    I agree. I rarely quote anything higher than 14' tall.

    I have seen it with my own 2 eyes trust me I'd rather do it on a RGN but I do not have 1, since they're going to Enid, OK I assume routing will be no issue, I wiegh 33500 I should be able to scale it, from the info he's given me they'll load me but unloading is up to us

    I have done it a few times when I was leased to sammons. Tires and wheels were off. And yes you will be higher than 14.4 but I really don't think jd is letting that happen anymore. Or are cracking down on it.

    Understand I do, now yah know you need photos for bragging rights.

    To be predictably honest I would never do it myself and if you put your mind to it I am sure it will be ok.

    Used to run up and down on and off ramps myself if I could, just hate to tall and low bridge combinations. If they route you and give a permit I am sure you will be fine.

    Used to get offers out of Baltimore for the tall loads, even with my trailer at 14 feet it still ended up 15'6" tall. Police escorts, pilot cars just made it even less profitable.

    I think Warren hs been hauling them in step decks here lately.
    Yes they will be top heavy, watch the turns and lane changes.
    I believe you might need T Hooks plus chaining around the axles. use padding as not to damage the paint.

    When unlding you install the tires and then air all the way up and put mini ramps under the tires and lower your air and walk them off the deck or I've heard but not seen the driver just pulls out and they then drive it off the blocks..

    The last pic is from yesterday when I went to pick up my preloaded trailer that had 62" of overhang, needless to say someone came into work and fixed it
