    OK, kids, I am in a bind and need some info!! I was all set to mount a new hoist on my stakebed to convert it to a dump. Still going on with that plan but got pinched on a job that a thought I had a couple of weeks to get done and has to be done by Tuesday.

    Tomorrow I am going to purchase a 14', 14,000 GVW dump trailer. Looking at a Bri-Mar low profile HD. Anybody have any idea on the going prices on these? My mind tells me a ballpark of $6,500.00 but I haven't had time to research them. I'm going with the Bri-Mar 'cause the dealer is close and I know they build a quality trailer. Just don't know how much I have to give for the quality!! :D

    Any and all replies are appreciated!!

    I would have to say that your in the ball park maybe a bit low for a 14K lb gvw also depends on options like barn doors side hieght and so on.To give you an example a felling 6x10 at10Klb gvw is around $5400 and the longer and more gvw you want up goes the price so your there have not priced brimar lately.

    I've got an 8' x 12' 10,000 Bri-Mar low pro dual cylinder dump with barn doors and ramps. I paid $5700 for it. Your deal sounds good. I wish I would have gone with heavier model like the 14,000 instead of the ten. Awesome trailers, I love mine.

    I picked it up today.

    I got a Bri-Mar 6'x12' 12,000 gvw. They didn't have a 14' in stock. I was bummed about that but I'll survive. I got it for $5,899 out the door. All things being equal I feel like I did all right.

    Thanks for the input, folks! It is appreciated.

    Good luck on your new dump trailer everyone. I am looking into buying one too. I am thinking about 6'x10' #7000 dump trailer but not sure if it is worth going with 26" side instead of 16" side. It would be extra $250 for 26" side instead of 16". I don't think you can fill up top soil or gravel up to the top of 16" side. But can you fill mulch up to the top of 26" side on #7000 unit? I will be building a plywood wall for towing leaves but I don't want to put it up every time I need to tow mulch or brush. So I guess I should go with 26" wall?

    Leaves are light. I would think ytou will want very tall sides for running leaves. On a dump truck I builf boxes 8ft tall sometimes. For mulch you may want even more then 26". I would get the short one and see if they can add stake pockets. Then build a set of sides to bring the height to 3-4 ft as well as taller ones or a leaf box for leaves. This will give you the diversity to use the trailer in any way you wish. Just slip the right sides into the pockets.
