Swivel Tire Golf Car Trailer on a 320

Has anyone added one on the Smart Trailer, Swivel Wheel Golf Cart Trailers on the Back of a 320? I saw one at a CG in Myrtle Beach this weekend, on the Back of a Montana. The owner said that he could not tell any difference in pulling, when it was attached. I'm thinking that the weight of the Trailer would not be much more, than the existing Bike Rack, but would worry about the additional weight of the Golf Cart, on the Back of the camper. The wheels will offset some of the weight, but was going to ask around to other owners, before I would consider buying one. Would love some input.

Wait till after warranty is up then.
Palomino will void frame warranty if any type of hitch is mounted or unit is used to tow.

Just be advised that with the single wheel of the swivel platform touching the ground that some states consider that another trailer (so you are triple towing). Triple towing is illegal in some states. Check your state for regulations before you buy.

Just a bad idea with an accident on the end of it. Tiny tires, hiway speeds (even if they are rated for such) is just silly. I does seem to work, however. I have seen them on I-95 and it is not pretty watching the side to side movement of the whole thing. I just back off and figure I can tell the State Trooper what I saw before the crash.

If its pinned to the back of the fifth wheel and there is no pivot point between ...how could it sway from side to side?...or I missed the point in the demonstration when they were backing them.

One additional consideration is "Total Combined Length". We have a 38 ft 5th wheel combined with a Dodge Ram quad cab and 8ft. bed. I was told that some states limit the combined length to 60 ft. The one that comes to mind is NC. I would check this before I purchased. Might not get pulled over but if you did have an accident you would be SOL.
