Snow Chains

Anyone know how much clearance you need for cable type snow chains?

Snow chains are for the drive tires. Not trailing tires.

In the Sierras (in CA at least) you need chains on one braking axle of the trailer if the trailer has two or more axles.

If conditions are that bad, there's nothing recreational about driving!

PARK IT.

Rent short term covered parking if you can, but PARK IT til da sun come out and da snow melt! Abandon it and take Greyhound in preference to driving in "chain" weather!

They used to make a strap that would wrap around the tire for snow / ice traction. Not sure if they still make them and not sure if they would qualify as a substitute for chains even if they do. If they are still available they might be better for trailer use and need less clearance than tire chains.
