    2-3 at most, if youu need more it might be worth getting it delivered.

    You can fit about 2 in there. I had a 6.5ft. box on my old truck, and I was able to fit 2 easily.

    1 yard fits well. just my opinion but thats why i have trailer and i buy my mulch in the bag it's easier & cleaner to apply
