Good morning everyone. I have another question. I have 2013 Heartland Landmark Mesa. Purchased it last Oct.
And slowly doing some mods to make it the way I want it.

Have you upgraded your 5ver with disc brakes?
Did you do the install yourself?
Which system did you choose?
Any other thoughts would be appreciated.
Thanks.

I had disc brakes added to my Cardinal. the guys from performancetrailerbraking.com came to my location and did it right in my driveway. What a day/night difference. My Cardinal Grosses 16K.

I too had Performance Trailer Braking do my upgrade.. It is NIGHT AND DAY difference in stopping.... By far one of the best mods done to date

I also had a caliper hanging up after the fact, hie crew came to my house in PA to do the repair...

**AND ** don't forget they have a referral program.... use someones name from here that had the upgrade done and get a $50.00 discount off the kit..

Referral Program
We've got a great way for you to spread the word about safer brakes, help your friends save on their purchase, and make some cash for yourself! We call it our 50/50 program. All former customers are eligible. All you need to do is refer someone to make a disc brake kit purchase and make sure they mention your name before they pay. You'll get a $50 check and your friend will get a $50 discount on his/her purchase. Note that this discount is not stackable with other discounts.

Referral Program Terms & Conditions
The following rules govern our referral program:

Referrers are only eligible to receive the referral bonus (and customers you refer to receive the discount) if they have previously ordered a disc brake kit from Performance Trailer Braking.
Referrers may refer as many customers as they'd like and they are eligible to receive the referral bonus for each new customer they refer that purchases a disc brake kit.
Each customer is only eligible to be referred once, ie. if the referred customer purchases two kits, the referrer will only receive the bonus once, and the referred customer will only receive the discount once.
The customer being referred must mention the referral program and who referred them prior to making the purchase to confirm they are eligible. Unfortunately, we will not be able to award the bonus and/or issue a discount after the purchase has been made.
The referred customer will receive a $50 discount at the time of purchase.
The referrer will be sent a $50 check 30 days after the referred customer's date of purchase. Note that it can take up to a week for the check to be delivered after it has been sent.

The difference for me was the wife screaming at me to slow down on a mountain grade to her sitting over there reading her book. Yes, agree with above, night and day difference!!

Did my conversion myself. Cobbled the best stuff together myself, no kit.
Had to buy a flare tool to custom make the brake lines.
Pretty much bolt on from there.

Ditto on my 2011 Cameo. That was Kodiak with Titan pump.

Ordered the Lifestyle with factory disc which are Dexter all the way.

Whichever brand you go with, do the Titan pump.

No debate over the consistency of the performance and power of the disc.
Go for it!

Helped my dad do the change on his HH Premier. He said I wished I had done this years ago!!!

He went with the oil bath system, NO leaks. Kodiak and I think Dexter actuator?

Two summers back had Performance Trailer Brakes install Titan Discs in our driveway. Money well spent, all done is less than 8 hours which would have taken me a couple days. Didn’t want to have the driveway occupied for more than a day.

Not only is it night and day better at stopping, but I no longer have any issues with Dexters problem of drum brakes getting soaked with grease. Now I can look under and visually inspect the seals without pulling a thing.
