I've pulled trailers through awful snowstorms, everything from small flatbeds to 40' fifth wheels. The main rule with driving in the snow is to be smooth, this is amplfied when you have a trailer. Any sudden movments, braking, turning, ect. can get that trailer out of shape pretty quick. Also pay close attention to wind speeds with an enclosed trailer, high winds can push that trailer around a lot. Does the set up you are renting have any kind of trailer brakes? If it has adjustable electric brakes turn them down to the lowest setting to prevent lock ups. If the trailer starts to wiggle around on you, do not hit the brakes, slowly let off the gas.
How much experiance do you have pulling a trailer in general? Learning to pull one in a mountain snow storm isn't the best plan. No, I have never seen chains on a trailer.
