"low boy" for auto

Is there such a thing sized for an auto or truck?
My googling seems to only show heavy equipment low boys.

Thanks

Not really.
But I suppose it is darn close to what I described so thanks for the link.

What I'm really thinking of, I suppose, is just a regular trailer with a regular hitch that I can pull with my RV (though I do want tandem axle).

I want to be able to pull a small pickup truck with a bed long enough to fit a mid sized motorcycle in the bed. But I suspect that is still pushing the limits of my hitch.

Thanks.

Would be a lot less weight if your truck can be pulled on all 4's

Ever think of putting your bike in the bed of the truck? There is a lift to automatically load and unload it. The cost is about 2K much less than 5K.

If it doesn't fit, you can modify the bed to extend your bed. Or if you buy a lift it extends out over the tailgate with very little weight on it. If you're interested in this option I'll look for the link to their web site.

I don't have the bike or the pick-up now so most of this is academic.
The reason for the trailer is about other things to use it for besides RVing.

Anyway thanks again for the suggestions.

Would this be of any interest to you, then you could tow something lighter than a pick up.

They have them in two bike models also but that could be a lot of tongue weight.
