Would you get brakes on the rear axle also?

I have a 16 foot utility trailer that I use to tow my trail rig with that is a 3800lbs toyota. The trailer weighs in at 1620 for a total load of 5420. My tow rig is a 3/4 05 Cummins Dodge that weighs in at 6900 lbs empty. The trailer only came with brakes on the front axle. I am well within it's GVWR which is 7000lbs. Do I need brakes on the rear axle also? How many are built with front axle brakes only, and why?

The front axle gets brakes for the same reson that the front brakes on the truck work more, wieght transfer. The rear axle will not get brakes so if you lock up the trailer brakes on a turn the rear tires will keep the trailer tracking stright otherwise it would slide around and could cause a jack knife.

Anybody know the dry weight of a Carson 12000 GVW 32' flatbed gooseneck?

Need to know the dry weight (UVW) of a Carson 32' 12,000 lb GVW flatbed gooseneck trailer for potential buyers of my trailer. Looked around the net w/ no luck and have fired off an e-mail to the manufacturer but who knows if they will ever answer back so why not go to the best... Pirate 4X4 forum readers.
Thanks !!!
