Others may have more input, but I think being a gooseneck 20+5 you’re going to be just fine at that length.
Unless it’s 15+5 in which case I would go a bit longer. I like my Jeep to be off the dovetail when loaded but not nosed against the front.

Thanks for the input and yes a 20+5. I was thinking that would still give me plenty of room to mount some large storage boxes up front.

So I think I’ve decided on the 20’ deck over gooseneck with 5’ dovetail I’ve been planning all along. It’s sitting on my dealers lot and ready to go and has most of everything I want on it. Not sure if it would benefit me to go longer so I could position the Jeep differently? But if it’s a better to go a bit longer then I’ll look into it.

Nice! Mine is a 20’ deck over but no dovetail off the back, and the ramps just pull out of little doors on the back. The nice thing is with these ramps I can put them on the side too and get a golf cart in front of the Jeep

20’ should be great for 1 Jeep and still leave room for those weld in tool boxes you we’re talking about. What kind of ramps does it have?

Put some 35’s on that golf cart and bring it out for some fun!

It has full width ramps that lay flat when folded in. You can even pull back on to them and strap down if you need to. Here is a screen grab from their website.

Spring loaded ramps? Looks great!

Yes, spring loaded. Its between the suretrac and bigtex (both local dealers), and I’m going with the suretrac. It is more money but the added features and some extra bracing seems worth it. I’ll probably go next week to seal the deal.

When I was looking at the Deckovers I was looking at the Suretracs. Really well built. Hope it works out.

Ok, you had me a bit worried about this, and it’s leads me to a couple questions. I checked again today and Michigan CDL law exempts individuals that use vehicles to transport exclusively for personal use with personal equipment. So my truck and trailer with a GCWR of 31k that are owned by me and only used together for personal use are technically exempt in Michigan. There is no restrictions on size or weight in the exemption so I think I’m good here. My bigger question once I leave the state of Michigan, does that exemption carry forward to the other states that I am towing thru. Or because they do not recognize Michigan’s exemption, do I need to get my CDL for that?

When I was delivering these for a living even though I had a dot number CA was the only state that I didn't have to go into the scales 3863.jpg

Yes but even for hire in California I didn't have to go through the scales

California is odd. Some things are easier, but don't worry, you will get screwed somewhere else to make up for it.

I like that my oversize permits are good 24/7 so I can run the big stuff at night when there are less idiots on the road.

Cali has signs up before their scales NO PICKUPS so I’d keep rolling by.

MS has signs ALL VEHICLES OVER 5 TONS ENTER

Each state is a lil different. Makes it a pain in the ass.

Private vehicles I’d just keep rolling by with the not for hire decals.
