Has anyone ever setup their service body to tow a gooseneck trailer. I've been searching the internet for this info. I am buying a goose neck horse trailer and really don't want to purchase another diesel to tow it. I have an 05' F350 SRW that according to my diesel manual included with the truck can tow 23k total w/ 12,500 at the bumper. My service body extends only an inch or two higher than a standard body side but it is obviously wider. I know it fits under the trailer fine but towing on the road is something totally different. Any advice or experience with this would be greatly appreciated.

I would take it with you when before ourchasing the trailer. I have seen numerous trucks with service bodies (most taller than 2" more) the necks on the trailers are just alot longer.

Thank for the reply. The trailer I'm looking at has an adjustable height coupler so I think I should be able to give myself plenty of space. I have just never seen a service body towing a gooseneck before and needed to make sure that it has been done before.

The 92 we have is higher than a stock box, and it is fine. Just have to watch those angles though, got a few dents in the boxes from it. Basically, ours is a flatbed with tool boxes on top of the bed.

Yep, there are quite a few guys doing that around here. They have higher necks on the trailers for more clearance.
