    I love Goosenecks. Nice trailers, a little on the heavy side, but nice.

    I have finally found the tag on my hitch, class IV rated to 12k, I have also found class V hitches available rated to 16k, while goosenecks look like they would pull better, the cost of a new bed mounted hitch, and the higher cost of the trailer itself makes it seem like going with a class V receiver hitch would be ok for pulling a 14k trailer with a near capacity load as long as the load is well balanced.

    I can only make assumptions that my 8k tractor along with loaded tires , an FEL and BH must weigh over 10k probably close to 11k, add 3k for the trailer weight and I am at 14k....

    Your tractor is probably in the neighborhood of 8800-9000lbs.

    Bullit is more in the right range from my experience for what you list. Probably not over 9k, at least not much.
