    Cool, so if you get the BG on the tailgate you will bloww in from the front of the trailer? will you cut a hole. also what about the back at the top of the trailer ? will you just cover it with the tarp?
    Thanks.

    Yeah, I'll cut a hole in the front and just cover the back with the tarp. I might look into mounting it on the back of the trailer but then it's a pain when you get ready to unload the trailer.

    I have no idea what year it is...I've seen pictures of it and it looks like an older model.

    ya I have the full size bed so I can fill it wit a lot of leaves..... the tailgate mount sucks.... you have to take it off every time you want to dump.... it just blows

    This past Spring I built a box (approx 8' long x 82" wide x 4 ft high) on the front of my trailer (22' long). The whole thing comes apart with only 2 bolts. The sides are removable by lifting them up out of the stake-pockets on the side of the trailer and pull out on the front slightly to slip the sides in behind the L-bracket. Worked well for Spring clean-ups and is working well for leaf clean-ups. Just wish I had the time to make it into an auto-dump box, one that would dump to the side via a winch or hydraulics. That would make it much easier and less time consuming to unload.
