Just don't forget about adding brakes to the dolly.

Can I add brakes to the dolly I have now? Was wondering if that would be possible.

If the backing plates bolt to the axle you can replace them with new ones complete with electric brakes. Depending on the size you need they cost between $200.00 and $500.00 for a conversion kit.

Surge brakes are also available. However they are a bit more expensive and require the replacement of the hitch, and addition of some plumbing.
