I simply cannot believe this.......

Trailers under 3000 pounds Gross weight (total weight of trailer and
load) are not subject to brake requirements. However, if over 80" in
width they are required to meet the lighting requirements such as
taillights, brake lights, turn signals etc; provided the trailer is not
utilized in any commercial operation such as farm, mowing service etc,
it will not fall into the Federal Regulations. However, without knowing
what exactly the vehicle is going to be used for I can't provide you
with more specific information.
