    I have a 1983 Ford 350 with 6.9 Diesel ,and I was wondering if I should put a
    landscaping body on my truck or buy a bigger trailer ? I have a 5x8 Hallmark
    enclose trailer but I need a bigger trailer. Any impute would be great
    Thank you

    with an older truck it's better to go with the trailer. My
    Main reason us that the truck has a limited lifespan and your on the end of it. So if you put a 8-6k$ body on it you want be able to get your money out of it before the rest of the truck is worn out. You want things to depreciate together.
