No brakes on trailer however there are disc brakes on the front and both rear wheels of the trike. Should be fine. 30 amp hook up at campground will support a ceramic heater and 110v electric blankets. We will be ready this time. I travel with battery in the back until I get to the camp site then move it to the front when I get there for space reasons and if I am off grid, it will drive everything but the air conditioner.

Hey likin the the Pod!
I ride alot as well but the only thing I towed with my Wing was my dirt bike.
Do they make a tent that attaches to the rear of the Pod so you can stand to change
clothes or whatever?
Welcome, thanks for the pics.
Fred

totally agree. Who needs a huge RV when properly outfitted? The outdoors is where I want to spend time.

You might consider an Electro-Warmth mattress pad. This creates the heat underneath you, whereas an electric blanket makes the heat above you. Since heat rises, the mattress pad is more efficient and IMO does a better job of keeping the sleeper warm. They have a 12V version, too.

Make sure your rear-stored battery doesn't take too much weight off the hitch. Hitch weight should always be about 10% or more of the trailer's total weight. If the weight distribution is not kept to the front, you could end up with severe trailer sway that could cause you to wreck. Sway with such a small, lightweight trailer, you ask? Yep... voice of experience here, with my minivan I towed a 400# 4x8 utility trailer improperly loaded with negative hitch weight, and it acted ok for 3 hours of highway driving but suddenly, boy did I get a scare! All I did was slow down for a turn up ahead, and that trailer started whipping violently from side to side!

BTW, if you can add brakes to that Pod, they would be an excellent safety addition. In a situation like the above, activating just the trailer brakes can help bring the trailer back under control. And of course when some idiot pulls out in front of you or that big dog (or deer) dashes across your path, a shorter stopping distance can make all the difference.
