    Any in sight into how to build a good sturdy box to hook up to a debris loader on my trailer. The Box needs to be Removable, and this is a 22 foot trailer that I only want to use half of so I can haul my removal equipment on the back. I would appreciate if anyone has any ideas

    If you want to blow leaves into the box, the material covering the box must be porous. My vacuum truck has a cover made of trampoline material. Its supported by a structure made with metal electrical conduit ( I think its 1 1/4" diameter). I would mount the vacuum box on the back of the trailer and put a curb side ramp on the front side of the trailer. I'd like to be able to back the trailer up to the pile, and I think it would be easier to unload.
    Heres a pic of the inside of my vac truck.

    I appreciate your time. This will give me some Ideas on this box. I have a porous tarp that is big enough to cove the box, but am going to need to support it like this. Thnks
