same trailer as me.. but somehow he managed to get sides on the back doors using the stake pockets which I can't do because there are bolts which hold the latch on screwed into the stake pockets so you can't get a piece of wood in there...

Plus a reason to use the dump trailer over the truck is that with sides the dump trailer is nearly 20 yards compared to 4 with a p/u with insert

x2... there are more pro's to a dump trailer then a truck. More volume, weight, no insurance, little maintenance, etc etc

If its 25 yards, thats 675 cubic feet...

16' (length) x 6.83' (inside width) = 109.28

675 feet / 109.28 = sides are 6.17 feet high.

Looks more like a 14 footer but who knows, but yeah they hold a lot.

Don't know what he tows it with tho.. 25 yards of mulch weighs 18,750 pounds plus the trailer weight is like almost 23k pounds.. too much to tow, and way over the trailers rating. Good for brush and stuff tho.
