My old trailer had them on one axle, many of the new trailers in MI are sold like that.

My new trailer, from a much better place, has both, and it definately stops better, although my truck (3/4 ton 4wd ext cab ram) is heavy enough that it does just fine with no trailer brakes under most circumstances.

One thing that happened to me more than once with brakes only on one axle, was if you had the brakes on at all when the trailer was empty, it'd invert the shackle flip the axle off the ground.
