I have done a lot of hauling for individuals.

I am based center of the Oregon coast, basically Newport Oregon. Coast hwy 101 and Hwy 20.

Nevada, Washington, Idaho, around Oregon.

I prefer to stay with in a 1000 mile radius of home.

Trailer has 10 4" welded winches designed for hay primary, chains, binders,,,has flip over ramps with up right bars in case the last 6' is used by vehicles or what ever, 17,500lb winch mounted forward with various shives (blocks) for angled loading or as such. trailer is rated at 20,000lb with double duels on slipper springs, size is 32' long deck x 8 1/2' to 10 1/2' wide out riggers.

special permits or as such is the shipping persons responsibility.

I general charge $1.64 per mile one way, subject to change due to great leaders idea to 'charge more so the public will use less',,ummm yea,,maybe on paper it works.

Contact at: [email protected] in subject line wright "green tractor talk" then what you want.

Added some pics of a few loads, ranging from 2 miles to 750 one way.

I see your truck is an F-250. Did you do any special suspension modifications to accommodate that much trailer?

First i want to apologize for having not replied sooner.

I put a set of air rides under it with air pump in cab and a single gauge on dash--i use this for knowing how much weight is forward of the trailer as well as lower and raise the rear of the truck about 3 inches,,,,,works well when the trailer is all the way down and still the landing gear is making contact with the ground,,,,it raises it just enough :good2:

With the F-250 being a 2006, special air mounts were needed, they had them in stock but they did send me the wrong ones first, I even seen the chart they go by and it was confusing,,,,got a new hat and a $25.00 off next purchase from Jegg's, like the hat best though :hi:

By adjusting the air i was able to get better traction driving in a freezing conditions of eastern and south eastern Oregon this last February hauling about 10,000 lbs. down over the Blue Ridge Mountains. It was a little concerning when you realize you have been going up for a while and then it finally dawns on ya that it is 4am and the snow plows haven't even been there yet and about 10 seconds latter the rear wheel spins,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,ummm yeaaaa,,,,,,,,,slowly reach over and turn a little dial that says HIGH 4X4 and head it all on the up side where the reflectors are and try and keep as much side road gravel under ya as possible at about 15 to 20 mph...... forecast when i left was to be sunny and dry for 5 days on a 2 day drive,,,anyyyy ways i used and adjusted the air many times and found what worked for the load and the vehicle,,,over air it would tend to be jumpy and slightly hoppy and stiff wanting to slip some,,,to low of air it wanted to be cushy and bouncy slightly and seem to want to catch some air while skipping across the ice roads, it took many miles but i know my system well now.
