    I had this trailer built so i could move most of my snow equipment in one shot. The upper deck's back section is hydraulic so when i need to move my 10' Artic it's not a problem. The open section in front of the dump is 5' long, for the vbox, with pallet fork storage on either side. The dump is 14' long and both sides open for so its easier to secure the skid steer. There is storage for load binders, spare tire, and chains under the dump box. There are seperate pumps and batteries for the deck and dump box. The front part of the box has u channel welded 2' from the front so i can slide some 2x 10's and haul some salt and keep it seperate from the skid steer. I fiqured that if i was going to by a new trailer i wanted something that fit all my needs.

    Pretty innovative trailer... But the last thing I'd be doing is hauling salt with it...

    Grandview pm me, and Triple L,,,, I'm considering rhino lining the dump box. What do ya think?? Either way, the bottom line is its a piece of equipment. I appreciate the great replies. Thanks. I'll post some more pics next week with it loaded. It weighs 7000lbs

    Dang that's a nice trailer. If it weighs 7k empty, then you can only haul 7k of cargo?

    NO,,,its got two 8000LB axles so a little over 9000 of cargo. With the skid loader the Artic and the vbox it will be over by about 500 lbs. I'll take that risk considering my area.

    Right on. I'm not sure how they rate it, but I would think some of the weight transfers to the truck also, so you can maybe add another 1k or more onto that also?

    What do you have for a hitch setup on the truckside and where did you mount your electrical plug in the bed? I'm looking to put a fifth wheel setup in my 06 once the season gets going. Trailer looks great!

    Your trailer does look great Dean... Just typically trailers have the worst paint job on the planet and I know 2 years of just driving one in the salt sure beat myn up good let alone having salt in it... Hopefully his has the super good paint job!
