A crewcab truck pulling a 27' trailer seems like an awfully long rig to pull up over South Pass and down Grapevine Cyn. But the NPS did haul some heavy equipment in there, after the hot springs were included in the Park, so I guess it could be done. Snow has been an issue this winter.
Also, depending on current washboard conditions, your trailer could take quite a beating unless you take it very easy. I've seen small travel trailers at the Lower Warm Springs (but I don't recall seeing anything close to 27').
Pulling into the middle of the Joshua Tree forest out in Lee Flat would be a lot easier. You'd likely have the place mostly to yourself. And you wouldn't have to worry about getting snowed in.
