I'm looking at buying a dump trailer to use for mostly for leaf cleanups. I want to build a inclosed box on it and get a leaf vac that can mount to the back of it that I can also remove to use it for other jobs. I have searched the site looking for pictures but haven't found much. Can someone post links or pictures. Suggestions welcomed. Thanks

I need some suggestions. I have a 07 Chevy Work Truck. It has the small V-8. It does fine pulling my 10' trailer with all the equipment. I dont like the 10' dump trailers. What would be the ideal size to get ( 12 or 14 feet with dual axles ) I want to add a box and use it for leaf jobs.

Here is my set up. I would suggest mounting you leaf loader to the front of the trailer so it only takes one guy to empty it instead of 2 to take the loader off to dump. Just my .02
