Expert Reply:

Since your Airstream trailer has disk brakes, you will need a hydraulic brake actuator with a higher psi rating, 1,500 or higher, because disc brakes require more pressure than drum brakes. The Titan BrakeRite, # T4813100, is designed for electric over hydraulic braking systems on trailers with disc brakes and is rated at 1,500 psi. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view.

In order to control the actuator, you will also need a brake controller that is compatible with electric over hydraulic systems. I recommend the Tekonsha P2, # 90885, because it is easy to set up and easy to use. I have included a link to the installation details for reference.

With the year, make, and model of the towing vehicle, I would be able to tell you everything you would need to install the brake controller in the vehicle.
