      The ultimate single wheel transport system for your motorcycle, ATV, golf cart, go cart, etc. The Swivel Wheel Transport System is a new single wheel design "type" system, available for interfacing with selected tow vehicles and Fifth Wheel travel Trailers with a Class-III or Class-IV receiver hitch installed.
Note: Be Aware! Since the introduction of the Swivelwheel product line, and the raised popularity of the product, other manufacturers have copied our Swivelwheel (implied trademark) name and posted it on their web sites, calling their products Swivelwheel. Fast Master Products Inc. is still the Original Swivelwheel System Manufacturer.

    The Swivelwheel systems do 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 Swivelwheel-58 (Single Wheel) systems.  The Swivelwheel-58DW (Dual Wheel) system has a weight capacity of 1200 pounds. This is sufficient for transporting the majority of the large motorcycles on the market, as well as ATV's, Electric & Gas Golf Cart, riding lawn equipment etc. There is a 600 pound weight capacity for the Swivelwheel-46 system. The Swivelwheel-ECO system has a capacity of 500 pounds.

   

    The Swivelwheel systems incorporate one single swivel wheel assembly with torsion suspension designed by Fast Master Products, Inc. and manufactured to specification by a leading torsion suspension manufacturer. The wheel assembly is a 5.70-8, "D" Rated, 6-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. Click on the following link for important information on Tire Safety (Highways Magazine) and the Recreational Vehicle Tire Guide (Michelin Tires).

     The front deck height on all Swivelwheel systems is adjustable to accommodate the receiver height on the tow vehicle. The deck is 3/4" treated/painted plywood. These one wheel trailers are available for various transportation needs. A self locking wheel chock is available for motorcycle transportation.

    Contrary to popular belief in some chat rooms, the Swivelwheel systems do 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.

    All Swivelwheel systems come standard with front removable jack stands with wheels for ease of moving around while disconnected from the tow vehicle.

        For further information on the Swivelwheel systems, feel free to contact us toll free at (866) 794-8357, or visit the Swivelwheel FAQ page here on our web site. You may also view the Swivelwheel Towing Requirements pages by clicking this link or clicking the link in the Literature tool bar at the left.

    If you have a Class-A motor coach, you may also visit the Cruiserlift RV motorcycle lift page for further transportation options.

NOTE:

    It is up to the Swivelwheel system owner to evaluate the towing capacity of the tow vehicle. All Swivelwheel Transport Systems (except Swivelwheel-ECO Systems) utilize a Class-III or Class-IV receiver hitch that is installed onto the tow vehicle.

    If the tow vehicle is to be a fifth wheel travel trailer, the trailer chassis frame needs to be evaluated for the capability of installing a Class-III or Class-IV receiver. The Chassis frame needs to be able to support the weight of the system plus any added loads. The Swivelwheel-46, Swivelwheel-58, and Swivelwheel-58DW systems will have about a 50/50 split. Installing the Swivelwheel system onto a chassis frame that does not have the capacity to handle said system could result in frame damage,  slide-outs that no longer work, gel-coat cracking, etc.

    Fast Master Products, Inc. is not responsible for damage to a tow vehicle that does not have the capacitry to utilize the Swivelwheel system.

    We have always tried to be up front and inform the customer of the requirements of the towing vehicle. Even though the Swivelwheel system was originally designed for the fifth wheel travel trailer market, there are some fifth wheel trailers that should be avoided, especially in regards to the Swivelwheel-58, Swivelwheel-58DW systems. These are the "Lite" trailers made for towing behind compact, mid-sized, and 1/2 ton pickups. These are usually below 30 feet in length and have GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) weight in the 7000-8000 pound range. It would be possible to remove enough king pin weight to make the trailer fishtail. Fishtailing is not a good sign for a fifth wheel. Once a trailer fishtails to a certain degree of angle, basically, there is no recovering. You are just along for the ride until the trailer finishes what it is going to do.

    Loading of the platform has a major effect on the handling of the system. The load should be centered as much as possible. This distributes the weights evenly between the fifth wheel and the Swivelwheel systems tire. Some will move the load more toward the rear of the system to reduce the amount of tongue weight on the towing vehicle. This is not always a good idea. Depending on the load, this could have an adverse effect on the handling. You could actually put more weight ratio to the rear than the front, which could cause the fifth wheel trailer to fishtail.

    Toys are getting larger and heavier, and customers want to take their toys with them. Unfortunately, there are times that they can't without the possibility of a problem. Sometimes, its better to upgrade to a different RV than risk damage to one that does not have the capability to carry the cargo.

A frequent question asked is if the Swivelwheel system is legal to tow in all states. There are basically 22 states that do not allow double trailer towing, which some call "Triple Towing". These states are the entire east coast from Maine to Florida, Oregon and Washington. We consider the system an extension of the fifth wheel chassis frame. We do not consider it a trailer. The system cannot jackknife or fishtail. It is not like another ball mounted trailer swinging from side to side. Some states may not have that same view. Always check with the states that you are traveling through for details. There are numerous web sites that will give you state by state information in regards to towing laws. One of the better sites appears to be www.towingworld.com/articles/towinglaws.htm. We have found discrepancies in all of them, but this one appears to be the most complete.

Standard Trailer Lighting w/4-Wire Flat Plug & License Plate Holder.
ALL Swivelwheel products meet DOT lighting regulations.
 Most states require basic lighting and or flagging when a device or load extends 48" and beyond the tail lights of a tow vehicle.
Example (State of California)
California Regulation #24604: Whenever the load upon any vehicle extends, or whenever any integral part of any vehicle projects, to the rear four feet or more (including extended platforms) beyond the rear of the vehicle, as measured from the tail lamps, there shall be displayed at the extreme end of the load or projected part of the vehicle during darkness. In addition to the required tail lamp, two red lights with a bulb rated not in excess of six candlepower plainly visible from a distance of at least 500 feet to the sides and rear. At any other time there shall be displayed at the extreme end of the load or projecting part of the vehicle a solid red or fluorescent orange flag or cloth not less than 12 inches square. The state of Texas also follows the same DOT guidelines under regulation #547.382.
