(quoted from post at 20:43:51 06/24/17) I have a 5000 Ford and it is too much for a bumper pull trailer, I pull it on a gooseneck trailer, my advice is not to put it on your bumper pull, have someone move it for you or invest in a gooseneck trailer when you can but you will also need at least a 3/4 truck to pull the gooseneck...


The differences between gooseneck and bumper pull trailers are substantial but weight carrying ability is not one of them.

I had a 5000 and no way on a trailer that size, The 4000 was also way too much. As it curently is the 16' 2 3,500# axle trailer that I have I had my 1944 2N Ford on it once, never again as it is not strong enough even for that size let alone a 5000, that would totally crush my trailer. This trailer weighs 1,500# and my previous trailer that got wrecked when a car slamed into it weighed 1,750# and handled that 2N OK but was not big enough for my John Deere B that is way smaller than the 5000 Ford. A standard automobile carrier rollback is not going to be big enough for that tractor. You need one designed for hauling trucks.

A 5000 with loaded tires won't weight must more than one of todays diesel pickups and they haul them on regular roll backs all the time, but I'd recommend at lease a 9-10K lb trailer to haul one on.
I have a 16 ft car hauler style trailer with 3k lb axles that I haul my 801 Ford on regularly, it handles it quite well, even when the tires where loaded, I've since removed the fluid to reduce tire wear on tractor drives.
Not sure why you where having issues with a 2N that only weighs around 2500 lbs

I pull mine all over the place with a 10k bumper pull equipment trailer behind a F250. I wouldn't put it on a car hauler, you need to make sure your trailer is appropriate with respect to weight, but bumper pull is no problem.
