If you haven't already altered the trailer tongue, in this set-up it's going to sheer off where the vertical post meets the trailer frame.
Rather sooner than later.

The high-hitched bike trailer we have at work failed in a similar spot in a short time.

As suggested, put the hitch as low as possible on the bike.
I have yet to see a motorcycle trailer with a high hitch position

Bigger wheels would help, too.
