Pulling a camper trailer in the wind can be done safely especially if you're experienced but if you're not very experienced at pulling a camper trailer or travel trailer then I would avoid pulling the camper trailer or travel trailer in the wind.

The wind can easily push you around with the camper trailer and cause it to flip over or cause you to be blown into another lane or even push you off the road.

I've seen some camper trailers blown off the road and cause the vehicle and the camper to flip over and injuring the driver and passengers and destroying the camper trailer.

For me even though I have experience pulling my camper trailer I will only pull it in winds up 30 MPH or less.

If the wind is blowing faster than 30 MPH then I will not pull my camper trailer.

If I'm pulling my camper trailer and the wind starts gusting higher than 30 MPH then I will pull over when possible and wait until the wind stops blowing or stops blowing as much.

I would highly recommend just not pulling the camper trailer in the wind because it's not really worth the risk of getting injured or killed or destroying your camper trailer.
