2006 Softail Deuce

Trying to figure out how to bring it with me. I have been searching for options. I might install a hitch behind my 5th wheel?

Make sure double tow is legal where you are. Most states don't allow it. Many discussions on here about already. Also adding a hitch to any trailer usually voids the frame warranty.
Not trying to rain on your parade, just hate to see anybody spend a lot money, only to get in trouble by doing so. You can do a search on here, and learn a lot.

Been going through the same thing, to take my Roadking. I decided on the dual connect version of the swivelwheel 58DW

Thanks for the replies. I am not to concerned with the towing laws. They are relaxed down here in Al. I do have a CDL with doubles or triples.
I have done many searches on these forums and most come up with towing laws. I did find a couple posts that are helping me to decide on installing a hitch to the RV.
My last 2 RV's were Toy Haulers. With 5 grand children now, we traded our toy hauling for bunks. If the factory ok's a hitch modification on my Wildcat, I will go with that. I am lost without my Deuce while on vacations.

I looked at those. I already have a trailer. I can't justify another $2700.
I am thinking the tongue weight would be about the same?
My trailer weighs around 1000lbs. The bike 800lbs.
I do think your option would be legal in most states.
