Another hybrid dump trailer thread

I know it’s been brought up a couple times but I’m looking at buying a 20’ hybrid dump trailer. 12’ dump section, 8’ utility. I know tongue weight is going to be a bit of an issue even hooked to my f250. The plan will be to remove the front wall off the dump portion (it’s removable) and store my Walker 36” mower over the axles when the dump portion isn’t full

I work in Arizona and we pretty much all do grass collection, although next summer I’ll probably add a baffle to my deck and swap blades. See if any clients even notice. Plus it’ll eliminate most of my needs to grab my other trailer when doing cleanups, tree work etc.

Trailer is 2 7k axles with ramps for the dump section stored under. Utility area has a ramp for the mowers.
I currently dump the clippings on burlap sacks and “take it to the dump” sometimes alley dumpsters have grass in them, weird right

Anyways, looking for opinions from guys that have done this, haven’t done it, have considered, or just wanna throw 2 cents my way.

If your worried about tounge weight do some research into a weight distributing hitch and how to properly set one up.
I’m not that worried. I know it’ll be a factor though. Moving my Walker will satisfy my worries. I can weld d rings or whatever tie down loops to secure the mower in the dump portion.

Way overbuilt this when I was in high school. Would change a few things up but over all build idea here worked great for me after I upgraded to a F250
