Honestly... I pulled 26K from La Grande to Boise without brakes. I have the EBPV Exhaust brake mod, and just ran that and downshifted. Watched my distance and payed attention. Smart, no. But I got it done! I don't even have a controller in my truck.. They're nice to have, don't get me wrong, but if you're trailer isn't set up for them you have to buy new hubs, which last time I priced them are about 150 a piece, give or take a few bucks. They're pretty easy to put on, just pull the old one, pack the new bearings and put it back together, than just run wires. One axle would be more than enough for you. If you aren't comfortable pulling with out brakes then don't, but if 5K is all you ever pull and you're comfortable honestly I wouldn't worry about it.
But it's an easy job, couple hours maybe, and really pretty cheap. Jump on ebay and find used brake hubs. Just know the spindle size of your axle.
