Wanting some input here. Also wondering if anyone has done anything like this.
I've got a 2005 Forrest River Flagstaff 5th wheel camper. I would like to install some type of platform on the rear to transport my golf cart when we go to CG's far away. I'm guessing weight of cart would be 1k lbs plus platform.
I have several concerns:
1) Added rear weight and how much it will effect pin weight and towing. I know some of this can be counter acted with additional "ballast" weight in the front.
2) I also know that this would have to be securely attached to frame in multiple locations and done very well. I am concerned how the motion (bucking, etc) with the added "pendulum" weight of the cart will effect the 5th frame and cart mount.
I REALLY would like to do this, but not at the cost of damage or safety.
Anyone done this?
Thanks in advance
