I'd be curious how Freedom Haulers handles dips in the road. I've had times where the rear of my trailer drug and have a hard time understanding how this fixed connection would flex with it.
I looked at a video that seemed to show that it connects to the trailer frame with a heim joint type of connection. This would make it more or less rigid in the horizontal (steering) plane, but free to move in the vertical (up/down) direction.
I haven't seen one in person, so I might be off-base, but that is the only way I could see something like that working without snapping the trailer frame passing over a driveway dip, or lifting the tote completely off of the ground on a railroad crossing (and snapping the frame).
