I suggest a Bradley smoker it is an electric auto feed smoker. You buy chip's that are pre molded into disk's about 3'' in diameter they come in packs different types of wood as one burns out another is fed in  there are different sizes of the smoker also, my friend owns one stainless steel about 500.00

I'd suggest looking at Traeger smokers.  They use wood pellets and have just about any species of wood you would want to smoke with.  They are temperature controlled so that you can truly set it up and walk away until the job is done.  I have had mine for about seven years and it does a great job.  You can purchase the smokers on the internet, as well as the pellets.  The smaller versions should fit on your trailer.

I have a master built  electric model from Cabelas. digital temp and timer, about  the size of dorm fridge.and under $250 for the road, that might be an alternative. pretty light too . put a couple handles or some wheels under it. I use a furniture dolly under mine.

I have used a Brinkman Pit Pro(offset firebox) for over 20 yrs. Before July 4th, my wife said it was ugly and I should paint it.
Painted, new wheels, new boards for the shelf I set trays of meat on , looks like new. Not what I would call portable.

The Weber Smokey Mountain is about the most portable and inexpensive good smoker.

There are a lot of good units out there.

The smoking forums on the net will tell you the good and bad on everything sold and homemade.
I have never joined one but lurk some.

So you are talking about losing weight and now you want a smoker?!?!?!  LOL

 

Looks like TomLGT has a viable option!  I've seen ones made out of a couple 35 gallon drums before..  They work pretty good too..
