Small trailers that do have brakes usually use some sort of electrically
operated drum brakes. A strong solenoid to replace the wheel cylinder
should do the trick, but it may take some research to find a proper fit.
Alternatively, you may try fitting a standard trailer axle which already
has proper electric brakes to the custom trailer.
