Towing 46' gooseneck

I am in the market for a 46' gooseneck enclosed trailer with living quarters for my race car. My truck is CCLB SRW currently I am going to switch out the rear axle to DRW and add factory flares. Anybody pulling that kinda weight with these trucks? are the frames ok GVWR is only 9900 or so on the sticker?I will add air bags to the rear and it is already riding on suderduty springs. From what I have found the trailer are around 10k empty and my setup is probably 4k with everything
Thanks

Mine was a 06 f250 SRW bone stock hauled this everyday with close to 10k did just fine, well the truck did the Diesel powered antifreeze sprinkler (6.0) under the hood didnt hold up, but I had it behind a 00 f250 SRW for about 3 years did just fine! 2wd thats y its looks so low & its loaded. I never has bags but probably not a bad idea.

That is ALOT of trailer, even for a DRW F350.

10k sounds right on the empty trailer weight, but you car and gear only weigh 4k?

Dont forget about the parachute factor of an enclosed trailer

Looking for Blue 40-20-40 seat for OBS. PM me if any known

Re: Towing 46' gooseneck

car is a tube chassis weighs 2460 wet. so 1500 lbs for gear and tools. I am not worried about pulling it just if the chassis will handle it. The motor is a
12v cummins with a nv4500.

Re: Towing 46' gooseneck

By 46' you mean from the nose of the trailer to the taillights, right?

Re: Towing 46' gooseneck

yes 48' is really close to a total of 65 which is a not allowed here, so 46 is the max I can have. But the ones I have seen have an 8' gooseneck and the rest is the deck.

Re: Towing 46' gooseneck

I've seen plenty of newer fords doing it just want to make sure the OBS can handle it.
