If the FMHE can hold a gallon of trans fluid, that'* better then a extra quart in the pan.
Now I'm going to sound stupid. What'* an FMHE? Cost is not too much of an issue if I can do this comfortably.

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.
