Motor should be up when trailer, and when not in use down, so the water will drain out of the waterpassages, this is important during freezing temps. Most all outboards will drain when put all the way down.

I try to leave my outboards most of the way down while trailering long distances just so they don't bounce. I have plenty of clearance.

It depends on the boat, some boats the motor and the trailer sit so high off the ground that you do not need to put it up. Some sit high enough that you can load and unload with it down, I would put it up to load it though. I would say if it is over a foot off the ground on the trailer you are safe to tow it with the motor down. Always always motor down when sitting so it can drain.
