are you looking for new or used? is manufacturer preference important? i used to work at yered trailers in Medfield, very big outfit with several in stock.I am not sure what he has right now but can usually get ahold of anything fairly quickly, if its too fat out of the way my other recommendation would be Wright trailers in seekonk ma, lemme know if your interested in yereds, and id be happy to sett you up with some contact information

I dont think you can even get an 8 foot, the biggest Ive seen is 7ft. Brand new, your looking at prob $7000-8000, atleast. Why would you want something that big? Youd need a minimum of a one ton pick up and a CDL-A license to drive it, you cant even get a license;) .

the 8 foot is the easy part, but James is right i wasn't even thinking about truck and licensing requirements, a dump trailer that size would be heavy even empty, but load it up with stone/loam and your gonna need a big truck and some from of CDL to move it around, just my 2 cents

ya it might i think for a chevy 2500HD its 18000 gvwr so we went down to a 8*14 we want enough room to fit

a lawn tractor and a leafbox for cleanups in fall
bobcats for big jobs
mowers for cuting grass in spring and summer

The capacity of the 2500HD is only 10,000lbs. The trailer is gonna weight atleast 6-7k alone plus 5-7k for the bobcat. Even if you have the 8.1 or the diesel, you will be over;) ...I know you have th 6.0 cause we discussed this before...You will still be over weight.

You will at least need a 3500HD dump or dually to pull it.

take it from sumone who knows, i worked on these things all the time, truck wise is your gonna be big problem, just need sumthin strong enough to lug it around, the gvrw will only be a concern in terms of CDL requirements, of which he already says is taken care of, a dump trailer that size ill have NO problem with a good size sjid in the back, so i wouldnt worry about that

FYI

We have a Bri-Mar DT614-12LPHD.

Its rated for 12k. It weighs 4k. Legal capacity is 8k. Granted its bed is only 14' long but we can pull it legally with our 2500HD w/8.1L gas. We use it to haul something as large as a kubota L35. It does fine with it. We also use it to haul mulch, stone, and for our leaf removal. We can also get two pallets of block/pavers/salt, etc.

We pull a 14'x7' dump trailer rated for 12K GVW behind an F-350, truck handles it great. But I wouldn't get much more than that, trying to stop the load sometimes can be challenging if you're not paying attention.

i got a quistion a 2500HD is the same as the f-350 because there is also just a 2500 not a HD one so i think there the same right???

A F-350 is a one ton, a 2500 is a 3/4 ton. The HD allows it to tow and have an overall greater capacity.

A 2500HD will never be able to handle the weight we put on our F-350. When we haul our fruit into the warehouses (we're orchardists), we are allowed to run any GVW with our trucks regardless of CDL. We put 24K behind our F350 with our goosneck and the truck doesn't squat excessively nor does it grunt and grind, it straight pulls that load wihout any engine upgrades. Go Ford.
