Here's my friends rig. It's set up to carry either a Jeep Wrangler or a Mini Cooper behind the cab. Overall rig is 73'. So far no issues and lots of thumbs up from truckers.

Don't know Tom ~ this is Rick Olson's personal rig. Owner and maker of Comfort Ride Hitch. He built the bed in his shop. Really neat rig.

You can get a decent RV Hauler for under $45K. Depending upon your domicile, you may need a CDL.

Daughter and I remember that video from a few years ago and we agreed that if her truck broke down that was how we would haul her 5th wheel home behind the MH

This way you can check your 5th wheel lights by simply by looking into your rearview mirrors! No need for a spotter! Why didn't I think of that? ��
