received your email re trailer and tow ball. Most rental trailers have inertial braking so electronic brake controller not needed. I'd be concerned re trailer tongue weight. Figure the trailer is probably around 2,000 lb and add 3Klb for a total of 5K then about 500lb should rest on tongue ball point. 1-1/4 " receiver may be too small and may not be rated for that without an equalizer hitch. Better go back and rent a tow vehicle that will pull the trailer, U-Haul probably has one, just don't tell them you are pulling a tractor, better a Honda CR-V or other approx 3Klb vehicle.
Don't miss your show because of this!
