Funny you should mention the toll taken on the pickup trucks. My son's buddy was also using a gooseneck on his pickup this same day. He hit a big bump leaving the field and the tongue weight sent the gooseneck ball plate right through the bed! It won't be hauling a gooseneck anyttime soon.Nice setup now your in business. Semis work good and your not working the snot out of them like a pickup and gooseneck. As long as you have good access to fields. Day cab with a 40 foot flat with sliding rear tandem works good. I have a 45ft. spread sometimes not as maneuverable. Just make sure you secure your loads.
I wished it was a true day cab so it had a shorter wheel base. It does have a slider hitch on it but haven't adjusted it. The trailer is 44 feet. Not all fields we have can we get a semi into them, but they are all small. We got a bunch of straps given to us but it seems you can never have enough.
