Yeah, I agree. The back is critical.... For so many reasons... like you said, people stuck in traffic.

But even just in general driving around... Folks will see the sides when they are driving by and such but if you are behind a rig you can really see the back because that is where you are looking! hahah

Also for when you are parked on the side of a busy road.... People can see the back coming down the road..... It's not always possible to park in a driveway therefore being perpendicular to the road...

That's so funny about the dump trailer... Since you and Red Oak and myself had that chat, I have been looking at them hard and there are so many advantages to having one... Being able to haul a lot of weight is of course one of them but being able to haul equipment like track loaders and mini excavators is clutch! Being able to drop it at a site and let the guys fill it up while I am out doing other stuff could be huge too.. (LOL, when I get employees that is!)

What is the GVWR of your guys box trailers? I have a 7000lb 14ft but the tube frame is already denting and cracking where the springs hit underneath. The dealer said a 10,000 lb should be more than enough but I was thinking a 12000 GVWR , what do you guys recommend from past experience?

My 7 x 14ft 7000 gvwr box trailer , its 3 years old but the frame is giving way to light built , I plan on getting a new one this coming month otherwise I will be running a open trailer this year , wich I am kinda split on wich I like the best the open or closed , its a lot easier to back up with a open landscape trailer.

open trailer set ups that I run , a small 6 x 10 one for push mow accounts , and the larger 7 x 18 one for the commercial stops. I want to change things up this year but I have yet decided on what I want to do , as of right now unless I get a new trailer this is what I will be using.
