What vehicles do you have? The tow rating is important. Good brakes on the trailer are very important if you are near #2000 total weight trailer, boat, and sailing supplies, there is a legal limit here on requiring brakes for a lot of states. Maybe less on the total weight if your vehicle has a low tow weight rating. It can be a real scare (or more) if the car ahead of you hits the brakes hard and you cannot brake in the same distance.
