I have a 18' gooseneck with a 2' dove tail, in the front it has two loops welded to the frame and I installed two recessed swivel D-rings with extra bracing in the dove tail. I use four 10,000 lb ratchet straps with hooked ends. In the front the straps are hooked in the k-member below the front mount bolts. In the rear I use axle straps and hook to the d-rings. I pull straight, no criss cross and usually go around it twice tightening. So far no problems.
