Yes, they flex and handle different. In very simple terms, the radial will squat, and the bias won't. You bias tire, will carry more of the load, even if it is on a separate axle.
You ideally want all tires to carry the load as equal as possible between them.
On a trailer, it not nearly as big a deal as on a vehicle that needs traction. You combine them on a vehicle and you run the risk of your rear-end passing your front-end.
