Fix it so it's road worthy then get yourself a "57 Lincoln convertible with an electric brake controller and hit the road. See the movie Long, Long Trailer starring Lucile Ball and Desi Arnez! What's the reason the trailer can't be bumper pulled? That's what it was built to do although a park model. I have towed a 45' with 2 tip outs just on the ball with my 3/4 ton Chevy. Just minor wind gust problems.

It's a permit load either way...towed or hauled...if width is 10 ft...and height is iffy on some lowboys.
It won't be a hard tow if you get legal. Have done it.
Mobile home mover or hotshot like Jones Motor.

Don't forget that cute little two wheel dolly that they dropped under the nose to carry the tongue weight. Not too many of those puppies around. And would you not have to start out with a Mercury convertible and change to the Lincoln when you hit the mountains? Not to mention having to let Lacy drive a bit. There is also a reboot on the payload number crunching exercise to include the jacks, the rope and pulley inventory, and all the other tools that got carried in the trunk. But since it's a Spartan, maybe, just possibly, it would be possible to just call the movers. Pat

Bingo!

I think in Fl the max trailer length is 40 feet, max MH length is 45 feet, combined tv and trailer length max 65 feet. No triple towing. Unless this has changed. 8.5 wide.
