    In think it would fit but it would be a bear to have to push it up the ramp.

    The perspective makes the picture a little funny... The trailer spare's relative position to the tractor makes it look like the tractor is hanging over the side in front.


    What you NEED is a weight distributing hitch. Too much squat in the rear of the truck, and that means too much tongue weight being carried directly by the rear axle. Either that, or roll the tractor back about an inch or two to remove some of the tongue weight.

    What is the weight rating for your trailer?

      meburdick; what u don't see is my frontier 72 RFM hooked on the back their, and when the loader is on, that's what I have to do to get everything to fit, I get a lot of crazy look's going down the road.big jim p.s. I just now on this post figured out how to copy, paste mulipite replys.

    gbhpp05; oh-yes it will, once hauled a f-150(my son's) to our local shop for work, took ramp off after loading it and hauled ramp in another pickup bed at the same time and then put it back on to unload it their. now I will say, it was way------------ too much for the trailer and the pickup hauling it, not the power part, but the swaying and top heavy, but I took it real slow and got their and nothing was damaged. also hauled one of them little excavtors too, I think it was a bit heavier then the pickup!! I don't load that heavy anymore. big jim

    meburdick; yeah I try not to do that to often, but when u need the loader with other attachments, not much choice, even iff I only live 10 miles away. I have tried backing it on with the RFM sitting on weight wise less on tongue and tractor over tandems and then leaving bucket over gate. that isn't to bad that way. like I said, need a longer trailer. in another couple yrs it won't matter anyway. big jim
