How much will my trailer carry?

The carrying capacity is calculated by taking the GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) and subtracting the empty weight of the trailer. The difference is the carrying capacity / payload of the trailer.

* Example – 10,000 lbs. (GVWR) – minus 2,200lbs. (Empty Weight) = 7,800 lbs. Payload



What is the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR)?

The Gross Vehicle Weight Rating is maximum total weight of the fully loaded trailer including payload. This weight must never be exceeded.



What type of fluid does my U-Dump Trailer utilize?

U-Dump uses regular hydraulic fluid in their pumps. Other fluid such as ATF (Automatic Transmission Fluid) Dextron (Brand) II or III is compatible also. (Do not mix these fluids)
