Brakes. Disc, right?

I am zeroing in on a 2013 Premier 30REPR. I forgot to ask the salesperson whether or not this line of trailers has disc brakes. I assume so, but I am unable to find out from the Keystone website or the brochure. Perhaps that is because all recently manufactured travel trailers of that size have disc brakes. What say you? Thanks.

I am thinking almost all are drum brakes. I believe Airstream offers the upgrade at the factory level. I have read about people upgrading to disc. While disc may have a better heat dissipation, I don't believe they stop any better than properly adjusted, and maintained drum brakes. One draw back with the disc is when stored for long periods, and limited use, the seals may dry out and cause issues. Electric systems store much better for extended time and limited use.
