Anyone know what happened to either of these carriers? They look to be related

Hope somebody has an old picture they'll show, but back in the '60's out West, Ringsby had long wheelbase cabovers, with a drome-box filling in the extra room between the trailer and the back of the cabover daycab. Since there was no room left on the frame, they went upstairs like that for their sleeper.

Think they had tandem steer axles, too.

There was an auto carrier here in NJ that ran these.
