    are you looking for new or used? is manufacturer preference important? i used to work at yered trailers in Medfield, very big outfit with several in stock.I am not sure what he has right now but can usually get ahold of anything fairly quickly, if its too fat out of the way my other recommendation would be Wright trailers in seekonk ma, lemme know if your interested in yereds, and id be happy to sett you up with some contact information

    I dont think you can even get an 8 foot, the biggest Ive seen is 7ft. Brand new, your looking at prob $7000-8000, atleast. Why would you want something that big? Youd need a minimum of a one ton pick up and a CDL-A license to drive it, you cant even get a license;) .

    the 8 foot is the easy part, but James is right i wasn't even thinking about truck and licensing requirements, a dump trailer that size would be heavy even empty, but load it up with stone/loam and your gonna need a big truck and some from of CDL to move it around, just my 2 cents
