Howdy again. We don't cover it. Although it gets dirty it never seems to get much road spray etc and after probably 45000 miles of towing we haven't picked up a rock chip...yet.
Having said that I have seen some folks put a shield on the front of the trailer. I don't want to do that because it would prevent me from storing it under the motorhome...that and I haven't had a problem with rock chips so what would be the point.
Stable?...hmmm. I see the trailer in the camera but I have never noticed it move in an unstable manner. There is no way you will feel a trailer that light. We have seen it air-borne once or twice over big frost heaves or big pavement transitions like at a road construction project once. All ended well but the motorhome behind us saw air under the tires.
The tires are cheap so we change every four years and check them every time we stop for a break. So far so good and we have never had a blow out. We have friends with a similar setup and he put tire pressure sensors on the trailer. We thought about it but so far haven't done anything about it.
I have never looked for a trailer for a Fiat 500 and would be interested in what you find. Sometimes custom is cheaper and you can add some cool things like tool boxes to hold straps etc. Good luck on your quest.
