Trailer brakes can always be added. In California, all trailers over 1000 lbs (I think that is the threshold) must have electric brakes.
I think California requires brakes. They need not be electric.

However, the only trailers I have seen with brakes that were not electric were surge brakes on boat trailers and rental car hauler trailers.
