Sell large dump trailer for 650/6500 size dump truck??

I know this is a never ending debate in the landscape forum. But I figure y'all over in this area would be of more help.

I've got a large 18'x8' dual tandem gooseneck dump trailer.
She holds approx 23yds. Has a GVW of 25k pnds. I like the trailer comes in handy, but she is big and heavy. Weighs a Lil over 8k pnds empty. 90% of the time the trailer is too big for everyday use. It sucks hauling my Skidsteer in it when needed.

I've been tossing around the idea of selling my dump trailer and purchasing a dump truck in the F650/C6500 size and pintle trailer.
I could use the truck to haul my tractor and Skidsteer. Would be able to haul sand and sandbags for my other company. Also I've got a lot of connections with other landscapers, so I could possibly line up steady work hauling short loads of topsoil, sand, mulch.

Opinions fellas??!!
