    It looks like a little miniature truck!

    This looks like an publicity shot from the annual report. Nicely done :)

    Note the trailer tandems slid waaaaayyyy forward to comply with Cali overall length laws.

    Thanks Bravo Six Niner Delta! I didn't realize that this is why those wheels are so far forward. I would have thought it had to do with weight distribution in such a long trailer.

    Moving the axle does redistribute the weight, but weight is rarely a problem hauling a load of packages. Getting caught being overlength in California is usually a big problem, though! :)

    Thanks for the info B69D! My commercial driving days never got beyond buses, so all this stuff with trailer weights and combinations is new to me. Although certainly possible to get overweight on a bus, we never went through weigh stations!
