You bet! Just make sure that you check the surge brake on the trailer. I rented one one time and did not check it. It was bone dry and corroded up, so it had NO brakes. It makes a huge difference. Uhaul is horrible about maintenence.

No. The surge brake is built into the trailer. As you apply the TB brakes the trailer pushes against hitch and applies the trailer brakes. There should be a brake fluid reservoir near where the trailer connects to the vehicle. Open it and make sure it has brake fluid and not water or empty.

Glad to help. My son and I moved his stuff in that size trailer using his '97 Astro from Orlando to Milwaukee last summer with no problems. And the Astro has about 100HP less than the TB. One more thing to check is the air in the tires of the trailer. Make sure they are all the same pressure. You won't have to constantly fight the wheel to go straight. Best bet is to fill to max or close on the way from picking it up. Then, after the trailer is packed, check again to make sure all tires have equal pressure.
