Electronic Brakes

If you’re towing more than 750kgs, you’ll need trailer brakes. Thankfully, Altapac supply and fit Hayman Reese electronic braking systems to suit every tow vehicle.

Our most popular electronic brake controller is the Hayman Reese CompactIQ. The CompactIQ proportional brake controller gives you greater control over your braking, on and off-road. The CompactIQ Electronic Brake Controller is mounted discreetly behind the dash or under the centre console. The brake controller is left out of sight and out of the way behind the vehicle’s dashboard – with only the dial and indicator visible.

ANDERSON PLUGS & TRAILER COUPLINGS

Hayman Reese towbars are designed and engineered in Australia to cater for a huge variety of vehicles for Australian conditions. With over 65 years of experience, Hayman Reese know towbars almost better than anyone else.

At Altapac, we stock the full range of Hayman Reese towbars, from their light-duty towbars perfect for smaller vehicles, through the heavy-duty towbars and their latest innovation, the X-bar recovery towbar.

TRAILER CAMERAS & MONITORS

Big trailers, caravans, horse floats and boats don’t lend themselves to good visibility to the rear of your tow. We’re able to solve this common dilemma by offering a range of trailer cameras and monitor systems to give you a clear view of the world behind and around your tow.

Our trailer cameras are designed to provide excellent visibility to the rear of your tow. However, that’s not all our trailer cameras and monitors can do. Altapac trailer cameras can also help you see inside you tow so if you’re towing something valuable like horses, you can keep an eye on them and your tow vehicle while underway.
