The reason I was asking what is in the trailer is to see how important it is to you. Most people that pull trailers behind their bike are pulling a base camp setup. They will set up base-camp and take the bike without the trailer on routes around camp.
I think you will loose a lot of the freedom that a motorcycle gives you, by pulling the trailer on a long distance trip. Plus, you will also loose needed gas mileage.
Think about it. Get smaller, backpack style camping gear.
Also; as you go east; the campgrounds get more expensive. A cheep motel will be close or equal to a campground.
