The trailer I posted had simple (cheap) leaf springs . It also had small tires and a standard 1 7/8" ball hitch . We didn't pull it off road , but did hit a few rough gravel roads . The biggest learning curve was how heavy of load versus tire pressure . Didn't really have any problems except at low speed . If you dropped a tire in a hole at under 5 MPH , hang on sport it would make everything go sideways quickly . I would imagine trailers with motorcycle wheels / tires would make rough roads a bit more pleasurable and cut rolling resistance . Always wanted to try a tent trailer , back when I had my Aspencade 1200 . No desire with my Wee Strom .
