    those sure trac trailers are made in markle, indiana at the i-69 trailer center location. I don't know if that would be any cheaper.

    You guys are bringing up some good points. Certainly there are pro and cons to dump trailers. I think I would shy away from the drop axles as it would take a mile to dump a load. I wouldn't even mess with the ramps that they sell....you might bust a nut carrying those around. I like the landscape ramps they show on Bri Mar's website (under options). And I'm sure it's a heavy trailer but I really need something to haul mulch with. Maybe I'll check out the dump inserts for my pick-up.
