I "assume" that is the same one discussed a couple of years back. IIRC had a choice of battery or gas. could move battery to RV to reduce load on hitch. don't remember any complaints/problems with it.

I looked at the specs briefly. At 400-480 pounds it might be a little heavy, that depends on the weight capacity of your hitch and vehicle. The class C I used to have had a hitch weight capacity of just 300 lbs, yours might be more.

I see they are powered with 3 12 volt batteries. that's a whole lot of weight before you add on the weight of the unit.

Have you ever weighed your rv all loaded for a trip ?

Do you know that your rear axle and tire rating will support the weight of the cart, batteries, the addition of a rack and hitch head to haul it ?

Measure the dimensions of the cart to see how long the hitch shaft needs to be,
to fit the cart and rack so it does not hit the rv.

I would think the longer the shaft length needs to be will determine how the whole package removes weight off the front axle. That will determine how it will affect handling of the rv.

People tow cars all 4 down bc it has no hitch weight. What you want to do is hitch weight.

Seams like I've seen a hitch platform with caster wheels.

Yes, i forgot about those carriers. That would be a Swivelwheel carrier. The single wheel model is $2200, the dual wheel model is $3800. On both models they use an 8” wheel. I don't know anyone who has used one and have never seen one being used while on the road. But , i guess it could be an option for the OP.

Some CG’s offer carts to rent as you need them. Some will charge you if you use your own. It has to be worth the investment to do this.
