Those are some good shots Jim. Let us know how they handle on P&D. Do you know if there are any vans coming in?

Jimmy, did you notice inside the difference in the E-track?  Most all of the Roadway pups, and the Yellow pups from 12800 and newer, the track was 16" apart.  Now on the Stroughton's they are 24" apart.  Some of you may or may not know that the industry standard for pallets is 48"x 40".  With E-track, double stacking pallets in a trailer, turning the pallet on the 40" side, and 16" spaced E-track, you will support your pallet with 3 deck bars. With 24" E-track, you only have 2 bars under the skid.  It will work, but 3 is better.  Sometimes, with freight shifting, pallets will fall over with only 2 bars.  Plus, pins on the bars get bent, and you can have a mess.

Big L, sorry it took a while to get back to you on this, my mother got sick on the 10th. After work on Wednesday I drove down to Mountain View where she was in the hospital. She passed away Thursday afternoon just got back to town.

Yes, the 16 inch centers is much better than the 24 inch centers with the A track, maybe the next order they'll make the change.
Here are two more I spotted today:

YRC Freight # 132041:


YRC Freight # 132047:


I should ask Rob to move this to where I should have posted it in the first place, the LTL Trailer topic area.

Sorry to hear about your mom Jim.  :(

Interesting info on the deck bars.  Sure is a lot of stuff that goes into the trailer other than simply loading it with freight.
The foot turned to the horse, the horse to the carriage, the carriage to the train, and the train to the truck.

Thanks so much for your condolences all. We, the 3 sons, were so fortunate to have her as our mom. Because it all happened so quickly it too was a bit of luck that all of us could be there to lovingly support her as she passed from this life. She left this world with the 3 of us at her bedside. Again, thank you.
