Trailering my Crew cab Long bed

I'm picking up my truck next weekend from the shop and my quest is will I have any issues loading the truck on a 20' tilt trailer. The entire deck tilts. I don't want to bring that trailer down there and not be able to load it. Thanks.

The truck is over 20' long so it'll be hanging off the end of the trailer but the wheelbase is about 15' so it should fit. How tall is the front rail on the trailer? That'll determine how far forward you can position the truck. Since it's a tilt deck I'm guessing there are no fold up ramps to get in the way at the back?

I'm not sure. Looking at picking up the trailer on my way to get the truck since I don't have a trailer. Here are a couple of pics of the trailer.

That's a nice looking trailer. Certainly looks stout enough to get the job done. That winch may not let you pull the truck up on the trailer as far as you need to. If the front axle is 4' behind the winch, the back axle will be perched right on the end of the trailer with a fair amount of bed hanging off the back. Looks like it would be pretty close one way or the other!

Thx. It has a 8k winch and 2 - 7,000 Lb Dexter Torsion Axles. I forgot to include the picture of the side. It hay hydraulic jack also. Pretty much every option available according to the seller.

I just don't want to buy the trailer then not be able to put my truck on it. You guys know how it goes.

I would check width cause your not driving over the trailer fenders on that unit

also, make sure it can handle 8,000 lbs the load is split pretty even between axles

and see if you need a trailer brake controller

I had the mechanic measure my truck and he said it's 80" wide.

From that angle the winch doesn't look like it's mounted as high as I thought so I think you could pull it up closer to the front and still have some wiggle room at the back. Not sure where that would put you at for tongue weight though. Too bad you can't try it on before you buy!

Found this discussion. Don't know if it helps or not but......
