Help with buying a Roll Off trailer...

Hey guys, my dad is looking at buying a roll off trailer for his buisness. He has heard from everyone to avoid Benlee trailers and likes the Clement roll offs. Anyways do anyone of you guys have expierence with roll off trailers? If so which brand and why did you like or dislike it?

I like the Dragon ones but I dont see many in this area. Also if you have roll off experience do you like a single or a double trailer? Thanks

If he wants a roll off for his business, he could make more money using a regular roll off truck such as this : http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/96-RO...em290197778034

Truck: 1990 Ford F-250 5.0 EFI, 4x4 , Longbed, 5 speed w/ Hurst shifter, K&N FIPK, Line-X Bed liner, Ford Racing Valve Covers, 2 1/2 in exhaust w/ 4 inch SS tips, A pillar pod filled with Autometer Pro Comp Ultra Lites , Custom switch box w/ 5 switch panel, and more to come

Sorry have to diagree, we need something that can gross 80k and a roll off truck cant do that. I see no benefit in having a roll off truck. Can only carry one, not the weight, three times the price of a trailer, and no better fuel mileage.

When you say roll off trailer, that is inferred you need a big rig. Dont worry we already have plenty of those.
