SINGLE WHEEL TRAILERS
The ultimate single wheel trailer for your motorcycle, ATV, golf cart, go cart, etc. The Swivel wheel Transport System is a new single wheel trailer "type" system, available for interfacing with selected tow vehicles and Fifth Wheel Travel Trailers with a Class-III or Class-IV receiver hitch installed.
The Swivel wheel system does not include the adverse effects of a bumper pull trailer, which is the ability to jack-knife when backing or fishtailing while driving. The Swivel wheel system will always track with the tow vehicle whether in the traveling mode or backing up. This is especially important when attached to a fifth wheel travel trailer. With other trailers, the second trailer must be disconnected prior to backing the fifth wheel trailer. If the circumstances are just right, this tends to be a major problem. When the fifth wheel trailer is backed up with the Swivel wheel system attached, the Swivel wheel system tracks in a straight line with the fifth wheel trailer. No need to remove the Swivel wheel system to back up.
There is a weight capacity of 1000 pounds with the system. This is sufficient for transporting the majority of the large Motorcycles on the market, as well as 4-Wheel ATV's, Jet Ski's, Gas Golf Cart, Riding Lawn Equipment, etc.
The system incorporates one swivel wheel assembly with torsion suspension. The wheel assembly is a 5.70-8, "D" Rated, 8-Ply, highway speed trailer tire. This tire has a load rating of 1075 pounds at 100 PSI cold inflation. With a system weight capacity of 1000 pounds, the tire will never see a 1075 pound load.

The deck is 8 feet long, 7 feet wide in the front and 4 feet at the rear. This semi-V configuration keeps the system in your lane of travel when making turns. The front deck height is adjustable to accommodate the receiver height on the tow vehicle. The deck is 3/4" treated/plywood with optional polished diamond plate decking. This one wheel trailer is available for various transportation needs. A Self-Locking Wheel Chock is available for motorcycle transportation.
Contrary to popular belief in some chat rooms, the Swivel wheel system does not include the perceived caster flutter while driving down the road at any speed. The swivel assembly design was engineered to remove the (as we call it) shopping cart caster flutter syndrome. This is true with a loaded or empty deck, as well as at city or highway speeds. The systems also include an adjustable friction pad and rotor assembly to alleviate any chances of flutter in the caster assembly.
There will be a new Swivel wheel product available soon. The Swivelwheel-46 system is a smaller unit for use with the small pick-ups and SUV's. Specifications on both products are shown in the general specifications chart below.
