With the plethora of options out there, zeroing in on the best fit can be overwhelming. But don’t fret! we have meticulously combed through the details to give you an in-depth guide that’ll ease your hunt. In this post, we’re going to dive into:

  • Key features to look for in a 5×8 dump trailer
  • Benefits of choosing a single 5,000-pound axle
  • Maintenance and care tips to prolong your trailer’s lifespan


Essential Features to Consider in a 5×8 Dump Trailer

Embarking on the journey to find the perfect trailer can be both exciting and a tad overwhelming, especially when we’re dealing with so many specifications. But not to worry! I’m here to light up the path. Let’s delve into the crucial features that one should consider when buying a 5×8 dump trailer, especially the magnificent Bwise DTR508LP-5.

Frame and Build: One of the first things you’d want to check out is the frame of the trailer. The Bwise model we’re discussing has a robust steel frame. This ensures durability and longevity, providing you with a reliable trailer that can withstand various conditions and demands.

Dimensions: A trailer’s size is pivotal! For our Bwise model, the width is 60″, the length is 8′, and the inside height is a comfy 15″. This gives you ample space for your dumping needs without being overly bulky.

  • Color and Aesthetics: Though it might seem trivial, the look of your trailer does matter! Our Bwise is sleek in black, ensuring not only functionality but also a touch of elegance on the road. Other color options are available upon request.
  • Weight and Capacity: Always keep an eye out on the weight specifications. The GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) for our star trailer is 5,000 lbs. The empty weight stands at 1,270 lbs., giving it a payload of 3,730 lbs. This tells you how much load it can carry without stressing the axle or compromising safety.
  • Axle Capacity: Speaking of axle, our Bwise model has an axle capacity of 5,200 lbs. This indicates the maximum weight the axle can handle. It’s always good to have an axle capacity that’s a bit more than your expected load, offering that extra peace of mind.

Gate and Ramp Design: An integral feature of a dump trailer is its gate or ramp. The Bwise model boasts a 2-Way One Piece Gate, offering flexibility in loading and unloading materials. This can be a game-changer, especially if you’re looking to move different types of loads.

Hitch Type: Another aspect to consider is the hitch type. The Bwise DTR508LP-5 comes with a Bumper Pull. This type of hitch is straightforward to connect, making it user-friendly for all, whether you’re a seasoned trailer enthusiast or just starting out!

Every detail, big or small, plays its part in ensuring you have the best trailering experience. Happy trailer hunting!

The Magic Behind a Single 5,000-Pound Axle

Oh, the wonders of a trailer’s axle! It may not be the first thing you’d think about, but it’s one of the unsung heroes of a trailer’s design. Let’s delve into the remarkable benefits of choosing a single 5,000-pound axle for your 5×8 dump trailer. Buckle up, it’s going to be a fun and enlightening ride!

Strength and Durability: One might think, “Why not go for multiple axles or perhaps an axle with a greater capacity?” Well, there’s a method to the madness! A single 5,000-pound axle, particularly in the Bwise DTR508LP-5, is constructed with robust materials and engineering finesse. This ensures that it’s not only sturdy but also designed to last. It strikes a balance between toughness and simplicity.

Enhanced Maneuverability: Have you ever tried navigating tight spots with a trailer hitched to your vehicle? With a single axle, making tight turns and navigating through narrow pathways becomes a breeze. It’s less cumbersome than its double-axle counterparts, making your trailer’s movement more fluid and user-friendly.

  • Cost Efficiency: Often, less is more, and in the case of a single axle, this rings true. Having one axle reduces the maintenance cost since there’s only one component to look after. Moreover, single axles are typically cheaper to replace or repair compared to double axles.
  • Weight Savings: The Bwise 5×8 DTR508LP-5, with its single 5,000-pound axle, benefits from weight savings. Fewer axles mean less metal, which translates to a lighter trailer. This can be advantageous when considering fuel efficiency of the towing vehicle and overall ease of use.
  • Optimal for Medium Loads: A 5,000-pound axle is perfectly suited for medium-sized loads. It provides ample support without overengineering for the size of the 5×8 trailer. This ensures you get optimal performance tailored for the specific trailer dimensions and design.

Simplified Maintenance: Ah, maintenance! An aspect every trailer owner must consider. With a single axle, the periodic checks, greasing, and maintenance activities are more straightforward. There’s no need to worry about synchronizing multiple axles or the added complexities they bring. Simplicity is the name of the game here!

Stability and Safety: A well-engineered single axle, like the one in our beloved Bwise model, offers stability on the road. It reduces the chances of fishtailing, ensuring a smoother and safer journey. Plus, with a balanced load distribution and proper tire inflation, you’ve got a trailer that behaves impeccably on the highways and backroads alike.

In wrapping up, the choice of an axle isn’t just about numbers. It’s about the synergy between design, function, and user experience. So next time you’re admiring a 5×8 dump trailer, give a nod to the humble axle beneath it, supporting all those loads with grace and endurance.

Maintenance and Care Tips to Prolong Your Trailer’s Lifespan

Keeping that shiny new 5×8 dump trailer in tip-top shape is no rocket science, but it certainly requires attention and love. Here, we’ll delve into some essential maintenance tips that not only ensure the long life of your trailer but also make sure it remains a dependable workhorse for all your hauling needs. Let’s get those sleeves rolled up!

  • Regular Inspections: Set a routine, whether monthly or bi-monthly, to give your trailer a comprehensive once-over. Check for any signs of wear and tear, especially around the axle and frame.
  • Cleanliness is Key: A clean trailer isn’t just about aesthetics. Regular cleaning prevents the build-up of dirt and grime that could lead to rust. Don’t forget those hidden nooks and crannies!
  • Lubrication: All moving parts, especially the axle and hitch, need regular lubrication. This will ensure smooth operations and reduce the chances of premature wear.
  • Brake Checks: The braking system is vital for your safety. Periodic checks and adjustments will keep them functioning optimally.
  • Tire Care: Check the tire pressure, wear patterns, and overall condition. Remember, under-inflated or worn-out tires are a safety hazard!
  • Electrical Systems: Ensure all lights, indicators, and wiring are in perfect working condition. It’s not just about safety, but also about avoiding any potential fines on the road.

Dumping Trailer 5x8



Buying a Trailer - This is everything you need to know - FAQs

Yes, the inventory listed on our website is up-to-date and accurate. If you see a trailer listed on our website, then it is most likely on our lot. You can check the top of each listing to see how many of each model we have in stock (as seen in the video above).

On a rare occasion, we will have more than one person attempting to reserve a trailer at the same time.  It is a good idea to reserve the trailer you want by placing a down payment through the website, especially if it is the last one in stock. This will ensure that the trailer is held for you and the unit will be ready for you to pick up at your convenience.


Yes. If our manufacturers make something that we do not have in stock, we will gladly order it for you.

In most cases lead time is 1 to 8 weeks.

If the manufacturer needs to start the manufacturing process from scratch, it will typically take them eight weeks to complete the build and have it ready for you on our lot. However, if they have a unit already in the manufacturing process, which can be customized for you, it is possible to have it ready in as little as one week.

If we do not have the color you are looking for, we can get it so long as the manufacturer offers that color option. At any given time, we may have hundreds of trailers on order, being manufactured. If the model you are looking for is already being built, we can have it painted in the color of your choice, or we can build one from scratch in approximately eight weeks if we don’t have one currently on order.

 All fees and taxes paid are passed on to the state/county with the exception of the $199 Document fee. 

Out-of-State Customers
Since you are out of state, we can’t do your titling and so we can’t charge you sales tax. You will receive a signed bill of sale and the Certificate of Origin here which will allow you to apply for title and registration in your home state and that is where you would pay your sales tax.

Your out-the-door cost here will only include:

  • Our document fee $199
  • Pennsylvania’s $1 per tire tax ($1 x #tires on trailer)
  • Optional 60 day temporary tag $60.

Your total out-the-door cost on a trailer with 4 tires will just be $263 over the price of the trailer.

Let’s look at an example. In the example below we can see that the price of this trailer is $9,000. It has 4 tires.
For an out-of-state customer the “out-the-door price” would be $9,263.

The Out-of-state Formula = Cash Price + $259+$1 x # of tires
Out the door example

Pennsylvania Customers

If you are a Pennsylvania resident, you will use the same formula to calculate your out-the-door price, but you will also need to add Pennsylvania state sales tax, title fee, and registration fee to the total. These fees can vary based on the trailer you purchase. If the trailer is financed then there is also an additional lien fee. Below are details regarding the title fee, lien fee, and registration fees.

Title fee = $67

Lien Fee (if financed)= $33

Registration fees for trailers 3,000 GVWR
One Year = $7
Five Year = $35

Registration fees for trailers 3,001 – 10,000 GVWR
One Year = $14
Five Year = $70

Registration fees for trailers 10,001 GVWR and higher
One Year = $43
Permanent  = $210

County Registration fees
The counties below charge and additional $5 per year registration fee in addition to the state’s registration fees above. The $5 would only be charged once on permanent tags.
Allegheny, Beaver, Berks, Blair, Bucks, Butler, Cambria, Centre, Chester, Cumberland, Dauphin, Delaware, Erie, Greene, Lackawanna, Lawrence, Lycoming, Mifflin, Montgomery, Philadelphia, Pike, Schuylkill, Union, Westmoreland, York

Tire Tax
$1 Per Tire including spare

Yes, we offer personal credit loans in a business or personal name through Sheffield Financial, and business credit loans through New Lane Financial. Additionally, those who do NOT want to use their credit can rent-to-own with no credit check. Watch the video above for complete details about all of our financing options.

This depends on which financing option you choose. See below for details.

Sheffield Financial Personal Credit Loans – No down payment is required if pre-qualified for a personal Sheffield Loan

New Lane Financial Commercial Loans – Most of the time NO down-payment is required. On occasion a down-payment is required based on a variety of factors.

Rent-to-Own – If you are considering a rent-to-own option for purchasing a trailer, a down payment will be required. You can use the Rent-to-Own calculator to determine the amount of the down payment required for the trailer you wish to purchase. The video below demonstrates how to use the calculator.

We will hold any trailer on our lot for up to fifteen days with a $500 non-refundable down payment that is deducted from your balance due.

There are three ways to reserve your trailer.

1.) By clicking the “Reserve this trailer button” next to the trailer you want to reserve.

2.) If you received a quote by text or email you can click the link at the bottom of that quote to place your down-payment and reserve the unit.

3.) Or simply give us a call at 717-262-6383

Yes, you have the option to register the trailer under either your personal or business name if you pay for it outright. If you are financing the trailer, you may also register it under either name as long as it is approved by the financing company. However, in some cases the financing company may not allow you to register the trailer under your business name if the financing is under your personal name, or vice-versa.

If purchasing a trailer under a business name, the PA requires us to have a signed letter on company Letterhead authorizing your agent picking up the trailer to sign documentation on behalf of your company for the purchase. This applies even if the person picking up the trailer is the owner.



It is important to discuss this with your salesman prior to sending your driver to pick up the trailer. 
In order to understand the chart below, you must first watch the video above.


For Rent to Own customers, refer to our Rent to Own FAQ

For all other purchases, you will need the following:
• A valid state-issued Photo ID or Driver’s License. PA customers must have an address correction card if the address on the ID is not current.
• Form of payment
• If purchasing a trailer under a business name, you will need a signed letter on company Letterhead authorizing your agent picking up the trailer to sign documentation on behalf of your company for the purchase. This applies even if the person picking up the trailer is the business owner.
• If applicable, tax exemption form or documentation required by a financing arrangement.

Non PA residents will register their new trailer at their local DMV. In order to do so the DMV requires 2 documents, which are the “Bill of Sale” and the “MSO”. We will provide you with both of these documents at the time of purchase. 

In State Residents
As a Pennsylvania resident, if you want to purchase a trailer tax-free, you must send your tax exemption form to your salesperson at least 48 hours before you plan to pick up the trailer. If you do not provide the form at least 48 hours in advance, there is an additional $50 processing fee.

Pa Farm & Mining Exemptions
It is important to note that customers who choose to be tax-exempt for the reason of Farm or Mining, are not able to register a license plate for the trailer.

Out of state customers
Out of state customer do not pay sale tax when purchasing a trailer. In this case sales tax is paid when the customer registers the trailer in their home state.

Pennsylvania residents will receive both registration and a license plate at the time of purchase. Non-Pennsylvania residents, on the other hand, have the option to purchase a 60-day temporary tag, which is $60 and allows them to tow the trailer for 60 days before having to register it at their local Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).

A permanent tag is a tag that never expires. The state of Pennsylvania does offer a permanent tag option for trailers with a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 10,001 lbs or higher. The permanent tag costs $210 and can be transferred once to a different trailer, in the future, for a transfer fee of $9.

Yes, Pennsylvania does require new trailers to be inspected. Your first years inspection and inspection sticker are included with your purchase.

No. The state does not print a title for the trailer until it is first purchased from the dealership. If you are a resident of Pennsylvania, we will handle the necessary paperwork and submit it to the state on your behalf. You can expect to receive your title in the mail within six weeks. If you are an out of state resident you will be given an MSO. When you take your MSO and bill of sale to your local DMV they will take the MSO and issue a title in your name.

All of the above is assuming that the trailer is NOT being financed. If the trailer is financed, then most often the title is required to go to the financing company which will release it to you once you make your final payment. This is not set in stone as not all financing companies operate the same way.

Yes, we do accept trade-ins at our dealership. However, we like to be upfront with our customers and let them know that in most cases, they can get a higher price for their trailer if they sell it privately rather than trading it in with us. If you do decide to trade in your trailer, our sales team will be happy to see if it is something we would be interested in and provide you with an offer.

Yes, we do offer a cash discount. If you choose to pay with a debit or credit card there is a 3% fee for everything over $5,000.

All of the pricing displayed on our website is our best cash prices. We are a volume-based dealer and put our best prices right up front.

NOTE: if you choose to pay with a check or bank wire, you will also qualify for the cash discount.

Yes, you may split your payment between as many different cards as you wish.

Unfortunately no. Our credit card merchant charges a 3% fee on all credit card transactions. As a courtesy to our customers, we absorb this cost for the first $5,000. However, for any amount over $5,000, the 3% fee will be passed on to the customer, regardless of whether the payment is made with one card or multiple cards.

De-rating a trailer refers to the process of lowering its Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR). This means that the trailer is no longer legally permitted to carry as much weight as it was originally designed to. It’s important to note that the physical structure of the trailer itself is not altered during this process, rather, the change is reflected in the GVWR listed on the trailer’s VIN sticker and title. While the trailer may still be capable of carrying its original weight, it is illegal to do so once it has been de-rated.

$250. This price includes the cost of the replacement MSO and VIN sticker.

This will depend on the manufacturer. Some manufacturers such as Bwise allow re-rating the GVWR of a trailer after titling, but many of our other manufacturers, such as EBY and BigTex, do not. If the manufacturer permits re-rating the GVWR of your trailer, there is some paperwork you will need to file with the state as well as accompanying fees. Anyone on our trailer sales team will be happy to advise you on your options for your particular trailer.

GVWR stands for Gross Vehicle Weight Rating and represents the maximum weight a trailer is designed to carry, including the trailer’s own weight and the weight of any cargo. It is determined by the manufacturer and can be found on the trailer’s VIN Sticker, which is usually located on the tongue or front of the trailer.

Payload is the weight of the cargo and any additional equipment that a trailer can legally carry. It is calculated by subtracting the trailer’s “empty weight” from the GVWR. For example, if a vehicle has a GVWR of 10,000 pounds, and an empty weight of 3,000 pounds, then its payload capacity would be 7,000 pounds.

If your trailer has the adjustable channel coupler and you wish to have a pintle ring instead of the ball coupler, we will gladly swap it out for you at no charge. If your trailer has a welded on coupler, we can modify it in our shop and your salesperson can give you pricing on that.

Some do, and some do not. Each listing will specify if the spare is included in the “Options” tab. If the unit DOES include a spare tire, then it will say so in the options section as seen in the example image below.

spare tire answer

In most cases we can have the manufacturer print a replacement MSO for trailers we have sold. The cost is $250. Contact our trailer sales team to begin the process.

When all of the paperwork is prepared in advance, and payment has been made by cash, check, wire, or card, the checkout process takes only 15-30 minutes.

Financed deals, Rent to own deals, and tax-exempt deals typically take longer to process- around 45 min-1.5 hours

Businesss Hours

Yes, we do offer delivery through some third-party shippers. Delivery service starts at $3.70 a mile one way, plus a $50 prep fee. There may be other costs we incur depending on the trailer’s destination and region through which it travels. Contact our trailer sales team for a quote on delivery to your location.

To determine if your truck is strong enough to tow the trailer you want, you need to verify that the “Towing Capacity” of your vehicle is greater than or equal to the GVWR of the trailer you are looking to purchase.

This can be a difficult question because so many variables are involved, such as your bed size, engine, transmission, trim package, and whether you drive a 4×4 or 2×4 truck. All these things can affect your towing capacity.

For a general idea, you can do a google search just like you see in the example image below, but insert the year, make, and model of your vehicle. The best way to know for certain is to check your owner’s manual or call your local dealer, give them the VIN#, and they can let you know exactly.

google tow capasity

The DOT requires manufacturers to equip any trailers over 3,000# GVWR with brakes.

If your trailer has brakes, your vehicle needs to have a brake controller to actuate the trailer brakes.

Some newer model vehicles are equipped with OEM brake controllers from the factory. If your vehicle does not have a factory trailer brake controller, we carry a variety of options in stock and our shop technicians install them routinely. Your salesperson can assist you in verifying if you need to have a brake controller installed, and availability and pricing for installation on your particular vehicle.

Trailers with brakes can be pulled without a brake controller because the brakes will just freewheel without a controller to actuate them, HOWEVER,  DOING SO WILL INCREASE YOUR RISK OF AN ACCIDENT AND ACCOMPANYING LIABILITY.

Absolutely! We carry brake controllers and installation kits for most vehicles and in many cases, our shop can install a brake controller on your vehicle while we complete the paperwork for your new trailer. Your salesperson can assist you in obtaining availability and pricing on a brake controller installation on your particular vehicle.
