    Yea 1/2 for all the walls and the roof but we did upgrade the rear doors to 3/4 plywood . The pressure can be extreme and since there are no 2x4s in the door and the area span 6 foot tall by 7 or 8 feet depending on our truck the 1/2 proved to weak.

    14'x7' gooseneck dump with Billy Goats 14hp shredder vac.

    it can hold 22 cu.yd of shredded leaves.

    This week I'll be adding work flood lights to the passenger side and rear along with black reflective vinyl for advertising.

    that's a lot like my setup. I need to close the back of mine in though. It worked fine for several years just leaving it open, but now business is picking up and I need to be able to hold more leaves between dumps.
