Pro tip

Get yourself a cheapish laser temp gun. Monitor the temperature of the hubs by the wheel bearing at rest and gas stops. The temps will get hot if your wheel bearings are failing.
Anything can happen, and usually does. Do your best to minimize the chances.
I always just (cautiously) palm the hub. If it's warm(er) than you are used to it's a sign something is going bad with a hub, bearing or brake (if equipped).
Make sure you have appropriate tongue weight. 10% minimum or you can develope some nasty trailer sway at highway speed.
