How many cubic yards can my trailer safely carry?

Ive been mowing for 15 years and never really did much mulch till now, mainly now to keep employees busy.
I got a 16' trailer with 2 3500lb axles and a second 20' with 2 5000lb axles and would like to know how much i can safely put in them without overloading them with a cubic yard weighing about 800 lbs. From my math about 7 yards in the 16 footer and 10 in the 20 footer....maybe a tad more with the hitch taking some of the load....or i could put another yard or two in the bed as well.

Thoughts?
