If you are thinking "Say... that looks like it used to be a truck!", you are correct.

I bet it would be a monster to back into a dock with a loaded trailer. Surely it can't turn very well.

I wouldn't want to be the driver having to spot that contraption manually to build a set of doubles.  One gnarly looking piece of ... :huh:    Equipment.

It's used by a mini-storage facility to move the old Fruehauf trailer they have on site a couple of times a year so that they can mow the grass around it. Basically it only needs to go back and forth, but you can still see a few gouge marks where the dolly got a little squirrelly. :rolleyes:

LOL I was wondering what brave Super trucker would take that on the highway! Complete with Bias ply skins.  Nice subject for a modeling project. Are you going to tackle this one ? :)

I'm thinking about it. I've got enough spare truck frames and axles laying around...

Unless it ends up as part of a scrap load on a trailer or part of a diorama. Either of which are possible...
