I carry a 72" and. 52" and it's not jammed tight but could use more room. They have a nice one in Br Craigslist with 20' box for 16,000.
I think i will good with a 14ft box. I managed to fit all my equipment in my old 14ft enclosed trailer and its only 6.5ft wide. So being the boxtruck is a good bit wider, i will be good. If i can get a good deal on this truck, then i should have enough left over to tint the windows and do graphics , maybe even a wrap on the box.

We don't do bag much in the deep south. Pluse KK has tons of other trailers to haul large amounts of debris in.

3/4 of the yards i use my walker on, i dump onsite. Or i have them scheduled where their garbage pickup is the next day, so i leave the bagged grass by the curb, or i could throw the bags infront the box.
