    How many yards of Mulch will fit on a 6.5 x 14 foot Utility trailer (duel axel). I do not have high walls on the trailer.

    If the sides are 2 ft the cubic feet will be 182. Take 6.5 x 14 x the height of the walls and you get the cubic feet. Then take the cubic feet times .03704 to get cubic yards.
