    There was a thread about this, on here, about a year ago. I am trying to remember. I can't think of the guy's name, right now, but he was from Canada...I believe it was British Columbia. He had several pictures of the operation. If I remember correctly, he was using Walkers. Front and back gates on the trailer. He would bac-up the rear ramp and through the front of the trailer onto the bed of the truck to dump the load. The front of the trailer was also a gate...the same as the rear of any normal trailer. I suppose that it is just a matter of mechanics and engineering. Do a search, or maybe someone else will come on with the info as they remember it. Good Luck.

    I have seen ONE picture of a trailer with this setup, and the person fabricated it himself. When you say "and dump it" do you want a dump trailer that will accomplish this? Either way you will need to fabricate the setup yourself or find a local fab. shop that will do it for you.
