Sent to me by a friend. No idea myself but looks to be a complete loss of the body:

Friend of mine let someone borrow his (7'x10'?) 2 axle dump trailer. That was what it looked like tho not as bad when he returned it. Load was too heavy to dump so he shoveled out the back half. Tried to dump it again and thats when it all went wrong!    .....Hippy

This is a byproduct of an operator whom either doesn't care about equipment, or is busy doing "other things" than paying attention. I've actually seen this several times with aggregate trailers and there is a reason the side bows are installed as the trailer is much stronger with them incorporated. Once the "splay" starts, there is no stopping it if the hydraulic power continues to be applied.

In days gone by we'd empty the tub and cut the front half, (or so) free from the rear half. Then either graft on a new front section, or replace the box complete. Replacement is the most likely scenario if insurance is involved as the frame does not appear compromised in this example.
