In Topic: What trailer for International Payhauler, dumptrcuk?

15 February 2015 - 07:30 AM

they would be hauled on a "beam" trailer.A beam trailer has no deck,just the frame.the frame would go between the tires and the differentials would sit on the beams so the tires are only a few inches off the ground keeping the load under 13'6"

the axle is a bit too wide,but much worse is the mounting pins,they are off center.put the cab on the frame then center the axle.Some amt axles have spacers that hold the wheel pins,if the freightliner has them you maybe able to elliminate them to tuck the wheels in

you would end up with frame rails and a few chrome bits left over.The bill signs uses different frame ,tanks, stacks and other chrome stuff, will give you about the same left overs plus a little more chrome and bunk.These 2 kits are your basic ROG kit with extras to build each unique model.So the short answer is no
