Well have read a lot on the forums about the pros and cons of a dump truck vs a dump trailer, obviously they have both their places. But for me, I have decided to go with a dump trailer. Would have to pay over 15k-20k for a "considerably in shape" dump truck to add to my company + all my licenses and permits to be able to drive one, insurance, tags etc. I will be using my 2009 Dodge Ram 6.7L 3500 dually to haul, I want to buy a goose neck dump trailer for less wear and tear on the truck. I use to rent small 6X12 dump trailer that I would always overload to the max every single time, they are just to small. I want something bigger, but without pushing my truck to much, or the trailer. Obviously it is very hard to find a used trailer, most people don't sell them as you already know. I want to buy a over killed-heavy duty trailer that I know every time I fill it up it barely puts stress on the metal frame of the trailer. I am looking at these two; http://www.autotrader.ca/a/Griffin+...0081203092301953/?ms=trailers&showcpo=ShowCPO http://www.autotrader.ca/a/Griffin+Trailer/16+ft+Dump/DURHAM/Ontario/5_16544628_ON20081203092301953/?ms=trailers&showcpo=ShowCPO One is a 7 ton, other is a 10 ton, would 10 ton be to much for a 3500 dually truck? I have been told to stay away from Tr-axles since the turn radios is awful and i will use my tires way to fast. I have seen 10k dump trailers with 2 axles (dually) so 8 wheels, which seems more stable, trailer has 10k pounds axles, which I still think is not over killed enough for me. So question is, stay away from tri axles or not? Max dump trailer I can haul with a 3500 without breaking it? What good companies out there, Canada or maybe USA (if they are cheaper, and I won't pay to much in gas/borders to bring it in Canada) are good, over killed heavy duty dump trailers? My current driver's license, I am able to have a total outfit of my truck 3500 + trailer of no more than 24250 pounds. So I believe a 10k dump trailer I would need to take courses for a new class, I am not sure the weight of my 3500 dodge ram, but I'm guessing between 6,000-10,000 pounds. Thanks!
