Super M is about 6000 pounds. Closer to 7200-7400 if you have loaded tires. I would get a 10,000# trailer 20' long as the minimum. A 12,000 at 22' would be better. You may want to haul that tractor with an attachment some day after all. Also, the extra length gives you options of positioning to balance the load.
You probably already know this, but you can use a tape measure to determine tongue weight. Measure the bumper height before putting the trailer on the ball. Stand on the ball and measure it again. Then measure the bumper drop with the trailer empty and full. If you weigh 200# your first measurement will tell you how far the bumper drops with 200# of tongue weight. It's close to linear in response, so if 200# drops it 1", 600" will drop it 3". Unless you have overload springs. The truck will probably pull best with around 2-3" of bumper drop.
You should also get a set of jack stands to put under the back of the trailer when loading / unloading. Otherwise the weight of the tractor can turn the trailer into a teeter totter and pick the back of the truck off the ground. That can be really exciting if you parked on a hill as the truck will roll. Should that ever happen QUICKLY either drive farther on or farther off. That will drop the truck back down and stop you.
