    Looks good, but watch the fenders when you have a big load to dump. The fender that comes down in the back has a habit of getting stuck on the tires and you can't get it back down.I ended up cutting that little fin part off.

    Thats a nice looking trailer ya got. Ive been shopping for a dump trailer also and have been really impressed with hawke trailers. I like those fenders, so many mfg's use thin steel. The fenders get used all the time on dump trailers.

    Why does it look like it sits so high? Are they made in different styles or something? The ones ive seen sit a lot lower......nice trailer none the less

    Thanks for all the positive comments. We have been looking at trailers for the last 6 months or so, I borrowed a trailer like this on tuesday and got this one the next day. You could probably get a new one for the price but It is basically new. The inside is the only thing that is scratched. It was nice that this deal was in our own backyard, not out of state. Im not sure on how much she will hold, just got it yesterday. I havent even registered it yet. Hopefully the weather will turn soon.
