there have been a few threads about it here, trailer part suppliers sell the parts, you cut the trailer and weld part of it to the trailer, then you attach the folding portion to the cut off.

Sodar had a thread about it. I think the company he used was pivithitch.

I had one on a different trailer and HATED it. The mounting point made the bowstop too far forwards, the trailer then gained too much tongue weight and towed like crap. So make sure if you install one that the pivot is mounted where it won't change the bow stop posistion.
