F250 With 32' Car Hauler

Well, getting ready for our 2400 mile move to South Carolina and I loaded up the trailer to get a weight ticket. Here is a pic of the truck & trailer without the WD hitch hooked up. I hooking it up tomorrow.

I plan on four extra wide 1,000 lb straps for each car. Any other tips?? Trailer weighs in at 9,200 lbs without luggage. Will get a final weight in a few days.

i had a trailer just like that before i got a gn, it was a hopper, it was 32' deck, and a 7' hitch. and i had a 2000 f-450 4x4 on it the truck was 9000lbs and the trailer did fine.
turn wide and go slow, make sure the brakes work and you have at lest 1 spare tire.

Haha, yeah after four years it's time to move on. This can be kind of a rough town, but it is a town like no other!
