I know this is going to open a can of worms, but here goes. I was going to buy a new trailor for 2008 and have it built with half dump have not. Anyway it would cost about $5500. I really don't like a trailer and the idea of a box truck with a dove tail ramp sounds nice. Long story (question) short. For less than $5k I can get a 14ft 1989-1990 uhaul f350 deisel http://www.uhaul.com/trucksales/model_spec.aspx?id=DC The question is, would you trust a uhaul.... I know the driving history is, well , rough, but I understand they do do good maintanence on them.
