looks like an older fruehauf box. Not made anymore.

Looks like it was pretty heavy duty box, probably never built for a single axle application.

These were made by Fruehauf, mostly trailers called "Bathtubs"

They were used in the demolition industry...........Cement Slabs, Big Rocks and stuff like that...

Most of them you can find today will be dented very badly....

There are a couple smaller dumps like that in use here on the Delaware eastern shore. They are used to haul chicken parts from one of the "chicken plants" to the boiler/digester that converts un-inedible and un-marketable chicken parts to protein meal and energy. I did not have my phone with me today - hope to get a photo soon.
