    Hello, I have a choice in getting a dump trailer of a flatdeck equipment trailer for our Plumbing company. We will be hauling a bobcat e35 mini ex and possibly a rental skid steer every once and a while. I have a dump truck, and I will be towing this trailer with a dodge 3500 flatbed. Also I was also pondering getting a 8x10 dump trailer, and getting the flatbed for the mini ex. The reasoning being the 8x10 dump trailer would be that we have some 1/2 tons that would be able tow this unit.

    Let me know what you guys think,
