Here is a old pic of my old super duty i found looking though some old pics. The trailer is really hooked up to the truck. i had a fifth wheel that we pulled a 32' goose-neck with and we needed to move the storage trailer from one spot to another on the property. it was pretty much empty but still pretty heavy. it was fun. thought you ford guys would get a kick out of it.

Notice the front legs on the trailer are still supporting the trailer and I am sure it is empty. I saw the same pic before w/ a chevy hooked the the front of Ford and it was pulling the ford and the trailer - Someone photo-edited it out? LOL - JK

no they're not...the landing gear is up just not all the way, if i was just pulling the trailer from 1 spot at the shop to another i wouldn't take the landing gear all the way up either, its a pain

You guys on here crack me up. Listen i don't have them time to be posting fake pics or playing around in photo shop. these are pics that i took of my truck pulling our storage trailer that i found and thought you guys would like to see. take from it what you will. i have attached some better quality "fake pics" for you to see. and the landing gear on the trailer is up on the pass. side and it is stuck on the drive side. its up only high enough to move the trailer.

Yeah, it also takes a ford to spontaneously combust in thousands of garages too :hammerhead:

You forgot the front part of the picture...you know...the part with the GMC pulling the ford!

Looks like a 45er to me..they really didn't make 53's when that trailer was made.

O' I believe that they are real. I'm from farm country.....Midwest, and we also farm. A 24' gooseneck trailer, loaded with about 10 head of beef cattle weighing approx 1550 ibs. each, plus the trailer, makes for a big load. That trailer is not even half that EMPTY!. Remember Ford frames are fully BOXED ............ask Toby Kieth!

Must have been hard pulling that trailer with the parking brakes applied seeing that they lock when no air pressure is supplied to release the parking brake.

So what kind of racks and equipment do you have in there? Do you have enough room for the mowers? Longer than any landscape trailer i'll have. Do you have to go thru the weigh station with that rig?

DJ Contracting you are right on NEWER trailers, but in those old ones when you did not have air charged to the system you did not have brakes, therefore they would be free-wheeling. Just like the one in the photo!

actually you really photoshopped that one! you cut out the Toyota pulling the chevy thats pulling the ford thats pulling the dodge, pulling the trailer thats towing the GMC behind it.

We put a ball valve on the service glad hand and filled it with air from the gas compressor in the pic. the truck had vacuum over hyd. brakes for the goose neck, just no air.

Matt the curved key board is nice, i don't know how much better it is for you. i mainly bought it because it was wireless.

That's insane... whats a trailer like that weigh empty... 15k? maybe.

I've moved several "storage" trailers before (with a class 8 truck). Some of them had the brakes caged so they didn't need the emergency line hooked up, just a service line to apply the brakes.

If any truck could do it then the ford could!!!

I think the line goes "If Ford can do it, then any truck could do it".

I don't see why this is impressive. Yes its a big trailer, but its not that heavy. Its not like its full.

I like them older 94-96 powerstrokes in them fords but if you want a real truck to pull that load day after day, mile after mile; it will NEED a Cummins under the hood!!

That is a cool pic though.

Some of you guys are easily amused. Looks like a 45 footer but maybe a 48'. Weight is maybe 10k lbs. Looks impressive but any 3/4 ton could do that and nowadays maybe some 1/2 tons.:)

Cool pic though. Thanks for sharing!

True, an empty trailer doesn't weigh that much, and about 70% of that weight is on the rear. Weighs about what my trailer and loader do. (pull it with a 3/4 ton Dodge/Cummins combo. Pic does make it look impressive though. I had one somewhere of me moving a 14x70 mobile home with my 3/4 ton.. now that looks cool.....(on site of course, not down the road) I did pull a 10x50 about 250 miles though.
