Hello all,

  Does anyone know if the Bantam civilian trailer came with a parking brake?  My Bantam is SN 3022 for reference.

Thanks,
Dave Luber

No parking brake, but if yours was a late left-over WWII trailer it probably can be retrofitted with one. My WWII trailer had one and it kept the trailer from moving when on uneven ground during connecting/disconnecting and storage. My '47 Bantam would be easier to do those tasks with a hand brake especially when loaded up with "stuff".
