  • 18000 lb load capacity appears to be max for any gooseneck - see terms at [1]
  • CDL applies to towing for hire only. Towing for hire is exempt from CDL if GVW is 26000 or less
  • For heavy gooseneck trailers for hire without CDL, load limit is about 10k lb if truck is 8000lb and trailer is 8000 lb
  • Max pickup truck-trailer combo weigh is in the 40k lb range.
  • Max width of trailer is 8'6".
  • Think of modular homes shipped on foundations in 4 pieces for a total of 44x16 size
