I had two dry pavement panic stops. When the ABS activated the the momentum of the trailer pushed the Astro severely almost into the car that felt cutting my following distance was a good idea.

You may want to check the adjustment on your brake controller, if you haven't already done that. When set properly, I would hope the trailer brakes participate in helping you to stop vs. pushing you into the idiot who cut you off.
