So the excursion may make sense but the only reason to do it on a truck would be too much tongue weight? By adding weight (dolly) is there any possible way the trailer stays within safe maximum to weight? Also can't imagine what now happens with a failure of a tire on the dolly. Seems like a super bad idea.

Wow, that's pretty special right there. Those vintage small 5th wheels are funny.
From the half you can see I'm guessing it's only 20-25' long. A modern one that size wouldn't top 8k lbs, easily half ton towable. Might have payload issues, but not horrible. Probably a bit much for any SUV short of an Excursion or Suburban.

Curious how well that or the commercial versions tow when properly setup. Obviously backing up sucks, but you can often minimize that with some planning.

Could also be so that you can tow a fifth wheel behind a pickup truck that has a camper in the bed.
