    I ran across this. This would be a good way to get more out of a dump truck then just a dump truck. You could even bob tail around without a bed or change to a different bed.

    I lied twice or the dude in the video?

    The guy in the video owns a dealership in Ontario - he is not the manufacturer. N&N trailers are made in Montreal.

    He told 2 little lies in the video. Not a big deal, but if you own the dealership and all you do is sell trailers you should know the product inside and out.
    He made 2 statement's about the trailer that is not true. Since I have been researching them lately, I'm fairly familiar with whats being offered. I spotted them rite away.
    I'm sure it's a quality trailer, I just prefer the truth so I can make a good decision. If he lied twice, what else is he lying about.

    The dealer represents the brand, bad dealer= bad brand.

    You'll be able to find a used 6x10 in texas and your stuff doesn't rust down there. Put 3' sides and you can fit a cord on it. That would be the lightest setup for your f150 which would be a good match. You can find a used one for 3 grand no problem and back that anywhere you need to go. I prefer gravity down bc it doesnt use battery juice but its not a big deal either way. I had a 16ft gooseneck and backed into yards all the time. Never once couldnt fit. I now have a 7x 14 bumper pull and it feels like I'm maneuvering a wheel barrow when backing into spots. wouldn't get a fancy dump trailer and over think it....it will get beat up anyway. Dump Truck is alot more maintenance

    Goosnecks are easier to back up because you can jackknife them a lot more. I considered putting a goosneck set up on my step side but I have never seen a step side pulling a goosneck. PJ trailers offers a power up/down with a third option gravity down to save battery life. I probably wouldn't need to dump more then a few times a day so battery life may never be an issue. A duel battery set should power it up and down at least a dozen times before you lose power. I have hear some do have an emergency gravity down but from what I hear it dumps the hydraulic oil on the ground or in the battery box. Seems to me like it would be a simple thing to wrought the overflow back into the oil tank. All the used ones I have seen so far are as much as new ones. Resale seems good on most any type trailer.

    I have a switch and go system. Can’t find a single thing to hate about it. 46ABE957-E122-4BA7-8F4A-399A6F2E7343.jpeg 46AC21AE-9A80-4350-B285-0D1B629F1260.jpeg 6BD8A3D3-DE39-4490-9A5D-A6A5573C18F5.jpeg 15D61142-0B67-42CE-A421-393026D5FE9D.jpeg B70EAA86-8326-4EE4-8A25-C9CBC96FD83B.jpeg 472B279E-0B02-45B1-9CA2-45B3163B1DEA.jpeg

    I have a 45mpg diesel VW for my daily driver. Makes no sense for me to drive 10-15 mpg trucks unless I need a truck.

    Yeah, I have a 160hp small block.. probably more like 120hp now. Loaded I sit at about 17000lbs. It keeps up with traffic reasonably well.

    How does your 45mpg VW diesel pull your camper? Or your boat? Or haul your construction tools? I get your point that your dump trucks work awesome for your lifestyle but what many people were saying is they already own a pickup and it’s simply not cheaper to purchase a dump truck, nor would it be as reasonable to do so.... we all have different reasons for owning the transportation that we do.

    I have a 10K 6'x10' trailer made by Carry-On. https://www.carry-ontrailer.com/trailers/dump-trailers/ You can get this trailer new for $4500 if you look around. I have made hundreds of deliveries with this trailer. The hydraulic system is great and it has only one hydraulic cylinder, it has power up and power down. It has brakes on two 5k Dexter axles and a spreader gate. I just put 4 new 10 ply tires on it. I prefer the low profile trailers because it's easier to get equipment on like a Bobcat, deck overs are higher so they are harder to get large equipment on. If I were you I would get a 6'x12' 10K trailer and you should be able to get a cord of wood on there without a problem. Get the tallest metal sides you can afford (3' Metal Sides Would Be Perfect), wood sides are ok but if you ever want to haul in logs they break off easy when loading logs with a skid steer. I have dumped 8000# with this setup easily. Once you buy a dump trailer you will open up yourself to being able to pickup logs easily that people want gone and will load for you. Also picking up 4 tons of stone and spreading it if you get a spreader gate is an easy task. Make sure you get one with two doors on the back, one big door is a PIA like I have but I got mine for cheap so I put up with it until I upgrade soon. This trailer and piston setup is great too, I charge it maybe once a month and dump so many loads and it's never dead really hard to believe, I need to count how many loads between charges sometime. My friends with bigger dump trailer that don't charge as they drive always have dead batteries we have to jump. I don't want a dump truck, I can fill my truck with a cord and hand toss it off and fill the dump trailer and dump it. For the driveways I get into a dump truck would never fit or even a dually pickup would never fit. Plus having weighted tags and maintenance on another truck is very expensive, I had two for a while and I thought it sucked...lol. Here I can get a multi-year trailer tag for $90 at the time of registration and never have to pay another registration as long as I own the trailer. I had to back into a city driveway the other day and had 2" clearance on one side and 6" clearance on the other. Typical tight deliveries where I go. I have it on video and you can see it here below.
