Yeah, G' ~ Probably be tough to pull a set with THAT wheelbase, huh? Wonder if he'd entertain 'this?' I mean, it DOES MATCH his Western Star & all.... yes ?!? confused.gif confused.gif

And we REALLY need a thread on trailers, (G'Town!) ... because..WHY is this called a TriAxle and not a Quad? Is one a Tag Axle, and I don't see it?!?!? These are the 'big boys' like Ruan pulls; isn't this mostly LPG.. or ?!?!?

I'm easily amused on the sidelines; don't mind me! A 'trailer' thread SURE WOULD be educational, though...G'Town! {wink wink!}

Yes! I second the request for a trailer thread! I was so confused when I started, and was winging it while digging for more information. It might be entertaining to add it to my unreasonably large database of knowledge that is "useless right now, but I COULD use it in the future!" Is it possible to be a hoarder of knowledge? My brain is kind of cluttered!

Anne, that trailer has 4 axles because the extra weight is needed to keep the trailer on the ground when they haul helium. Lol

Similar to what we pull.

Not sure who calls them tri axles, we use quad for those rigs and tri for our three axle trailers. What’s funny though, while this is a big trailer in the states, in Canada, I’ve seen six axles under lp trailers.

That rig above is over 50k empty.

BK, you must be thinking sailboat fuel~!

Countryside trailers calls this a 'tri axle,' but I'm thinking from AndHe's pics/post (MAN, Crossett is BAD ARSKE, Kudos!) the axle NEAREST to the 5th wheel may inDEED be a tag axle.

And yessir, this indeed is an LPG tank, as well. Sheesh, I don't even have my CDL yet, and I'm reaching for the stars, haha!

I've always LOVED the 'tank life' .. but then again, that's all I trained in. I sure loved the added visibility, between the rear window in the daycab, and the 'non square/obtrusive' box following, haha!

ps: Andhe78, does Crossett hire in Ohio ?!?!?!? ~V~

The rear most axle on that gas trailer is the lift axle. I see a lot of this setup on livestock trailers, too.

Lift Axle:

An air-powered axle that may be raised or lowered to the ground to provide greater load-carrying capacity or to comply with axle weight requirements

Thanks, Pack! Okay, that makes sense.

It still 'looks' like the 1st of the 4 on Andhe's trailer is a tag axle; no? What's the difference, anyway?

MAYBE YOU SHOULD (if G'Town is not gonna!) start a thread on trailers? NaeNae is in, too. We really need one....where we can all ask, show what we have (or thought we did, haha) and contribute!

I saw some 'double hopper bottom' set ... yes, SET , awhile back; but didn't get the company name. It started with a 'B.' What the heck is that, and who pulls those, what do they haul?

We need a thread....jsyk !

I can contribute…

I’d rather start a thread on daycabs though.
