I am fairly new roofer and i am looking to purchase a dump truck. I have done all the math and considered a dump trailer and found a dump truck was my best option. I was just curious on what size bodies were most effective for the truck for instance backing it into a tight spot or hauling a lot of shingles. My thoughts are a f450 with a 14 foot landscape or rack body on it with about 4 foot high sides. I feel like a 9 foot body is too small and a 16 foot body is to big. I dont want it to be too long because i will be pulling a 7x16 enclosed trailer with it and with that big of a body it can be tricky to get into driveways. I was wondering what most guys have when they run dump trucks and their thoughts on it. About how many squares can a truck like that hold?
