Where does everyone put yalls grass and debris at?

I was wanting to see everybodys trailer setups that bag grass. I have a 20ft trailer and run 3 zs and most of the time I run out of room for grass on the trailer. Im either going to get a bigger trailer or figure something else out. If anybody has pics please share.

Dump truck here too. 1 Ton w/ 8'x 12' bed. 2' high sides. and still wish I had more room a lot of days.

I use a walker with the dump bins too. But I get them into the truck reguardless of their weight. haha! I can tell ya, cutting not a lot off, on a dewy morning, will PACK that hopper. I'd guess those bins weigh over 100 lbs each. I also have a grasshopper with the 3 bag catcher. Bag type catchers are the easiest to work with/dump into a truck.

We have a box truck to hauls mowers and a 14 ft dump trailer with 6 ft sides holds around 18 yrds. We fill it everyday during cleanups.
