I was following a pickup with a camper shell today, and it was towing a smallish utility trailer. The trailer was weaving back and forth.

I have never seen this problem on the road myself, only in online videos.

Two questions: 1) What causes this? 2) What can you do to prevent it?
For how it happens I can only say what I've seen from the videos and demonstrations with models (of the toy variety).

Weight distribution and overall weight is my understanding.
