    1) 30' fifth wheel may be at the upper end of the towing capacity for a 2500. Have you looked at the 2500HD?
    2) Many trailers don't have the frame at the rear to support a 'real' hitch.
    3) In some states, it is illegal to tow anything behind a trailer.

    Have you considerd a 'toy hauler' (RV with a 'garage')?

    I saw a 5th wheel with a lift on the back with one wheel. The wheel could go 360 so you could still back up. Don't know who makes it but it worked great. Had a Harley on it though. Good Luck

    I've heard of those. Sounds like it could overcome the structural issues. However, there is at least one state where it is claimed those are considered a trailer behind a trailer and thus illegal.

    Blue Ox makes a carrier like the one described. I talked to State Police in Virginia and showed them pictures of it. It IS considered a second trailer in Virginia and not legal. Check your local laws before buying.
