That must be some trailer. My camper is no lightweight at 750ish kg loaded. I would definitely recommend electric brakes if the trailer has them. And if not, get them fitted somehow. When you are going down steep dirt tracks you wouldn't want to have anything else. Also can help stabilise the trailer if you get swaying. Get a sump guard, and with that low mounted turbo, be mindful at water crossings what cold water will do to a stove hot turbo. I would be interested to know what the argument against a cooler is. What model of camper trailer did you get?
