Need some help

Hi all,
Im looking for a trailer to haul my off road truck on which is about 17ft long and just about 7klbs. I haven't ever owned one but gooseneck is what everyone is saying. Only problem is I am having a very hard time finding an 18ft (preferable) gooseneck flatbed. I could go 20 but where I plan on keeping it that is getting tight.

Anyone know of any makes or where they sell them? Looking in the seattle area.
Thanks!

Big text offers a 14 et equipment trailer in 18 that you can get with a gooseneck option. Their website has dealer locator. If you can fit between the fenders it's a good option

I have heard nothing but good things about big tex but I only saw the goosenecks 20ft with a 5ft dovetail. Ill go look on their website for that.

Gooseneck is my preference, but if you don't need the length, don't bother. Just get a smaller equipment type trailer that's better suited for your application if you really want, you can probably contract to our have a trailer custom made for your application with tie-downs where you want and axle placement where you need for the turning and weight distribution

Yeah I may have to go bumper pull. It isn't a normal truck, its called a Pinzgauer. My dad has a 6x6 version so it is kinda long but a ton of fun to drive. We plan on doing trips across the state and down to nevada from here so some long distance trips. Ive heard its also a lot safer and easier on the truck because its over the rear axle and not behind the bumper.
