I've been contemplating a dump trailer about half seriously as of late. I am between a 5x10, 6x10 or 6x12. I like the size & price of 5x10 for my dumping/material hauling activities as well as easier storing it. I cant/wont go larger than 6x12 as my tow vehicle is an 02 tundra (7200ish tow limit). Once in a blue moon i'd like to be able to trailer the 1025R with FEL & BB or BH. Taking measurements, it sure seems like the 10' trailers are just too small, has anyone done this successfully? If so, would you say you'd be willing to do it 3x in a given year? or is it a once in a pinch and not doing that again?
in regards to the FEL and BB config i think i'd stuff the BB in the bed of the truck & hang the bucket over the front wall of the trailer. I'm not so sure with the BH Config, perhaps pulled in backwards with the bucket stored in the truck bed and the BH turned off to one side.
As i said, this is a very rare occasion, im aware of the CG/length downsides for this setup. one of my neighbors has a 7x14 load trail dump - it is definitely too big for my needs and storage.
