On the highway they seem very stable, suggesting that with proper design a conventional trailer behind a large truck can also be stable. Granted, 5th wheels do allow for greater trailer size and weight, although downside is multi-level floor. Many also sit very high making it hard to get in and out. My parents can no longer camp with my sister because her 5th is too high to be safe for them.
WOW.... I would like to see one of these trailers you are talking about. Here in Texas I have never seen a car hauler made to haul more than one car hooked to a bumper. But have seen a lot of goose neck trailers that might haul around 5 cars. I just googled it and couldn't find any kind of trailer capable of hauling 9 cars that was not a 5th wheel set up.
