I've been passed by a few Class B's on the interstate while towing our little Scamp!
IIRC, the new goodyear endurance trailer tires are rated higher. 80+ mph....

The old marathons could run at 75mph if the load and inflation were within certain bounds.

I towed a 3 rail motorcycle trailer (hauled motorcycles on it - not pulled by moto).
It had 8” tires. 3 bikes plus’s trailer maybe 900-1000 lbs. went all around the country often 12hours at a time. Never had bearing issues, never even a flat on it.
8” wheels spin pretty fast at 65-70mph!

Tires on our trailer are Sure Trail ST 4.80-8 Load Range B. Have made 3 trips to Florida and back from Maryland. Bearings might get warm but never overly so. Do carry a spare and tool to remove.

Adrian, always like to see custom trailers.

EnduroRdr and Joe, thanks for your experiences. Wow, I never would have thought that.

I need to make a couple trips across country over the next year or two and would like to bring some boxes of stuff. I do not want a big utility trailer (we have some on the farm), just something light that can haul up to 500# and not bounce when empty on the return trip. Has anyone had experience with the SylvanSport Go Easy (https://www.sylvansport.com/go-easy/)? Any other suggestions for an Agile?


Thanks,
Pat

We have a small motor cycle type trailer. Have filled it and used completely empty and drove 70 miles an hour plus. This has been on several trips from Maryland to Florida and back. No worries!

Think it depends n how you load the trailer

In anther life, I bought a "knock down' 'Bolt it together'c traier kit from Harbor Freight for less that $200. It had just 8" rims as recall. They were rated dor 55mh max!

I cut the frame down, narrowed it, welded it, extended the tongue, and added an automotive car top cargo box so as to use it as a motorcycle luggage trailer.

I think it was rated for about 700# but I carried only maybe100-200lbs max including the box.

I did remve one of the two leaf springs as it was too stiff for the reduced loading.

I used it over many thousands of miles at speeds typically 65-70mph with no issues at all.
