Our trailer came with Dexter 5200lb brakes and we had very similar problems i.e. shoe delamination and broken hardware. I contacted Dexter and explained the situation and was surprised that they shipped me new 7000lb brakes. which I installed 2 years ago with no problems since

You really have 3 choices - Hydrastar, Titan and Dexter. I chose the Hydrastar as it is all metal while the price of the Dexter put it out of my desired sight range plus couldn't guarantee that it would work with Ford's EBC

One of these days someone will build trailers with torsion axles, disc brakes and Vault hubs.
Maybe.
