If the Gross Combination Weight Rating of the combination is not over 26,000 lbs., and/or if it is a type of vehicle exempted from CDL requirements, then no, you do not. Vehicles exempted from CDL requirements include recreational vehicles and motorhomes, firefighter and first response vehicles, military vehicles, and registered farm vehicles. However, your state may have its own non-CDL licencing requirements.

Do I need to purchase insurance for a Trailer Rental?

As long as you are pulling a trailer (like a boat trailer or horse trailer), and it is hitched to an insured vehicle, as a rule you aren't required to carry extra coverage. If it's an RV motorized trailer, then you need coverage just like any vehicle.

That combination, unless it's hauling hazardous materials, doesn't require a CDL at all. Now, if that was a 12,000 GVW trailer, then a Class A would be required. There is no such thing as an air brake endorsement - only a restriction, and only applicable to vehicles requiring a CDL.

Do you need trailer insurance when pulling a trailer or does car insurance cover it?

Insurance laws vary from state to state so you need to check your policy. Generally speaking, liability coverage extends from the vehicle pulling the trailer but physical damage does not. This means that if you back a trailer of any kind into someone elses vehicle at a gas station your auto insurance will cover the damage done to the other persons vehicle but not damage to the trailer, boat, camper, whatever. You need to purchase a policy for the trailer if you want coverage for it but if you are only concerned with liability you need not buy the extra policy. As a matter of full disclosure, I own and operate a small Independent Insurance Agency in Georgia and have for 22 years. I also was an agent for a direct writer insurance company for 3 years prior.
