Leaf Box

Hey guys,
I just picked up a leafloader really cheap but need help with designing a leaf box for my truck. I am a solo operation and do not have a dump insert for my truck. My leafloader will be mounted to the front of my enclosed trailer. I was thinking of sucking the leaves into the back of my truck, and then when I got to my dump site, taking the discharge chute and pointing it to the pile and vaccuming the leafs out of the back of my truck.

Has anyone done this before?

If I make a box for my truck should I just use mesh for the top and then barn doors for the back? I need to keep in mind when I go to unload the trailer will be there, so maybe mesh for the back?

Anyone have any pictures to share of leaf boxes?

I would buy a dumpbed insert, but I don't want to spend the money on one if I end up buying a dump truck next year, ya know what I mean?
