What makes you think that you'll need EBD for your trailer?

So I'll entertain this thought exercise of yours for a moment and run with the hypothetical:

If your trailer has EBD (which is really just another version of glorified ABS), how would you prevent the trailer yaw rate due to EBD from being HIGHER than your the yaw rate of your lead towing pickup?

And if you have a 4000 lb pickup towing a 6000 lb boat, what's the weight transfer during braking? So how much would EBD really be able to help you? How would you coordinate the trailer EBD to the towing pickup's EBD?

Think about what you're suggesting...how would you pull it off?
