Seemingly with a generator that size, maybe a grow operation when they’re not at RV parks?

I'd be curious about the weight distribution by axle. Going down the road, is that extra axle loaded or just floating?

It's an interesting idea but I think a much simpler solution would be to build it on a swivel wheel trailer.

That is quite a piece of engineering. Purpose? Is it a good idea? Looks to be fine on flat surfaces but what kinds of stresses are put on the the frame when going into place like gas stations where there are huge changes in surface angles?

Why not an exterior dog kennel.

Not sure that is indeed a generator. Would the frame of a small trailer like that, even with an extra axle be heavy enough to accomodate a generator of that weight?
Also looks like a hitch w/o the insert in the center below the generator.

Then it wouldn’t be that heavy and it wouldn’t need the extra axle.

Nice! [emoticon] It could be the extra set of wheels keep the platform from scraping when going in and out of driveways.

Maybe, maybe not. Sometimes these contraptions are designed by mechanical engineers that actually know what they're doing and camp as a hobby. That setup looks very sophisticated in design just from the simple photo.
