If you plan on towing heavy and do go with a goose neck then I would go to a dually truck .

I vote gooseneck. I love my 25' deck over. Hopefully soon it will be replaced with a 35' dual tandem.
This load today would have sucked on a bumper pull.

That lumber isn't that much weight...looks heavier than it is. This didn't suck (really wasn't bad to haul), though it's not that often that the dump (10,500 #'s gross) gets that much weight (almost 11,000 #'s of machine). Only had to go a mile up the road.

Being we an 1hr 1/2 trip to where the wood was going on a crappy black top hwy. a bumper pull would have bounced to death.
I just don't see what the issue is with getting a CDL.

Guys on here waste more time trying to stay under weight or barely getting by with pushing trailers to their max.
