The load in the trailer always trumps putting the same load in the car.

And they DONT say it’s forbidden. Only that they cannot recommend it. Big difference.

The easier the road (Interstate) the less it would concern me. Tires on the car will heat higher than those on the trailer. That’s normal.

As the trailer presents no forward wind load of consequence, it’s only the crosswinds. Natural & man-made.

Choose your routing. Post it. There’s always meat on that bone.
