If your going under cdl you should buy yourself a 2 or 3 axle, single tire, 34' bumper pull and have the gvw derated to 9999 lbs straight from the manufacturer. I know of a guy that just purchased a brand new one a few months ago. Never used it because his doctor told him he didn't want him on the road. Might be able to get a good deal on it? No sense in having a gooseneck. The neck is just dead weight for staying under cdl. I had a guy working with us set up this way and he made some decent money hauling LTL & vehicles. Your welcome to call me if you have any questions.  My phone 760-868-4932 my website   www.flatbedcarrier.com  my forum http://ltlhotshot.myfreeforum.org/ good luck Gary M&H Logistics.

I don't think length gets factored into the equation.  It is all about weight.
