while travelling in europe this summer we saw a trailer connected to a camper rapido via a normal towbar but what caught my eye and other camper owners was that it also had 2 arms attached to the trailer which appeared to to be pushing against the lower chassis of the camper.
this allowed the camper and trailer to effectively act as one unit. they parked and turned the camper and the trailer stayed in line. there was no snaking etc. it was a very short trailer , just the length of the trailer wheels. anyone seen anything like this . it seemed to be a professionally built trailer . the camper was italian.

thanks mike interesting but no. about the same length and bigger wheels. and a straight forward hitch with the 2 bars to keep it straight to the camper.
we saw it in the camper stop in grado north italy . it was driving around reversing into spots then driving off to another one. i would have taken a picture
but it didnt stay still long enough. it certainly caused a stir with the other campers.

thanks spitfire
that looks more like it. i think the one i saw had one hitch and 2 stabilising arms but the principle is the same.
i wonder how well it works. might pay them a visit .
