We go 42-43' x 102" wide by 78"high SUPER CUBE trailers. These have over 2100 cubic feet of capacity and are light enough to haul a load. We haul quite a few lighter products and can usually get up to gross weight with them.

43 foot long... 102 wide... 84 tall... with onboard weight gauge for truck and trailer. There won't be any product that you can't get a full load on. I haul alot of light product (ie. Wheat midds, rice hulls, etc) and I've got this setup and can always get a full legal load on.. if you don't care for the 84 inch tall then it needs to be at least a 78 inch tall.. don't buy anything smaller than a 78 inch..

I agree with all previous posts on their specs as well. We prefer the 43' over the 42' because of the extra big door openings which make a difference with ddgs, plus a little extra space. My preferred trailer is 43x102x84 with all aluminum sub frame and parts where you can with super singles and disc brakes. For a trailer this big, the empty weight is right at 9,000#. We can be almost full with volume and be a full load on weight with wheat midds.
