Or a dump trailer. :)

 

Back when I was a kid all the bull racks around here were being pulled with cabovers. Mostly Internationals or Petes with a few KW 123's scattered in. :lol:

Maybe these will give you some ideas.

 

With GMC Astro/95:

With Chevrolet Titan/90:

Ok, so those are sort of the same truck!  It'll look good behind whatever you decided to put in front of it.  Maybe the Peterbilt 352.

Like everyone else I say go with the cabover. In the days that this rig was on the road they were almost always pulled by cabovers. I agree a new one would be nice, but i don't see it happening.

I'd go with a kw. Stretched out. Conventional or cabover works but Up my way the Spencer's pull cattle in old w900a's.

They run sharp units.

Everyone uses conventionals today, but back in the day of the 40' trailer, represented by the trailer Gard built, were almost always pulled by cabovers.

Thanks, Gard.

 

A KW COE would be very "period correct" for the Wilson trailer.
