I'm researching dump trailers, and am trying to decide between deckover or low profile 6 x 10.
The trailer is for personal use to haul yard waste to the town yard waste compost facility, loam, gravel and pea stone, and mulch from the local nursery, and to move debris around my yard from all the dead hemlocks on my property for disposal.
I am leaning towards a deckover because i want a narrower trailer for manuvering around in the woods on my trails. My only hesitation is that none of the trailer dealers in my area stock deckover dump trailers, which makes me think there is something i am missing by going against the grain. I would have to custom order a deckover dump trailer.
The town compost site is only 2 miles away, and the nursery is 5 miles, so the negative towing impact is minimal from the higher center of gravity and aerodynamic resistance of the deckover. I have a car hauler for moving my tractor or other equipment, so the equipment loading advantage of the low profile dump is minimized, but not entirely negated.
The deckover has the manuverability benefit, easier loading from the side with the tractor, and the ability to dump better piles of gravel or other material because the higher deck. I also imagine it will have better ground clearance over rough terrain.
My question is, is there anything i'm missing here? I think the deckover is clearly better for my purposes.
Is my use case substantially different from the average dump trailer buyer that i am correct in going with a deckover than a low profile dump? It seems to me that everyone buys the low profile dump trailers.
I am favoring cam superline trailers.
Thanks for any insight you can offer.
