None whatsoever, providing the backplates are out of the way and no gnarly bits are going to foul the new drums.

I've got a little 16' open bass fisher, which is on an unbraked roller trailer. I removed the standard unbraked hubs and fitted braked drums instead (obviously without and backplates etc), as this allowed me to fit really wide wheels (because the braked style drum is obviously much deeper than the unbraked type), so I can happily tow across sand and shingle with no fear of sinking.

Going to whip off the wheels anyway to replace the bearings and leave the trailer on jack-stands for the winter.

Is that with or without VAT?
