That's pretty light for a dump trailer... My folks have one and it's about 2 tons empty! My half ton won't touch it but my step dad pulls it with his half ton GMC with overload springs on the rear. BRAKES are essential obviously. They have loaded it with 5 tons of sand or rock on MANY occasions. It's hard as hell on the truck and illegal as well. If you get one that's only 1900 pounds and you are just hauling brush it would probably be ok though.

Though my advice for any trailer purchace is plan ahead. Don't go with small now just because you feel it will be ok for now, because very quickly you will wish you had gone bigger.
