Hi,

I'm just wondering the overall length of this unit :?

244" wheel base tractor, 48' trailer, 24" king pin on trailer... 70' I am going to say, maybe a whisker under.

I may be wrong but I doubt that's a 48' trailer... maybe 42'. Tankers usually aren't all that long....

I used to haul 75K of milk in a 40' tanker. And the petroleum tankers I pulled were mostly 42'.

I'm ready to be corrected.

Maybe this will shed some light here in NZ our trailers are 43'foot & now we got a 46'foot.i will get some pics two show what i mean I'm hoping to get me a Freight-liner XL Classic i will be towing a 43'foot tanker in behind her.

here's a pic of a 46'footerhttp://www.xtrucking.com/pictures/byrantsk104.htm (http://www.xtrucking.com/pictures/byrantsk104.htm)

and here's one with a 43'footerhttp://www.xtrucking.com/pictures/ws2.htm (http://www.xtrucking.com/pictures/ws2.htm)

Now would that tanker unit be 20mtrs or under?
