dump truck or dump trailer?

I would like some opinions from business owners who already bought both of these over the years, new or used.

Of course every business is different and the use of the trucks is always different, but from a general point of view I want advise and opinions on both of these.

What last longer? A f350-f450 dully, diesel with a 11 feet dumb box, or a standard double axle 6-10feet dump trailer.

- I know that the truck will depreciated faster then the trailer.
- Having a dump truck is probably easier for travel, for backing up etc.

I want opinions on whether or not I should be buying (used) dump truck or buy a new truck + dump trailer.

If anyone has run both of these equipment in their business, can you provide the advantage and disadvantage of both?
