Just bought a 2006 Damon daybreak, 35' on a ford chassis. Looking to tow a 2011 Hyundai Elantra with a tow dolly(don't have one yet). It weighs a bit less than 2900. Do I need a tow dolly with surge brakes, or will be fine without brakes?

Doesn't matter if you're legal in your home state or not. There is no reciprocity on equipment or speed limits. You must comply with each and every state you travel in unlike drivers licenses and insurance.
Besides just as added weight takes more power to move it also takes more braking force to stop. Be safe and get them!
