Towing cargo trailer 5x8, 5x10, 6x10

Looking to buy a small enclosed trailer for 2-3 dirt bikes.

Wondering who has towed any of the subject trailers and what kind of gas mileage is expected?

Overall, how does it tow?

I will install a tranny cooler.

I towed a 5x10' trailer loaded w my golf cart and a ton a vacation crap from ATL to JAX and got about 14mpg. Pulled it fine and easy to handle. Some of the trip was a challenge to keep it in 5th and not downshift. If you run in 4th up long, long hills expect about 8mpg.
