Do you have barn doors? If so we mounted ours to one of the doors. So it swings with the door. If you have a normal gate get a swingaway kit. Good luck.

All you need to do is weld a separate receiver on your pintle plate and you can do both.

didn't think there was enough room to put the swing away with the trailer on. Did you do this? if so do you have any pics of it? thanks
