    51'6" + 1'6" = 53'
    This was a popular reefer trailer size in Canada for years.

    Pretty sure 57’ is what’s allowed and only in some states here in the 48…

    I had to search this, because it’s already easy enough to be overweight with a 53’. Sure enough. It’s a tri-axle 60 footer. I figured there had to be a specific tandem configuration for them.

    I don’t know. Look at turnpike doubles and triples. They’re 2 X 45’-53’ and 3 X 28.5’, depending where you live. Rocky Mountain doubles are a 45’-48’, with a 28.5’ behind the first.
