FR3 towing trailer

We have an FR3 30DS and want to trailer a car using a rental trailer like U-Haul to our final destination, returning the U-Haul trailer when we arrive. Anyone out there have experience towing a rental trailer? Are they fitted with some type of brakes? Thanks.

the Uhaul towing dolly has surge brakes which are like you find on a boat trailer.

When the towing vehicle hits the brakes the towed vehicle surges forward and activates a master cylinder putting hydraulic pressure on the two dolly brakes. Harder the two vehicle brakes harder the towed vehicle brakes.
