Getting a new trailer, have some questions
I'm getting re-stationed across the country and will be buying a trailer to move some of my stuff. I'm looking at a 6x10 Interstate Pro-series trailer which I know my 2011 F250 will have no problem towing. Here are my questions:
1. Most of the 6x10's don't come with brakes, do you think I need to spend a couple hundred more bucks to put the brakes on there? (I know my truck shouldn't have much of a problem slowing down a sub-3000 lb trailer, just thinking that my truck has the trailer control system that uses the brakes to keep the trailer stable and wondering if that would help on a trailer this small.)
2. If I do have brakes installed, do I need to install a separate brake controller or does my truck handle that?
3. Also, what do you guys think about DIY paint-on bedliner (like herculiner) to install on the plywood floor to keep it nice and durable?
4. Any things I should be looking out for when buying my first trailer?
Thanks for any input you may have.
