Bike trailers usually don't have a lot of effect on stopping with the exception of steep downhills or bridges. The worst case is a folding bicycle with nothing but a rear coaster brake and a heavy rider with long legs. On a steep downhill slope the riders weight will be out in front of the handle bar stem and the rear wheel will have almost no weight at all such that touching the brake will tend to send the rear wheel into a sideways slide which ends in a crash. In that case a good bike trailer with a heavy load might actually help if it puts weight on the rear axle of the bicycle. Don't even ask how i know about this! It is probably the only time I ever hit 60 mph on a bicycle. It was not fun.
