Thanks for the comments guys! I think it will serve me well! As for it being too heavy- I look at it like this: Trailer weighs 2,000 LBS, sides are (at most) another 1,000LBS, it's a 10K trailer so I have 7,000LBS of capacity. Now, I figure an average yard of mulch weighs 800 Lbs x 8 yards = 6,400LBS- I'm within my limit. My truck will pull 10K easy- I've pulled heavier with no problem. Also- if the weight would be too much for the volume- why would I bother to have a larger one

Thanks for the comments guys- keep em coming!
