I took my little trailer to Lowes today and loaded it up with some fairly light stuff, a load of cement, sand, grout, tiles, concrete backer board. Im sure it was pushing 1,000lb gross trailer weight.
That was enough to push around my firebird. I was actually even able to lock up the 11 inch wide yokohama s-drive tires which are real sticky summer only high preformance tires with the corvette front brakes.
Trailer brakes are not a bad idea.
