My 14,000lb GVWR 16' deckover with 3' tail weighs 3250lbs empty. A 10,000lb trailer about the same size will weigh <2500lbs.

You'd have to put a LOT of weight on an M to get it up over 6000lbs, unless the tires are loaded.

That said, unless the landscape ramp is built as heavy as regular ramps, they won't hold up. Being that heavy they will too heavy to lift.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

My 14,000# rated trailer, 20'+5' beavertail, deck-over gooseneck, weighs 5,250#. Actual shipping weight, printed right on the original dealer invoice, and no, it is not difficult at all to get an M to weigh 6,000#. A bare M, with no belly pump, no belt pulley, no PTO, and no wheel weights or liquid ballast, will weigh in at 4,250#

What make of trailer do you have? My PJ 14,000lb. 21'deckover with 3'beaver with 3 standup ramps scales in at 4,200 lbs. empty. This is a bumper pull trailer and if I would have went with a goose neck it would have been 500 lbs. more than bumper pull.
