Make that dump bed a 3-way tipper like a Unimog and you got something! ;)

Cant think that the mini-GN front is worth the extra steel weight.

I thought about an aardvark really really hard when I upgraded trailers. To me they are pretty cool looking! However I just couldn't justify the extra weight and cost. I want to say the version I was looking at was around 3200lbs!

The Pequea T200 20' tilt trailer that I am looking at with 7k axles specs at 3800 so I guess 3200 is not really that heavy for a all in 1 fairly large trailer

The only issue I see is the weight distribution. If you're hauling dirt/mulch in the dump, and something lighter up front, no issues. If you were trying to haul a tractor, you'd have some serious tongue weight.

Neat idea though.

That's a cool looking trailer. :) But yeah I don't think it's worth the extra weight either.

Saw a few of those wagons around with the funny looking front frame. Does anybody know what the purpose of that is? Nothing comes to mind that would make it any better than a straight frame particularly through that area. I'm agreeing with the other people here. I don't think it would be worth the weight and cost of materials to have it.
