I have a carry on 5x8 trailer with a wood floor and a 2000lbs GVW. the Trailer weighs approximately 500lbs making the capacity 1500lbs. how many yards of mulch do you think this trailer will hold without being crushed? Any help is good help, thanks.

I wouldn't go over 2 cubic yards. If the mulch is wet, don't forget to take that into consideration as it'll affect your weight quite a bit.
