Trailering a super duty

I'm planning on buying a 2002 ccsb, but the only problem is it is over a 1,000 miles from where I live. However, my dad just so happens to be going out that way on a hunting trip. We were thinking about trailering it back. We have access to a trailer, but it's too narrow. I don't think a car dolly will handle the weight.

What would our best options be?

Catch a ride there, drive it back is probably the best bet. I don't have experience with flat towing a SD, but according to the Internet you can either put the manual transfer case in neutral or disconnect the driveshaft.

What are you driving out there & will it fit on the trailer?

If so you could drive the new truck back pulling the old truck on the trailer you drove out there with.
