Where in Nor Cal to have brakes and possibly axle install on 13í Boler

After researching last night I realize that without brakes on the trailer I canít load anything into my trailer and tow it with my 07 Subaru Forrester.
This will be fine in the short term as I can travel with most everything in the car but I am looking to add the brakes soon so I can increase the amount of weight I can tow.
I am looking for suggestions in the Northern California, Sacramento area for a reputable place to add the brakes and possibly the axle. (Need to double check whether the axle is necessary, Iím picking up the trailer today!)
Itís a 1979 Boler 13í
Thank you in advance for your suggestions.

Thank you in advance for your suggestions.
Keep in mind if you put things into the rear of the Subaru they needs to be added to your tongue weight allowance which is pretty low on the Subaru to start with.

You will also need an axel for sure if there are no mounting bolt holes on the axle that is on the trailer. If it’s the original axel on the trailer it most probable does not have mounting holes for brakes so you will for sure need a new axle.

I'm up in Redding, may be a bit too far north for you, but I can recommend Redding Trailer Center.
Phone, (530) 241-2312 ∑ Address. 4161 Eastside Rd; Redding, California 96001
Dave is the owner, I would ask for him and mention your project, they do axle swaps, brake installations, etc. And are very good at what they do.

Allied Trailer on El Camino in Sacramento can do the work. I occasionally shop their retail store but have not had work done by them (Their shop is just down the road from the retail store). I did get an estimate once for a new axle for a Scamp 13 I briefly owned and it seemed reasonable. The staff at the retail store are nice and competent.

I would check with Allied RV in Sacramento to see if they do that kind of work.

You might also check with Valley Spring in Dixon. They even build new springs from scratch.

It may be necessary to get a new axle ever if your old one is still good. If you have an axle without the flanges necessary to mount brake assembly's you'll need to get a new axle with flanges.
