A Family Affair
Performance Trailer Braking was founded in 2013 and the Barnett Family has been operating Performance Trailer Braking since Dan Barnett purchased the company in October 2017.
Since then, the company has grown around the Barnett's, with Dan, Michael, Kelly, Zack, and others all pitching in in various roles. Even those who aren't technically family get treated like they are!
Michael Barnett, a retired military veteran of many years, and his wife Kelly Barnett are full time RVers who spend most of their time working with customers, attending rallies & shows, and keeping the warehouse stocked.
Dan Barnett, a tech veteran of the digital advertising industry, manages the finances as well as the marketing and advertising.
Since taking over, we've worked tirelessly to push PTB's standards of expertise and customer support to new limits and do our best to make sure every customer is treated like we would want to be treated.
We have a small team of honest, hard working folks who are part of the family and help keep things running smoothly for our customers.
In addition, we have teamed up with several mobile independent installers who travel around the country to do brake, axle, and suspension installations.
"Thank you all"
Just wanted to give a shout out to the installation team that works through your company, Josh and Heather Shrader. They installed my brake kit today on my 5th wheel trailer. They were Read Moreboth very professional, they both took time to explain what they were doing and invited me to ask any questions that I might have. Their work was done in a timely manner and when they were done their work area was left clean and all old parts were placed in one spot with all cardboard for easy disposal. It was a real pleasure to have met them both. And by the way, the new disc brakes are awesome! Thank you all.
"Wow, what a difference!"
Just finished having Disc Brakes installed yesterday by "Bill" the installer for Performance Brakes. Wow, what a difference! After completing yesterday we left on a 175 mile test journey Read More. Drove two lane twists, small towns, and freeway. The braking ability is much more than I expected. During my test ride with installer he had me do a hard brake situation going about 25 mph and we came to a stop in about half the distance of my old brakes. These brakes give you a lot of comfort when driving knowing I can stop quickly if needed. Interestingly, the old brakes which we took off only had about 8k miles on them and the pads were half worn and the electromagnets were badly worn on two of the wheels. Granted we do more two lane twisty road driving than freeway driving. Bill the installer was very meticulous about his work and in addition found some wires that weren't crimp right (not related to brakes) and fixed them without saying anything until he was done. I would recommend him without any hesitation for Brakes and suspension work. I will report back if there's any change after our 175 mile trip home tomorrow.

"The whole experience was exceptional"
Today John and Barbara came to our home in Virginia and installed the disk brake system. It was an exceptional installation. The equipment is very high quality. John and Barbara are a te Read Morerrific team. They showed up on time, went right to work, and displayed why their experience and expertise has made them the best. John and I took our truck and camper for a test/adjustment drive to ensure all was well and adjusted. The whole experience was exceptional.
