Standard roll on wreaker trucks is the only way to go. They tilt the ramp down winch it up and tie it down securely and unlike a trailer, they have a dampened suspension. Moved four RV's that way about 20 mile distance from my shop. The most recent one, a RV-7A in June cost $85. Best money spent for a safe no hassle ride. When I moved the 12 I noticed no bouncing movement to the tail at all. This last time I should have removed the vertical stabilizer since some branches had grown in the neighborhood but they moved aside and did no damage to the paint. Something to consider because tri-gear RVs ride tall on these trucks.
I should have added that I did move the 12 without any of the tail installed and that the nose gear was tied down tightly and the tail was also secured by the tail hook. The 7A I recently moved had the vertical and Horizonal stabilizers installed and tied down at the 3 wheels but with the heavy CS prop there also was no tail movement.
