I leave for FL Friday/early Saturday...unloaded trailer. anybody on my Route?

I will be heading down to FL for fun and sun, and picking up my euro TD on the way back.
I will be towing my 24' HEAVY dual axle trailer with hydrolic brakes behind my Suburban... anybody need a car delivered somewhere on the route?

I don't know how "right" a decision it was... stupid trailer lost two brakes, and I am ON VACATION fixing my trailer. add to that the truck has problems with engaging the front calipers. I replaced one of them, but it did not help. I bled them once, but I fear not well enough. I will now bleed them again with assistance, then if still not working, I will change the MC... wish me luck!
