Safety of pusher trailers


I am looking for some specific advice about pushing from a trailer. I see it mentioned in other threads, but I'm hoping maybe people with experience will weigh in pro and con. It could serve me, as a 20 inch hub motor wheel could be the front wheel on my recumbent (rans rocket), and also could go on a BoB trailer and be attached to my wife's upright.

But, of course, I've never been pushed down the road on my bike at 20 miles an hour. I understand the theoretical dangers (as noted in several posts), but sometimes such theories don't actually hold up in practice.

Anyone willing to offer experiences? Many thanks in advance. I'm dying to get myself and my family out of the car and onto our bikes more often!
