Ideally, yes. But in a lot of cases they add too much tounge weight to the trailer to be worth it.

Got my dump trailer today- brought it slightly used. Its a 5x8 ez-dumper. I know should have went bigger, but this was a good deal and its all I need for now. The gate on this thing is awesome because its custom built to go 3 ways. I gotta clean it up paint it a little and such. Heres a few pics also one of the brake controller I installed a little while ago...

Dude thats a great little trailer there, what does something like that go for used? It looks to be in great shape too! Good luck with it that will be better than using a utility trailer.
