Seen this yesterday  8) I think this is the first time I've seen a spread axle container chassis that wasn't a tanktainer chassis.

I'm seeing those pop up more and more now Ray, a lot of them are extendable from 20ft to 40ft. Still haven't gotten a clean shot of one yet but if I had to guess I'd say most are coming out of Baltimore.

That is a private owned chassis. Almost looks like it can have two 20's mounted on there.

Sorry to be late replying to this.
A spread axle wouldn't warrant a second glance from me; that's 1970's or 80's style equipment here.
Aren't extendable chassis capable of 53 foot domestic cans?
Are 20 footers moved by themselves or can they be moved in trains (A trains /doubles)?

It's very rare down here Rob but I've seen 20' can doubles a couple times, they hook a dolly up to the first trailer and connect it to the second. Guessing 1 or both cans are empties though because otherwise they'd be overweight.

Rob, I took this pic a few years ago. Pulling two 20's in Baltimore.
