5th grade math i do beleive!!! 6x12x2=144 cu.ft. which equals 5.3333333cu.yrds. you probably could get 6 on there

5.33 cubic yards...

6x12x2 (height of walls)= 144 cubic feet

144/27 (cubic feet per cubic yard)= 5.33

but with 24" sides you could heap it on there... if you just filled out the height of the trailer (like filling a cake pan) its 5.33 yards bt i would say 7-8 isn't unrealistic.

You may be more limited on weight than by volume. What is the weight capacity of the trailer? How much does the mulch weigh per cu yd? There are some threads on mulch weight, threads in the past couple of months.

I have a 6X12 trailer and 6 cy yds would be far too much weight for my trailer.
