I saw that one in use at campground on the coast. Asked the person using it why and he told me because the fifth wheel was a company unit that everybody uses and he stated if he had a fiver he would not use it. That was the biggest fiver I have ever seen had dually type axles and a slide out porch. He was towing with a F-250.

Only behind another trailer that is connected to the fifth wheel. Somewhere along the line the first connection is the fifth wheel.

Isn't this the same basic system that 18 wheelers use when they are pulling two trailers?
