I like it but sometimes it gets stuck at invisible stuff. Wooden bridges are one of them. I had to uninstall it after the last time it got stuck and I had to delete the trailer.

Sometimes I forget I bring down the landing gear in the rear with trailer controls. It's so close to the rear wheels it's sometimes easy to miss. Then the trailer drags and jitters.

I made the trailer and I still sometimes get caught by this.

Maybe this was the problem?

Hey man, not sure if this was intentional or if its because im using a modded truck, but the trailer doesnt actually connect to the truck itself. Which leads it to tip over very easily, it doesnt take the truck with it when it does, which is what led me to believe that it was just being pulled along as if it were winched. Im not exactly sure. Was it not meant to be used as a bumper pull trailer?

MS
MrSkladak @mrskladak

That's strange... I didn't notice it behaving that much different from other trailers but, yes, the hitch is off of its own bone.. it could explain what you saw. What truck? What load?

Jo_l @jo-l

I used it with a few trucks im currently trying out. The Concept XUV, the Baja crew, and the Tenno T21. It tipped on all three. I usually do stack it with a third load of materials though so i suppose i am making it a bit too tall. But it has tipped with just the bottom and upper stacks before, I believe i was hauling wooden planks then.

MS
MrSkladak @mrskladak

Could speed be a factor? The trailer is bouncy. With two stacks on a normal sideboard we probably took more care to not bump the load off. With these we might have a false sense we can go fast because the load is more secure. But in fact these trailers are more top heavy than just stacks on sideboards because the platform has weight.

Also keep in mind the winch points up high if you need to get around a tight spot as well.

Have you tried the heavy semi trailers? Do you find them less tippy? Maybe? Because of the different attachment as you said.

I've been finding all the trailers pretty stable but I drove slow and secure with a winch when I get spooked.

Jo_l @jo-l

I was going pretty slow, but it would always give out on an uneven trail. Only these pull trailers though- Ive tried all the others (afaik) and theyre all very stable. The only other ones ive tipped are the log trailers, but thats because i stacked way too high.. I got the hang of them after some trial and error. They make logging a breeze now =)

I'll try stacking lower and driving slower with these, theyre still far far better than most other pull trailers so im definitely gonna keep them on hand. I love being able to hitch them together. Btw, is it just me or does the game lock them in place when connecting 3 or more to each other? I tried it the other day but i couldnt get them to budge no matter what i did

MS
MrSkladak @mrskladak

So I've been mostly trying in Yukon and the pugs didn't tip for me, but maybe that's not uneven enough. I'll look into it a bit more.

With three trailers what I saw work is winching the first trailer to the second: then the physics work for the third. I don't do this myself too much as I like to have the winch available for getting out of sticky situations. Also, the third trailer will always have an easier chance of getting undone: since I usually drive with first trailer winched to the second one at the hitch (shortest span) to prevent unlocks... but I freely use the winch when I need it for other things.

Ive only tried them in Taymyr so far. I havent gotten around to Yukon yet so i cant compare the two, but there are definitely quite a few bad trails in this region imo. Maybe im just a bad driver? IoI Much appreciated either way mate.

Hm, glad its not just me. Thought i was doing something wrong for a while there or that my game was bugged. I was planning to make a giant road train for ***** n' giggles but once i couldnt get it to work I just stuck to two- much more practical. I always try to winch them together just as a precaution as well, havent had it break off since I found out about that. Really useful =) many thanks for the help

cool! thanks for your hard work! the back of the trailer is very low and will catch rocks and tree roots, I apologize for google translatorм Disk.yandex.ru

MS
MrSkladak @mrskladak

Hmm, true. I adjusted the rear guard up somewhat.

Good day! Will there be trailers for 4-6 slots? Semi-trailers liked

MS
MrSkladak @mrskladak

Just added a 4-slot center-axle version.

MS
MrSkladak @mrskladak

Hello, I've been thinking about it but I'm not sure a center-axle longish trailer will be workable.

I also find chaining three of these little guys together to work well in some situations. Longish trailers can be a pain around bends.

String three trailers together and make sure to have a winch between the first and second trailers: makes the third trailer work in havok.

Welcome to console. Great concept but very tipsy and it really does'nt like Amur. This trailer would definitely benefit from wider axles.

MS
MrSkladak @mrskladak

XboxCharles, widened them all a bit, hope it helps.

XboxCharles @mononclecharles

Will have to wait for recheck to try it, though I wonder with the holidays when that'll be.

MS
MrSkladak @mrskladak

I've been hearing that.. including the logging trailers... will look into it
