A couple of the guesses are not too far off, but they totally disregard the dynamics of the situation. What happens when things move, bounce and flex as the trailer is towed down the rough highway? Much more complex and beyond the scope of an Internet opinion game.

"Statics is (physics) the branch of mechanics concerned with forces in static equilibrium while dynamics is (mechanics) the branch of mechanics that is concerned with the effects of forces on the motion of objects."

I once tried hauling a 250 lb dirt bike on the bumper of a 23' TT. Caused a sway event that nearly put me in the median. Never again.
