Im looking to buy a dump trailer and I'm wondering if my truck will be able to handle pulling it. I'm looking at a 7 x 12 dump trailer and my current work horse is a 2009 silverado 4x4 with a 6.0 vortec motor and 6 spd automatic allison transmission. The heaviest of weight it will be pulling will be when the trailer is full of mulch. about how many yards you think it can handle (trailer/truck). im hoping this trailer can hold 8 or more yards of mulch and the truck can handle towing it. I hope not buying a diesel isnt going to bite me in the arse. heres the trailer in question.
