Can't remember for sure, but things changed a few years ago, and any trailer weighing over 2,000 pounds has to have electric brakes. This even includes tow dollies, since they will go over the limit when a vehicle is on them. Count the connections in the plug, if it is more than 4, then it probably has brakes, and yes, to be safe, you will need a brake controller, and the necessary wiring to go with it.
