Nice handy trailer but I'd rather pick wood off a trailer and stack it in the shed rather than have to pick it up off the ground to stack it.

You might re-think that after hopping up and down off that trailer a few times getting at the stuff in front...

Don't need to hop on and off of the trailer. My wood is stored in the house basment, and I have a dump trailer. I tip it up about 2/3s of the way, set the wood chute up and stand at the back of the trailer and unload it. as you get the wood out, the rest of it just slides down to meet you. I have not had to climb on that trailer to unload wood for 10 years.

I put it on a trailer thats low enough and narrow enough to get to the wood without having to climb in it.Also a lower trailer makes it easier to load in the first place unless I'm using a loader at which point it might make more sense just to transport with the loader to the house if its close enough.

A lower trailer will get hung up on anything that looks like a stump when it's being draged through the woods. The frame being a little higher is a plus. Looks like a helper is ready to stack while the boss goes out to pickup another load. Damn good looking rig!

All true, but if what you have to work with is THAT trailer, dumping it makes sense to me.
