can they search a vehicle that is being towed on a trailer?

Police if they have cause and your permission YES! True cause they do not need your permission.

Who are "they"?

Don't know who "they" are, but if the POLICE have reasonable cause to stop and search your vehicle, they can search whatever you're towing too.

Of course they can. If they couldn't then drug suppliers would deliver drugs in towed vehicles.

Depends on their resources.

Depends. If you have some type of RV that is registered as a home, it takes a proper search warrant to search it. I Think, don't quote me, the trailer may also be precluded.If he gets a SW, it must include the vehicle/trailer Written in Ink.
If you are pulling anything with an ordinary pickup; cop needs reasonable suspicion/probable cause( like, sees/smells something or a dog does), he can then search both truck, trailer, vehicle, whatever. Just because he, say, only smells pot in the tower but not trailer doesn't mean search limited to tower, only.
EDIT: Or, the owner's permission, or driver if reg. owner not present. Not a passenger's.

They would need permission or probable cause.
