48 ft lq trailer and a 2500

ok im getting a 48ft living quarter trailer for the race car and was wondering how many of u have experience with pulling a trailer like this or a horse trailer like it with a 2500 short bed. i would think that it would do ok with a air bag kit. would like to hear some other opinions from people that have done it or would? thanks Ryan

My dad pulls up to 20K with his short bed 2500 D-Max without air bags. I'd recomend air bags. On my long bed 2500 I run dually springs and air bags.

If you can handle the tongue weight, it should work. I am not sure but doesn't your trailer have a long distance from hitch to axles? If so, this may be a problem with excessive tongue weight.
