    Disco towing a Dog Trailer (Caravan)

    You donít see many dog trailer behind cars....Actually Iíve never seen one.

    Might be a more stable platform....reversing would take some practice.

    Yes, the freight companies wanted to carry more freight, employ fewer drivers and buy fewer trucks.

    hmm,, not really. B Doubles were brought in to stop the use of road train trailers that wandered too much for Metro areas.
    same amount of freight, same amount of drivers.

    Not really. B double standard limit 62 tonnes gross, road train 72 tonnes.
    Lots of "road trains" on metro freeways/arterial roads nowadays. Have Long Vehicle signs instead of the road train ones.

    The old CRB (Country Roads Board) used cabins built on dog trailers for their lunch rooms.
