I could see using it to move your 5er or something but I couldn't see traveling across the US with it.
With the high center of gravity pushing forward on a set of single pivoting wheels like that I think even if your braked to hard it would pile up pretty easy on you. I can't believe that thing is legal to use.
Damn, and I just got done putting the fifth wheel hitch in the trunk of the Buick. :joke:
I read some of the feedback and I just can't seem to believe it. Pulling a 37 footer with 50mph winds and no sway? Hell I gotta dually and I get plenty of sway with 20mph winds. Looks like a :badidea: to me. But what do I know.

There are enough ways to get into trouble when towing. This looks like a goat f^^^ waiting for a place to happen.
We were camping at Cowan's Gap SP in PA. last spring. The guy in the campsite accross from ours was using a tow dolly with his 1/2 ton Suburban. He was towing a large (I would say 30+ ft.) trailer. Obviously he was using the tow dolly because the trailer was too heavy for the back end of the Sub even with an weight dist. hitch.
His site was on a slight incline, when he hooked up the trailer and tried to pull it out all he did was spin his tires. He tried and tried finally he just floored the Sub and spun his tires to the top of the hill to where he could reach level ground. Must have taken him 10 or 15 minutes to get off the site. Total Jury Rig.
No thanks. They just seem like a way to pull a trailer that was not designed to be pulled by your tow vehicle.
