It actually did pretty good. I still got it up to the legal limit of 20mph. It didn't seem to take that much more time to get there either. I actually noticed the trailer tires were a little low on air once I got home. When I pushed the bike into the garage from the driveway, I thought the clutch was engaged, that's how much drag there was. So, braking didn't seem to be affected.
I was more worried about the hitch than the weight itself. It's really just a tightly wound spring that allows everything to pivot. With that much weight on the tongue, it was starting to sag. I don't plan on carrying that much again, but it does great carrying a weeks' worth of groceries, which was the point of building it in the first place.
