    No, not rusing through, although if i left it and not painted it for years, i'm sure it would have went through. You'll see what i mean when i put the pics up in my thread. I just finished painting it today. I put a primer and an epoxy black. I think it came out pretty good.

    Nice, They put a hell of a powdercoat on my cam dump and it has no rust except for the bed which gets rocks and pavement and everything else dumped in and out of it. It is only 2 years old though

    Good buy. I thought it was one of the cheep deck over rascal's when you were talking about it in your other thread. Good luck. Now all you need is a dump insert for your truck.

    Debris in truck, mulch in trailer. No shoveling at the end of the day!

    Nice dump trailer. I have a Brimar dump insert and I love it. They are a great product.

    That looks like a smart and wonderful investment. I've been researching them for a while now and am looking into purchasing one myself. Let us know how you like it once it gets some use.

    Thanks for the comments guys! I think it will serve me well! As for it being too heavy- I look at it like this: Trailer weighs 2,000 LBS, sides are (at most) another 1,000LBS, it's a 10K trailer so I have 7,000LBS of capacity. Now, I figure an average yard of mulch weighs 800 Lbs x 8 yards = 6,400LBS- I'm within my limit. My truck will pull 10K easy- I've pulled heavier with no problem. Also- if the weight would be too much for the volume- why would I bother to have a larger one :confused:

    Thanks for the comments guys- keep em coming!
