Yes, Trailers are limited to 55 mph and also only allowed in the far right lane (except for passing, in which case you can go over an additional lane to the left).

Stupidest rule around... very, very dangerous for a motorcycle (much less with a trailer) to be in the right hand lane on (typically) heavily congested freeways.

Enforcement varies, and it's quite common to see trailers use all lanes ...I've never actually seen anyone pulled over for it.
