Brakes sometime squeal, wheel locks up

Sometimes when stopping one of the tires locks up for a moment, or appears to in dirt/sand near camp site. Also sometimes hear a squeal briefly like the brake is grabbing. It never seems to lock up and doesn't happen very often. I can take my hand off the wheel and she steers straight as I stop. Just wondering if there's trouble ahead and should have her checked out. Owned trailer for 4 months and logged maybe 1800 mile on her.

72 Tradewind, new tires and wheels

Hi, best thing to do is to remove all of the drums and inspect the brakes. Worn or grooved drums and shoes, broken return springs, and wheel bearing grease on the brake lining [shoes] are common things you will find with problems like you are having.
