    Thank you dearly for all the opinions. Ill see what I can do about getting things on my truck figured out for the brakes...as for the trailer...it isnt mine so there isnt much modification I can do to it. I simply barrow it.

    BUT, I am sorta trailer shopping. Ill make sure whatever I get has brakes!

    And Im sorry if anyone miss took my comment on most people being respectful...I know it doesnt help in emergencies...I meant it more as for the norm. Most people will take the time to let you know what their doing and to give you space when your hauling in my area. I meant the comment more as a 'should I be ok to keep pulling until I can solve the brake issue?' type thing...

    Thank you for all the opinions!

    I pull my 2-horse gooseneck with a 1/2 ton GMC. It all depends on the towing capacity of your truck and the weight of your trailer. You should be able to find out the towing capacity of your truck from the owner's manual or the Ford website. Most trailers have a sticker on them with all the spec weights. I try to keep my towing weight well below the full towing capacity of the truck as a safety measure. And.......get brakes on the trailer. They are an absolute must.

    I used my '99 F-150 (2wd reg cab)to tow a bumper pull 3 horse slant. We moved to Northern California at one point from Houston, TX. I had 2 horses, hay. Tack and some furniture and my F-150 did great. I believe it was rated to tow about 9,000lbs. I later purchased an 04 F150, 4x4 extended cab. It was rated to tow 8,000lbs. It also depends on what size motor you have. The V8 came with a 4.6L or 5.4L. Mine had the 5.4
    You can probably call Ford and ask what your vehicle is rated to tow and they could tell you.
