Help With New Trailer

Just got this monster, waiting to pic it up though as I am making the dealer repair a few things before I will take it. Decided that I needed a big trailer to move everything to OK.

Anyone else have a trailer this big and what should I look for and watch out for. The trailer is in great shape and I got it for a song since it was so big and taking up much needed space on the lot!

I am wondering what I will need to do to my truck to prepare it for towing this thing loaded down to OK. Thanks in advance for any help.

and be sure not to trun to sharp. If you bend a torsion axel you will pay for it big time. I work at a national trailer place and i have to fix em all the time

What type hitch does it have? I see the coupler size is 2 5/16 - Is is a 'bumper' pull type or goose-neck or ???
