Grass Clipping and Enclosed Trailers

I recently purchased a new walker and bag 100% of my accounts. Just personal preference. I'm wondering how you guys deal with clippings when using an enclosed trailer? Any feedback would be appreciated.

I don't bag everything but I do use an enclosed trailer.

all debris goes into the truck bed. I've even thought of getting a walker in the future and would plan on either using the bin inserts I saw on a video or get the high dumb. still everything would go into the truck bed.

I already have the dumb.....

Anyway, when I need to haul clippings, I usually put them in the truck bed as well. That way I can drop the trailer off at the house and just drive the truck to the place where I dump.

I have an enclosed trailer and an open one. I have a 1 ton dump with a stake body with plywood screwed to it. I can remove from any side or back to load. I just drop thr trailer off to the side at the dump spot and hit a button and its gone. In my pickup we store the spare in the truck bed with a tow strap attached. I tie the strap to a tree and most of it comes right out. The rest I use a pitch fork on.
