So my car is rated to tow 2400lbs, and brakes are recommended for anything over 1,000lbs. The trailer is 1,300lbs, and about 1,600lbs when loaded with our gear. We obviously WANT to put brakes on it, but the RV dealer is saying that the axle doesn't support brakes. Replacing the axle and adding brakes looks to be a HUGE expense for less than 10 trips per year that are all within 200 miles. If we took it REALLY easy should we be ok while we save up some money? Possible to get through this season? Any recommendations for brands of axles and brakes to look at?
