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.

'03 7.3 Lariat. 320k and counting

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.
