My half ton, about to have air ride rear air bags to help level it out. I'd like to get a deep trans pan to help keep it cooler but it pulls down the road good.

I'm not really one of judge, but seriously buy a real hitch if you are going to pull a trailer that large.

The 3axle is a bit heavy and with the folding ramps its a hair too small for 2 rigs... I wish it was mine too!

The idea behind a mini gooseneck is weight distribution and capacity. Think of your truck as a big lever, and the rear axle being the pivot point. When you use a bumper pull it puts the weight at the end of the lever, this puts more stress on the frame and takes weight off the front. When you use a goose neck it locates the weight over the pivot point aka the axle. Less stress, better ride and the trailers generally have more load capacity than a bumper pull.
