WINCH for loading truck/ trailer?

Hello guys,
I was loading my trailer with about 200LB of decomposing leaves in a 16'X20' tarp and thought, what if i had a winch pulling this in here for me! that would be a lot easier.
im thinking to mount in on my truck. I could attatch it to climbing rope so it could be removable if i didnt want it there.
i just saw gas powered winches are quite expensive nothing under $1000 for 1,500LB winch. which would be overkill for the application. id say 500LB capacity just to be safe, but prob never lift anything over 300LB into the trailer.
maybe a boom
does anyone use this?

I'd check into an ATV winch. I have a Warn and it has never let me down when I needed it. I know there are cheaper versions as well.

I've seen some of the smaller ATV winches mounted in a toolbox on the front of trailers for pulling disabled equipment on.
