    What's the best/suitable wheelbase for 8 car trailer (for ex, Sun Valley)?

    I'm seeing tractors with all kinds of wheelbases.

    Cheers

    not sure about the wheel base but the one thing to consider is the distance from the back of the cab/stack to where your fifth wheel will be. you need about 120"

    228 is the shortest possible I think.
