    Can anyone point me in the right direction, regarding one of those utility/dump trailers?

    Specifically, Im lookiing for an open utility trailer with side dump so that I can carry equipment and a load of material at the same time.

    With a 1/2 ton truck you have limited your selection of utility/Dump Tailers most are 20ft in lenght, and when you add equipment, that greatly limits the amount of weight the Dump can carry. Most are 13,000GTWR and above 2500, and 3500 truck size

    I am upgrading to an F350 this week. Thanks for the heads-up.

    Also look into how much weight you are allowed to tow with out a regular license. In Maryland any trailer over 10 k you need a class A CDL unless it is a camper.

    Great trailers. Just ordered another one last week. Let me know, maybe make a deal if I was to order two of them, mine and yours?

    Check out the capstone trailers. There is a link in the the thread corey4671 posted as well. I bought a 20' 12,000 pound but haven't made it out to pick it up yet. I'll be sure to post a follow up when I pick it up though.
