Thanks for the chart. This will go with my other useful stuff when I'm on the road.

After my little incident of the wind lifting my trailer off the ground I felt this is a good time to remind drivers of what's suggested. Also, regardless what chart says If you don't feel comfortable park it!

The wind affects us flatbedders a little differently,

Like this Turtle?

Bump. 50-60 mph gusts in the eastern half of Pa tomorrow. Checkers anyone?

I just downloaded this from my driver portal.

It’s coming to you from chicago. It has been miserable all day over here. I weighed out at 79900 and it was blowing me around. After 5 hours of that little workout my wrists hurt like crazy...

And not in a dry-van? Dang.

No this tank is a little more aero dynamic. A driver was complaining on the cb how he was having so much trouble pulling a box with a FL lightweight. He was not a happy camper...I was very glad to get stopped for the day

I hear you. After fighting it all day from MA to NY, my wrists and forearms are killing me. And a couple of times, I almost needed fresh underwear.

This is good info. I'm sitting here just outside Albuquerque with an empty trailer. I have 4 hours to drive tomorrow morning ( to south of amarillo) to pick up, and I'm really not sure if it's a good idea or not with 30-40 mph winds in the morning, increasing in the afternoon and gusts of 50+. I'm considering wind direction and trying to justify going ahead, but this is a tough decision.

It was windy on I-5 between Bakersfield and Sacramento today. I was load pretty heavy, 32,000. I was heading North and the wind was coming out of the West. The gusts rocked me pretty good. Glad I am parked for the day!
