OK to winterize then tow?

Hope this isn't a silly question, but I'm wondering if it's OK to move the trailer after winterizing? We have to store off-site so I don't have the luxury to work at home. The plan is to winterize at campground on last trip of the year, then tow ~50mi to storage lot for the winter.

Will the antifreeze in the lines/drains/toilet bowl move or splash or have any other unintended consequences?

If anything the antifreeze will be better distributed

This past winter we pulled ours from KY to central FL, then de-winterized, spent a month, winterized in GA on the way back and pulled it though the snow to the front of our house for a week (couldn't move because of 15" of snow). Then we took it back to the storage lot where it stayed until August. (I take it out about every 6 weeks to exercise the tires.)

No problems with any of the plumbing.

A little late to the question, but we tow ours winterized all the time. Never an issue.

No problem at all. When headed home from our winter getaways, we generally re-winterized the trailer as we can still get a freeze at home in early April.

We usually do the winterizing at one of our last "warm" stops in the US then travel home with the trailer winterized.
