Towing with the Swivel Wheel Transport System

I am seriously examining using the Swivel Wheel 46 Transport System to tow my scooter. The draw of this device is that it is small (4' x 6'), light, and one can back up with it. The platform goes directly into the receiver and the swivel wheel swivels! I've seen the video. So, what's my question? Does anybody out there have experience with these? Seen them? I really don't need speculation. I need hard evidence before I drop the gavel on buying one of these. Thanks for any help you can give.

No experience. But I would treat this the same as if I was putting a bike rack on the back of my camper. I would be worried about how things are riding/bouncing constantly. This would be good motivation to get a rearview camera installed on the camper. Also has the awesome benefit of having full view behind you in traffic (lane changes, etc). But more importantly, if you see the scooter moving around more than it should, you can pull over and check the tie downs before disaster strikes.

Good suggestion. I do have the rearview camera and it is an important component of driving and seeing this scooter, the traffic, the trash cans I'm banging into.
