I have 2 BIG. Motorcycles and a great fold up trailer. THE ISSUE IS LEGALITY VS DESIRE. I tried to get a fabricator to beef my frame on previous 2011 Keystone fifth wheel, 36 ft, triple slide.
The ISSUE is with reciprocity of state and local police and it varies like all over the board. Some have never been stopped. Some grounded and made to disconnect and tow separately. Make sure you get it right or you may pay.
It is illegal in Georgia AND Florida for sure! You see people towing boats and motorcycles through both all the time. Depends if the local police have little else to do.
I have seen plenty of Swivel Wheels in different sizes. Owners LOVE THEM.
Last year at our rv resort a retired bz owner with a huge Ford King Ranch pulling a Huge $100,000 plus fifth wheel and a $10,000 variation of a similar product to Swivel wheel. He was a fabricator and his spouse was recovering from cancer. Traveling the US for 2 years.
He actually WELDED his into a beefed frame hitch on BOTH SIDES.
Took it to his local highway patrol, I am not sure where, but they ok'd it as as part of the unit and it met length requirements.
Some RV resorts have denied people access for having 2 trailers and a tow vehicle without booking 2 spots. Blogs other than FR are out there.
Just saying what I have seen and people I have spoken with.
Be cautious and ensure you are at least legal in your plated state. Gives you basis for discussion should you be stopped. Most shops will NOT tell you about legality. It is not their bz.
Be wise, be safe.
Ps: you can rent a lot of rides through Eagle Rider or local HD dealerships without the worry, expense of a Swivel Wheel and wear and tear on your own bike. Pack your favorite helmet, boots, gloves, jeans and Rock n' Roll😃
