With a beam of 10' you will need overwidth permits in each state you pass through. Although the displacement is only about 13-14000lbs the weight is going to be up fairly high so you will need a heavily built trailer to do the job safely. I've hauled a lot of equipment with everything from pickups to the largest semi's and you should not underestimate this trip you are considering. Anything less than a class 8 truck with semi trailer and you are asking for trouble IMHO. Dudley is a reputable boat hauler and I personally used Load a Boat to transport our 40' from San Diego to Anacortes and they did an excellent job. Good luck, maybe we'll see you in Desolation this summer.
