Yeah for me i have both but The cost of maintaining one is cheaper and so is insurance. Also the fact of how they are very versatile is also a plus. Can haul heavy equip. such as a skid, Also on small jobs we throw mulch from the bed- with a dump trailer its easier because you dont have to climb up and down it all day!
ALSO with a dump trailer in the fall, you dont have to worry the night before a snow storm trying to get the box off of a dump truck so you can plow the next morning. All we have to do is unhook the trailer go.
