Fifth wheel/gooseneck conversions

A question asked probably more than once, but expanded in my query. The idea of a generator mount on an Airstream brings up another question and that is how to get enough tongue carrying capacity for an extra 200 lbs of generator, plus enough space to mount the generator so as to eliminate the need for carrying and hooking/unhooking the connection.

So, have there been any fifth wheel/gooseneck conversions of Airstreams to add accommodations for the above? Also, this may allow for additional water/waste capacity in the tongue area.


Happy trails and Good Luck

I've seen a photo of one, the goofiest-looking thing you have ever seen, which is opposite of your Airstreams' greatest asset.

Airstream says to never load the tongue over 1,000 lbs. Best to live with that and put extra gear in the truck or balanced on the Airstream axles.
