I started looking around for gooseneck flat beds and they make perfect sense.
I can insulate the bottom for winter use and add lots of storage and carry snowmobiles, dirt-bikes, jet skis, street bikes, generators, More fresh water, mini split Air condition system and including my wife's car.
(at different times)
This will solve the water tank sagging and whole lot of problems I have been having.
Also since the 5th wheel trailer is now cargo, I don't have to pay the outrageous license plate rates and only pay for the trailer which is real cheap in comparison.
Even this is better than picking up a toy hauler the cost is much cheaper, at least half price of a new one.
Thanks IWRITECODE for the picture now I am really motivated.
My truck is already setup for Gooseneck or 5th wheel, all I need is air bags.
Now the only thing I have to do is decide on an aluminum or steel gooseneck.

You need to be careful as a lot of rv parks wouldn't allow a vehicle like that in.

Not sure how you define "a lot" but I doubt it would be a high percentage of cg's that wouldn't let you in.

Another pic for inspiration - even if this one is a little rough around the edges. Saw this last year at an antique truck/tractor show.

Probably the "RV Resorts" wouldn't like this, "Campgrounds" probably wouldn't care!

We don't stay in resorts and have traveled all over the western U.S. and I would say 60% of the camp grounds will not allow homemade trailers and this would be considered homemade. I'm just putting this out there for thought.

Be careful how tall you make it, might not fit under some or the bridges you may encounter.
