Trailer Sway

If you keep more weight ahead of your trailer axle than behind it, your trailer will not sway, regardless of tongue length. Pay attention to your trailer loading and use a little planning. Tongue length only comes into play when you're backing a trailer with the tow vehicle - a longer tongue is easier to back than a shorter one due to its greater turning arc. This is not an issue with a bike as you won't be doing much backing. Of course, a longer tongue makes a great place to add a cooler (and add more weight ahead of the trailer axle).
