My concern is do you ever need to get into tight spots if so the trailer is gonna be alot tougher to manuever if you need to haul more weight get a larger dump truck like a F-800.

I know around my area theres no hope and hell that I would get a trailer in and out of residential driveways let alone turning around in peoples yards. Most driveways here are range from 30 feet to almost a mile long and with the long driveways its usually once you drive in you can't back out (too steep).

Some of the driveways are just 8 feet wide and riding the front wheels partially into the ditch isn't uncommon when making the bends in the road. The other worry is trying to get back out sometimes theres 3-4 inches of loon sh** on the edges of the road where a wider tracked wheels rollover. Sometimes a guy has to drive over brush and push small trees out of the way the tires make their own road.
