I can't claim to be an expert, but I used to drive a 1998 c6500 with 18' flatbed and it scaled at 12500 when empty. I think you may be underestimating the weight. If however, the weight is only 6500, the truck could likely be loaded on a flatbed gooseneck behind a properly equipped pickup. That rig may be easier to find than a lowboy. At 6500 most medium duty wreckers could transport it as well. More cost up front, but way cheaper than an accident. I can't see the pickup getting good traction with that load and minimal tongue weight from a towbar, and using only the pickup brakes to try and stop that whole rig would scare the he!! out of me! Hate to be a doubter, but would hat worse to hear about an accident!

Even weighing in at 12500# empty a good tandem dual trailer will handle that all day long. I too vote for finding a trailer (if your truck has a gooseneck ball) or talk to a neighbor. Pay his fuel and buy him a good steak dinner.
