I have had my EZ loader trailer now for 4.5 years and the disk breaks on the trailer are quite rusty. They still work fine, but was thinking that this off season would not be a bad time to have them serviced. I am not really sure what needs to be dine, but by the looks of them when I take a wheel off, they might need some work. Are there any shops in this area that do work on them? Has anyone had any first hand experience?

Les Schwab works on trailers. I'd try one of them.
Maybe they work only on certain trailers, like small utility trailers? My nearest Les Schwab told be they don't work on boat trailers because they cannot buy the parts at wholesale. Who knows...that just what I was told.

Mine works on all kinds of trailers. Well, I guess we need to define work, and since I didn't ask what the trailers were doing there maybe they are only fixing flats or mounting tires.

Schwab does not work on them anymore. I had a long conversation in the Albany shop. I needed some quick help and they gave it to me, but it was without charge and just a big smile and sent me down the road. I went back to ask about some brake work and they would not even schedule me.

Newport Marine did our work. They were able to get the parts and fix everything.

Maybe that's a new policy since they were sold. They've worked on job and DB trailers in the past.

My EZ Loader was 6 yrs old, then the left brake locked up, while I was on I-5.
Tire blew. Had to release hydraulic oil, and pry out Caliper.
Put on spare tire, and got home.
Researched boat Trailer brakes, and replaced all the original UFP: Actuator, Calipers, and pads with much higher quality, KODIAK brand (Dexter).

Now all works well.
EZ Loader doesn't use good quality brakes.
