Golf cart carrier on Sandpiper 345RET

As many discussions as there are regarding hanging, attaching, or pulling anything off the rear of FWs, I thought I'd share this one that was on our local craigslist this morning. Check out his golf cart carrier. Looks like he cut off the ends of the tube bumper and bolted directly to the frame. 2009 sandpiper 345ret

Know the laws of not only your state but the states you travel through as well. Police can be very aggressive if you are breaking their state law. Ignorance of the law is not defendable. I was planning on Swivel Wheel for my fifth wheel in GA with WELDED double hitch. It is against the law to double tow in GA and FL.
You see people doing it all the time. Not right. Karma is coming!

But wait....if it is welded to the frame how can it be considered double towing?
This actually seems to be *the* answer to 5er drivers who do not want a Toy Hauler but do want a Golf Cart.

Seems the only thing you would have to worry about is any length restrictions...Thoughts?

Only the hitch is welded to the frame. The swivel wheel "trailer" is still considered a trailer in some states (and open to argument by some folks).

I'd be surprised if anyone welded the swivel wheel "platform" to the trailer itself.

There potentially is a difference if the unit itself is welded vs dual welded hitches. Some parks do not allow golf carts or other toys; ie, motorcycles. So the question is: adding a permanent edition adds to overall length and with the luxury comes the possibility of not meeting length requirements vs legal.
All I an saying is consider your wants versus needs. Some parks reserve the right to measure your rig and reject you if you do not fit their requirements.
Just say'n.
