"OPERTUNITY IS MISSED BY MOST PEOPLE BECAUSE IT IS DRESSED IN OVERALLS AND LOOKS LIKE WORK"  Thomas Edison

 “Life’s journey is not to arrive at the grave safely, in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting ‘Holy shit, what a ride!’

This is another great piece of truck design history. Thanks again, Paul! I can understand why, with the elaborate coupling mechanism, these aren't currently on every highway. The payoff in extra cargo transported would have been eaten up by ongoing repair costs on the mechanisms themselves and the extended coupling/uncoupling time involved. I'd still like to know what the engineers found relating to that right rear tire.

Common sense tells me it was tire scrub . Paul
