    I just purchased a new 6x10 dump trailer with stake pockets. The trailer has two foot metal sides already but I would like to be able to haul leaves and other light materials such as branches and mulch. I just need some pictures and descriptions of how to build these sides from yall. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Bill.

    Bill what i would do is get pressure treated 2X6's notch it to fit the 2X4 pockets.That way you have more board for the plywood to addhere to then what i did was cut 2 4X8 sheets of 1/2 " in half that gives you another 24" which is just right to haul mulch .

    does your trailer have a barn door type rear gate or does it just fold out. Can you give me any closer of a pic. of the trailer. Thanks

    The whole gate swings away, and latches to the side, to be out of the way.
