    Ive been putting off getting a dump trailer long enough, heres what im thinking.

    14'
    lo-profile hvy duty

    Landscape gate>? ( Ive looked at a few models online and cant seem to get a good idea about the landscape gate option. I would like it for mowers and equipment but it seems it would be in the way when dumping material. )

    As far as brands im looking at Liberty, Big Tex, Bri-mar and ez-dumper.

    What kinda sticker shock can i look fwd too? 3-5k ? I know the big tex will be alot higher then the rest ...lol FWIW.....im shopping in the NW Indiana area.

    Thanks guys.

    i can tell you a buddy has run EZ Dumper dump beds in his landscape business for years and been very happy with them he gets the cordless remote too...nice for controlled dumping while standing behind the truck. i'll assume their trailers are good as well.

    we bought our 7X14 14Kgvw low boy from all pro trailers in fla. $4950 with ramps and welded in tie downs.

    have had a few wiring issues with the trailer, but still think it was a really good deal.

    Brand new CAM Superline 6x10. Basic model, nothing really special, but a great trailer. Was $4300 out the door with tax.

    A few months ago I bought a 12' x 6.5' PJ, with two 7,000lb. axles for $5,050. This trailer is very similar to Load-trail, and Top Hat. I'm located in Oklahoma, I think all of these trailers are made in Texas. They are all on the net though. Mine has a barn door style / spreader gate. I've never tried but it doesn't seem like it would work well for loading mowers into. When we loaded a wheeled dingo into it the other day, the rear end of it drug the ground.
