Talking My custom built swivel wheel trailer

Thought a few of you would like to see a custom built swivel wheel trailer I built to pull behind my 5th wheel. Unlike the commercial ones, this one is built like a tank, low to the ground and has 12" wheels not 8" You could use it for a bike, ATV or golf cart. Next it gets a Gen. attached to the back with a alum. plate toolbox.

I'm putting a gusset on the receiver arm and maybe another 2 arms to stabilize it.

Looks good, but I would definitely reinforce where the receiver tongue is welded to the trailer.

Cool looking. Never seen even one.
I guess it's basically like a cargo rack, just with wheels for added weight carrying capacity?

Very nice!!

A buddy of mine made one very similar, but he used two receivers and stingers. They were about 4 feet apart. Just a little more security.

Great job!!

Thanks for the posts. I'm thinking about putting 2 receiver arms on too.

Seen a couple and one of them had a monowheel. This is by far the best I've seen. Keep us posted as to how it hauls.

Double hauling is not illegal in any state... as long as you got your CDL with doubles endorsement
