I believe tire chains are for drive and steering wheels only, not trailing wheels. They are on these wheels for traction and steer ability. There is no need for traction or steering in a trailer wheel.
When chain controls are in effect here in CA:

Trailers with brakes must have chains on one axle.

Do you plan on crossing a pass with your Airstream during a snowstorm?

Most of the time the requirement is just to carry chains. If chains are required I wouldn't want to tow over the pass, I would wait it out for a few hours if I could.
