vehicle's tow rating, suspension, etc. You don't pass, you are off the road. Pain in the butt but keeps everyone safe. Lucky this year, I didn't have to unload & do all the inspection for the DOT, my trailer was less than a year old, they looked at my registration for both truck & trailer and asked me if I knew how to check my brakes. I said no, but I know how to take it to the RV place & they do, cop laughed & said, bye. We also have a new law as well, if you are towing over 10,000 lbs loaded, which is a 2 horsegoose neck with LQ's & a couple of horses, you have to have a class 3 driver's license.
