Recommended tongue length is 1.5 x the axle width. As for trailer weight, I limit trailer weight and load to not more than 350 lbs. There are guys that pull campers and load that exceed 500 lbs and seem to have no problems. The bike may handle pulling that much weight but braking and handling has to suffer. Not me!
