Just towed a '69 Overlander with my Tacoma w/o electric brakes

It no big deal really. Just thought I would add to the knowledge. I had to recue (drag) my new '69 overlander home today. I have a trailer that I pull with my sled (snowmobile)but that nothing like a tt. I pulled my parents '22 trailer a couple weeks ago up to tahoe from Folsom with out even really thinking about it. I didn't know sh#* about e-brakes and controllers. Then I found our '69 overlander. It was neglected and engulfed in nature for the last 4-5one years. The windows were all broken out by the neighboring kids. The floor are soggy from years of rain and snow. It was in pretty bad shape but had good bones. So... I replaced all four tires with some new sturdy 8-ply shoes. I rigged up temperary tail lights and borrowed the load distribution hitch. The electric brakes - no clue, bearings- hope they hold. My opponent - mother nature. For anyone who has to pull a trailer without e-the brakes with a Tacoma (double cab short bed trd)up and downroom the mountains don't fret. I took it nice and easy and never had a problem. I don't think I would use my taco as a regular TV but for the occasional "tug" it will do fine.
