What kind of grunt does your u140 have and what is the dimensions and weight of your trailer? Looks well mate :thumbup1:

 

It pulls well drives fully loaded with the chipper on the back not much different to empty. With the trailer on and fully loaded you aren't going any when quickly but you wouldn't want to.

 

The trailer as far as I know was built to be towed by a mog it has air brakes all round personally I would have liked the axles a bit further forward but it hasn't been a problem. it's plated at 10500kg the tipping body is 4.2m long by 1.95m wide so follows the mog well.
