Do many of you guys own one of these? I am buying a newer truck this winter and thought that a stake side might make more sense to me than a traditional dump. It looks like it can carry much more mulch and be better for loading things from the side. An opinions?

I have a 12' on my Chevy 3500. It was pretty flimsy, though, so I bolted plywood on the inside and that has stiffened it up and keeps everything inside. It is good for mulch, leaves, branches, etc. The truck is pretty good all around for what we do. Look into the Dominator bodies, they are more solid than the stake bodies, and even have a side door.
