GCVR does have some assumptions about trailer brakes I am sure, and being you are at vehicle limit, it is in your interest to have trailer brakes.
What about trailer tongue weight? That adds to the front vehicle's GVW.

You're correct, the tongue weight would count to GVWR, but the bulk of the trailer weight is still part of GCVR. For the OP, his small trailer is probably no more than 300-400 lbs tongue weight.
