A trailer truck is a road vehicle from the from the heavy goods vehicle family. It is made of a rigid and a trailer attached to it.
Trailer trucks are long vehicles with numerous axles. In the UK, an articulated vehicle made of a truck and a trailer can measure up to 18.75m and carry up to 40 tonnes. Mega-trucks, that can reach 25m long and carry a load of 60 tonnes, are not allowed in Europe, except if granted a national dispensation. Road trains in Australia and in the USA reach even longer lengths but the road network is designed for their sizes.
The bodyworks of trailer trucks are as varied as those for trucks: tautliner, livestock, flatbed… It may be noted that the trailer’s bodywork can be different than the truck’s bodywork, even if we usually see identical bodyworks on a trailer truck.
