I have the same dump tailer, 7 ton, regular hitch though, how do you like it?
I like the dump trailer. If all I did was lighter loads I would have gotten a bumper pull.
Can you not fit your stuff in your truck bed

Only thing is when the trailer isnt on you have no cargo space in the back because of that hitch!

There for we have bigger trucks that can handle a 20+ ft trailer with wat ever in it

I have a reversible hitch in the bed of my truck that you can remove or turn upside down and the ball is out of the way.

Ya my hitch folds down and I don't lose any space. I just like the way a gooseneck pulls 14,000 lbs better than a bumper pull.
To each his own.

The back of my leaf box is a hinged plywood.
I've seen other people do this on here. Do the leafs all come out or do you have to prop the door open?
