I back it on and tie it down with ratcheting large yellow straps that I picked up from Home Depot at $13 each. One around each axle trumper going to the front of the trailer and another around each front axle section going to the rear of the trailer. The straps minimize paint damage. Chains would be nice if i ever fab a damage free area to secure chains to and then will be cut to length with lever action binders to secure them snugly. Ramps would be nice if they slid out from under a beaver tail. Ramps sticking striaight up in thew wind flow will increase drag and reduce fuel mileage noticeably. Either deck surface will work but a lighterweight trailert would be nice. The Fergy weighs in at 3,000 pounds and you need a trailer that will haul that. When backing the tractor on you can observe the rear bumper and ensure it settles down at least an inch, preferably two in order to not become tail heavy and fish tail going down the road. You can use a single axle trailer, just make sure it is rated for the load you desire. A good clue is to look at the max tire load on the side of the tires and subtract the weight of the trailer which can be checked at a truck weigh station. The remaing number is your max load figuring the construction of the trailer is suitable for the load you intend.
