I'd say start out with a trip down the Pacific Coast Highway, from WI, Port Townsend then around the Olympic Peninsula and down the coast. You can go as far as you'd like, but for a first trip you might want to only go as far as San Francisco. It's a great ride, you won't be alone (lot's of other bike travelers) and there are lots of nice camping spots. If you go to AZ it involves crossing the desert, a whole different game, and in my opinion, not much fun. Have fun!
Good bike trailers fit most good bikes. Watch Craigslist for a BOB trailer, they seem to work well for touring.
