    We actually have a lot more COE's than you think @Ozdriver. I seen this truck almost 2 years ago at a truck show in Red Deer. 6 months ago I bought a complete suspension off a guy for my W9 and turns that guy actually rebuilt this truck several years ago. I'm still kicking myself for not pulling the trigger on a '57 KW cabover that came up in the local paper last year.
     
    Ozdriver and Mattflat362 Thank this.

    Kind of diggin on that KW. I have driven a truck with a single trailer that is as long as the max length that the ones in the video are. I was also over max length in several states and pretty much all of Canada when I drove it.

    The B Doubles like in the video can only go to 26 metres or 27 in WA.
    Singles can go max 19m or 20m in WA.
    Road trains 2 trailers 36.5m.
    Roadtrains 3 or 4 trailers 53.5m but they've got some 60m on trial atm
    Edit: forget to set that as reply @Sportster2000

    So what are you normal trailer lengths, just the trailer?

    Our reefer and flat trailers are 45' or sometimes 48'. The first trailer on a B Double is about half that. We don't have 53s like you.

    Only in certain states. My company has 40 foot trailers all the way up to 53 foot. Flats, step decks, and vans mixed in. The main one I pull is a 48 foot step van.
