The axles used under most mobile homes etc are rated at 5,200# to 7,000#, so you might need three of them...if you continue to move forward with your idea.

Like others have said, use a late model diesel pickup as a tow vehicle...just hook up electric brakes (or hyd surge...but if you are going to be removing axles from one container to the next, electric wires are easier to deal with that hydraulic brake lines).

PM me if you have specific questions regarding trailers, axles, etc....I am in the trailer biz.
