I know what you meant…I was just "giving you the business"…We're always talking about low ballers and hacks and those price shoppers who had caviar tastes and tunafish budgets.

Keep looking, you'll find someone who is willing to workout a good deal with you. Good luck.

every trailer is different, but my dump trailer would fold in two if I cut through one if the sides. The sides of the trailer act like a bridge truss dispersing the load while dumping. I'm sure that some dump trailers have a subframe that is built heavy enough to do this, just be aware

Adding side door to dump trailer

I thought this was a really cool idea but it's for a tandem truck. 16' box with regular swing air gate but the whole side of the body opens up.

Obviously that's going to cost more (and weigh more) though.

I see your point. My sides are only welded to the frame every foot or so with a 6-8" weld then some black caulking between the welds. If you cut our a 50" section, build a post against the remaining part of the wall to use for stability and for the closing/locking mechanism for the door I can't see too much of an issue. I mean it's a factory option from PJ trailers (mine is a Sure-Trac) so it must do just fine. Based on your name I assume you're working with lots of loose stone material. Very heavy stuff. Some trimmings, edgings, mulch and even topsoil I can't imagine it being that traumatic to the trailer. But I have my reservations with it too.

That's cool.

all the strength is in the floor, or at least it should be. they make stake side flat bed dumps.

its only an issue when stuff is piled up right against it and packed or rammed in. something that wont be happening with mulch and clippings. I manage with concrete and its all good
