I didnt want to make a whole thread about this but I searched and couldnt find a definitive answer. I am planning on picking up a Honda Civic. Its approximately 100 miles away. To avoid paying for a Uhaul dolly or trailer, I want to use my friends dual axle flat bed trailer. I believe its mostly steel construction with wood planks as a floor and steel ramps. Im going guess and say it weighs 1000 lbs. The civics curb weight is around 2600 lbs. That puts the whole situation at 3600 but just to make sure Im nt under estimating, call it 3800. I do not think the trailer has electric brakes. My friend pulled it with his Chevy 1500 pickup WITHOUT a controller, so I assume no trailer brakes. However, is 3800 lbs. safe to tow with a Tacoma and no trailer brakes?
My vehicle is in my sig. Factory Tow package.
