    Hey, i am thinking of putting plywood sides on my 6X12 trailer and tarping leves into it. I mow a lot at the end of my street where a house was torn down and there is a 3 foot deep hole the size of an average foundation that needs topsoil. The owner said that i could dump leves/grass there as long as i spread lime on it and turn it every 6 months. VERY CONVEINIENT!!

    My question is how thick does the plywood have to be and what are the best designs for anchoring it to the trailer. Thanks!

    I did the same thing to my trailer. Used 3/4" plywood. Attached it to the frame using U-Bolts. Tied the sections of wood together with heavy duty zip ties to keep them from wobbeling. Sorry, don't have any close up pics.
