Canadian Travel Vehicle Information

Was looking up maximum length of vehicle + trailer for Sask and I found this site with info for all the provinces.

Re: Canadian Travel Vehicle Information

I see the triple set up often here in NM. I am on I25 between Albuquerque and the most popular lake in the state (Elephant Butte State Park). We often see these setups on the side of the road. Lots of wrecks involving double tows. They seem to become very aerodynamic.

I don't think the middle piece in the first pic counts as a trailer - if you look at it, it is actually a dolly under the fifth wheel or gooseneck of the horse trailer. It would be just like the dolly under the second and third trailers of a "Road Train," as the Aussies call them. The dolly pictured appears to be a custom unit that has some storage added.

I thought the Aussies ran 5 to 7 trailers, but this episode only had triples. Still, pulling 3 tanks of liquid explosives along a two-lane road through an active bush fire area makes for an exciting ride . . . . . . . .

The scary thing is that there is no road test for double or triple combinations. You answer a few extra multiple-choice questions on your learner's permit exams (mostly on the air brakes), and then take your road test pulling a single semi-trailer. Ask me how I know.

Re: Canadian Travel Vehicle Information

ya first pic counts as a trailer. need to be a semi trailer dolly to count here as part of the other trailer.

Most semi trailers in a row i see up here are B and C trains.

There is also some times 3 short trailers in a row. Truck - trailer - dolly - trailer - dolly - trailer. you DO NOT back these up lol!


Also found this on SGI's site: http://www.sgi.sk.ca/sgi_pub/vehicle_in ... mes.html#1

What is a Motorhome?

A motorhome is a motor vehicle that is designed for personal accommodation. Motorhomes are equipped with one or more permanently attached beds and at least two of the following permanently attached appliances:

A motorhome may be a manufactured unit or a vehicle such as a bus or van that has been converted to a motorhome.
