Towed my trailer all over the eastern and midwest states. Have hit 50 mi winds and still never know the trailer is there. Have pulled in heavy rain and gusty winds, never presented a problem. But that is my experience. Let's see what others say.
This is only a testiment to a personal experience one time on only one day on one trip and after 45 years of riding and is not intended to discourage anyone from pulling a trailer and was not intended to be considered a problem, only an experience. I have never had another experience like the one mentioned above.Some of you haven't been in the wrong place at the wrong time. Riding I-40 in the Texas Panhandle or Western Oklahoma with 45 to 50 MPH wind gusts coming from the side is bad enough without a trailer. I towed a trailer one time in those locations under those conditions and I swore if I could get home safely, I would never do that again. If you've never ridden in a straight line at a 45 degree angle, you don't know what you're missing.
