Put your hand out the window at 65, now figure the small surface area there and then look at the surface area of the trailer. If you want a enclosed trailer, perhaps a snow mobile trailer would be good. They have a slope at the front and will cut down on resistance.
I know what you're saying. I have pulled open trailers several times with different motorcycles. I figure if I do this one cost will be having to keep the speed lower.
