I tried making sure the harness belts were tight enough but that helped a bit for his body but not that well, so I worry about him when he is asleep and I am on my way home. For those with trailers that have a recline seat do you still have that problem? I am thinking of purchasing a single trailer but have only been looking for ones with recline seats and only two exist, and if that wont help I will just buy another trailer that I have been eyeing.

How old is the child? Most trailer manufacturers, and the CPSC, recommend the child be 18 months old before using a trailer.

My 5 and 7 year old sons still do that if they fall asleep in the car. Unless it is cutting off his breathing, I wouldn't stress about it too much. They would do the same thing in the trailer as well.

I currently have a double trailer and his head does that, but I was trying to figure out if a trailer with a reclining seat or a slight recline be better.

Yes, we do call it "nodding off," don't we? My point being that it is a position the human body is perfectly suited to being in. We tend to look at it, as less flexible and resilient adults, as rather more uncomfortable, but I doubt the kid finds it that way.
As a parent though, you want your child to be as comfortable as possible; you could try one of those "neck pillows" popular with travelers. You know the ones that curve around the neck to keep the head from lolling around.
