Well if you go teardrop, you might be OK. Really depends on the motorcycle. I wouldn't do it. But others do.
Techincally, the Bunkhouse popup motorcycle camper would qualify as a fiberglass trailer as the main tub is fiberglass. No hard walls.
I pulled a Bunkhouse with my Goldwing GL1800, one of the biggest and heaviest motorcycles out there. Towing it was a chore, stopping took a long time, handling was not very good.
When I took my motorcycle to Alaska, I pulled my Escapade (small, light
, narrow, motorcycle cargo trailer). No way I would have taken the Bunkhouse that far. I got where I hated towing the Bunkhouse trailer.
Most motorcycle trailers do not have brakes
. In an emergency situation they can be scary. Realize you are pulling with a two wheel vehicle that has inherent stability issues, and pulling a trailer makes it much worse. The push you get pulling a motorcycle trailer downhill can be unnerving.
