If that is max weight your are going to haul a 14,000 lb. trailer would do and if you want to go to 16,000 lb. it wouldn't cost much more. I think you would like a low profile deck over better than an equipment trailer that has fenders. Your truck should handle that all right. You can go bumper pull or Goose neck and most guys prefer the GN pull trailer. I have used both and have no problems useing ether one of them.

What is a fair price range I should expect/look for? Are gooseneck usually more expensive? I really only expect to need to pull 10k at the most but it sounds like 14K is just as affordable/more common. Glad to hear that my truck is not going to be a problem. Thanks.

The poster below is right kinda. After you have dodged a dog or a deer. (I know you are not supposed to dodge either, but you can't help it) You will really appreciate a goose-neck. Or pull on a ice and snow covered road. That's why at a tractor show you will see so many of them.

I bought in 2012 a new PJ 14,000 lb. low profile bumper pull 24 foot, 102" wide ( 21ft. flat 3ft beaver with 3 spring assist stand up ramps for $5,300.00 ( also included spare tire and carrier and a 12,000lb. jackstand). If I would have got a gooseneck it would have cost me about a $1,000.00 more. I looked at new and used for about a year before buying new. I found that if I found real good trailer or a trailer that was only several years old that they were only five to six hundred dollars less than new and sometimes more than new. One other thing a 14,000lb. GN will weigh more than a bumper pull taking away from your pay load.
