It can be done, but if you going to get a trailer I really suggest that you
get a tandom wheel with electric brakes. I prefer the brake system that
is tied to your tow vechile vise the surge brakes.
I used to have a single axle trailer year ago. I was towing my
MGB home (he blew the clutch - about 100 mi from home). About 1/2 way home
for no apparent reason - that I could see - it started to wipe. I was doing
60mph at the time! Getting worse and worse. When this happens you CAN'T
touch the brakes or you're history. The tow car was a 67 Olds 98 LS. I
punched it and at about 90mph finally managed to pull the trailer back
About a year later I was towing a friends VW bug in town on at 45mph road
when it started to wipe again. There was a traffic light about a 1/2 mi.
in front of me - it was green. I turned on my headlights, layed on the horn
and nailed it again. Luckily the light stayed green! This time I managed
to pull it streight at about 65mph.
No thanks - don't need another single axle no brake car trailer.
