Looking at a mid 90's Wilson Convert-A-Hauler Grain hopper that switches back and forth between a flat floor and grain hopper. Don't really know much about these trailers and haven't actually seen it in person yet. We would primarily be using it as a grain trailer.

Does anyone have any experience with them? Are they any good? One thing I noticed from the pictures was that it looks like there are 4 trap openers. Do they actually have 4 seperate traps that need to be opened each time you unload? Seem like that would be a real drawback....

Any info would be appreciated.

Really don't think you want that. The only purpose for those trailers are to haul grain to a port and back haul cargo off an other ship. A buddy had one to do just that, no roll tarp, all manual, manual shoots and not a full hopper. Still had to get in and shovel the flat edges to middle. Better off getting 2 trailers if you need a flat deck too.

I use to hate the sight of those things if a load of fertilizer showed up on one. There are all kinds of places where material hangs up in them and needs to be swept off. The worst thing is, because the multiple hoppers only go up to the floor level, when you move the truck, some product will always cascade into the hatch that you already cleaned out. Probably the last thing in the world you would want to haul grain in unless it was just for a back haul rate in conjunction with something a lot more profitable.
