Caliper lines have been open to water/air, most likely rusted frozen inside. Trailer has excessive rust. Looks like trailer collapsed in the middle and when reinforcing repair was made, hole for brake line was welded over with patch. Master cylinder line in tongue rusted off and not connected to anything. Master cylinder has fresh fluid in it but is probably rusted inside preventing fluid from pumping out rusted line. Needs master cylinder, most likely hitch shock, rubber tongue line, new hard line for trailer, rubber line to axle, T fitting, hard lines for axle to calipers, new calipers, bleed brakes and test. Approx 6 hrs to repair.

I pull with a Sequoia, so I don't notice a lack of brakes, but the rust and wheels are certainly a concern. If Sallen was closer, I'd certainly be interested in upgrading to something more dependable.
You can have that trailer shipped for little of nothing. Virginia to midwest (Iowa, Ill, wherever). Uship.com will get the job out to brokers and they will bid on the transport.
