I wouldn't do it differently, I really like how it's set up, it holds a ton of leaves and it was very cost effective!

The yards I do I typically drive in their yards to get the leaves, and this trailer is light enough that I can do it in my 2wd truck and not get stuck or leave ruts.

There is one thing I would change about the dump trailer come to think of it, It is a bit narrow(er) than the average dump trailer because the tires are underneath the bed which i do like but with the tires under it makes the center of gravity much higher so when it's full or has a heavy load and a stump on top of it all it tends to sway if you go too fast.

This is all good to know because I am sure a member is reading this and trying to figure out which way they would like to go with a trailer they are planning on building.
