I am just wondering if anyone has installed the Blue Ox "Sport Carrier II" on their 5th wheel to haul your golf cart.
THis unit is 48 inches wide by 84 inches long with a rear swivel wheel and attaches to a receiver hitch coming off the frame. It is said to carry up to 1000# which is a Harley or Golf Cart.I would like to hear some feedback on this installation, thank you John
It's been my experience that with the exception of the 2008 Excel Limited 5th wheel, there isn't a 5'er built that's rated for a rear receiver and cargo for more than 150 lbs including the weight of the bike rack or cargo carrier or whatever is inserted into the receiver. Holiday Rambler would not install a Class III or higher receiver as an option when we ordered our 5'er. Our factory installed receiver is limiited to 150 lbs including the weight of the bike rack or cargo rack inserted into the receiver. If the weight of what you're planning to insert into the receiver, in this case the "Sport Carrier II, when loaded is less than 150 lbs, you may be ok.
Don't let all these folks scare you. It depends on your trailer frame. I have a 2000 Cardinal and part of the deal when I bought it was to have a heavy duty hitch welded on the rear. It has heavy angle iron welded across the frame in two places and the hitch receiver welded to it. I double tow every trip I take with either a 16 ft fiberglass boat or a trailer with two ATVs. I imagine I have up to 250 tongue weight at times. I check the underside welds etc on a regular basis and have never had a problem. I'm also from Kansas and double tow is legal here for a fiver. Never had a problem in OK or TX either. They like our money.

I have a HH & it has 250lb. on the hitch. I talked to Young who build the frames for HH about a Swivelwheel now Swivelwheel said that around around half the weight is on the hitch. Both HH service center & Young welding both said NO. Service Center said it would be ok for a while then my slides would not go in & out very good & after a while then they would not go in or out any more as they said my frame sag more & more. Blue Ox is about the same as Swivelwheel so just a word to the wise.
