First thing is check truck itself drive it down the road at speeds you discribed. 40 to 45 is tell tail sign of U joint going. Pulling a trailer adds to strain on joints and will amplify it. Also check wheel bearings on trailer could be they are either loose or again from sitting have a hard spot from grease not being rotated though it. Jack up trailer and spin wheels see if the tire free spins or has a slight catch in it. Also check for wobble like a loose wheel bearing. If the trailer was sitting for a long time check bearings for rust. even though its new rust can begin on them and pit bearings giving the wheel a rumbling noise. Try to figure out what is wrong before returning to dealer so you are sure they replace defective parts.
