BREAKING CHANGE

In version 1.0.50 the "A-Double" for high-saddle was re-modeled. Both A-Doubles can now drop their rear rails through controls.

High-Saddle compatible trailers with 6/8/10-slot capacity and a low-saddle 4/8-slot: packable 2/3/4/5-slots on lower level and loose 3/4/5-slots on upper level. Double decker style. Can be configured as a road-train with extension trailers.

Note, only the "universal" trailer (or the pup) can be attached to other trailers.

Other mods in this collection:


Theoretically you could have an infinite number of trailers in the train.

Practically you can only have two. But you still have your winch for normal use, so that's good.

⚠ GAME LIMITATION WORKAROUNDS

For greatest enjoyment please use within limits of the game:

  • a train longer than two trailers will not work as it will not move: the end trailer has inactive physics (second image below).

Please note: the extension trailers will "pop-out" of their socket when the hitch-angle is too great: just be conscious of this and everything will work out. If this happens to you when you're out on a delivery, usually just using the front trailer's winch sockets (at top of trailer) is sufficient to re-seat the "pin" in "hitch".

MAKE A TRAIN

NOTE: A train longer than two trailers will not work as it will not move: the end trailer has inactive physics.

Attach an "universal" extension trailer to a trailer in front of it.

Winch the rear trailer's "pin" into the front trailer's "hitch". Alternatively use a crane. Make sure the extension trailer's feet are up.

Can use a support truck crane or the winch points at top of front trailer.

  1. "TRAILER CONTROL" => "HITCH" to the "out" position
  2. winch the trailer's "pin" into the "hitch"
  3. wiggle it in with the truck
  4. make sure the "pin" drops down
  5. "TRAILER CONTROLS" => "HITCH" to the "in" position

OPERATE "UNIVERSAL" EXTENSION TRAILER

The high-saddle "main" trailer and the "universal" trailers have same features.

Both are high-saddle compatible and all features are operated when connected to a truck.

The "universal" extension trailers sit a bit higher but can also be attached to other trailers.

To move a "universal" extension trailer from truck to a hitch on another trailer, use a crane -- make sure the extension trailer's feet are up:

"Warning Unknown problem" pop-up
When attempting to load or pack long logs onto 5 slot, tried manually loading with three logs but wouldn't pack either.
Problem solving attempt: Tried to detach and attach trailer, to no avail, issue still persists.

MS
MrSkladak @mrskladak

Swooz777, I have a different set of trailers for long logs that I use, please check those out. This 5/10 slot won't pack logs.

MrSkladak i have a suggestion with your trailers.. can you make a trailer pack with this one and the log trailers and the pup trailers all in one???

MS
MrSkladak @mrskladak

I wondered about that. Is there a benefit to bundles? I think for me it might be harder to manage if I need to update.

Javeman21 @dlarsen1964

MrSkladak @mrskladak

Heh, indeed, not sure why that is. It's the one cargo that does this I think.

You have to repair the legs of the trailer, if you detach it from the truck the legs do not work, when towing the trailer of the truck you need a crane, can it be repaired please?

XC
XboxCharles @mononclecharles

You have to lower the legs manually before detaching.

MS
MrSkladak @mrskladak

Yup, the landing gear is manual on all the B-Doubles.

Otherwise the landing gear would drag when you try to connect two trailers together.

Use the 4-slot A-Double is you want automatic landing gear.

MS
MrSkladak @mrskladak

BTW, fun fact, if it's got a bunch of traffic cones on the neck, it's a manual controlled landing gear.

The traffic cones are an attempt to prevent driving up on top of the hitch and trying to attach from the bottom, which would lead to a catastrophic truck launch into the air.

XC
XboxCharles @mononclecharles

Was wondering what those were for.

RU
russg40 @russg40

I’ve noticed on the 5 slot step deck double decker that the orange cones interfere with the 5th wheel when moving to another map causing the trailer to ride at an angle, so you have to detach and re attach for it to pop out.

MS
MrSkladak @mrskladak

russg40, I couldn't repro... will be on a lookout. Thanks.

russg40 @russg40

Ok, strange. Thanks. Merry Christmas, hope you all have a good one. :)

Is it not possible to pack 2 layers of cargo on a trailer on top of each other without needing another deck by changing addonslots initialoffset second set of numbers to 2.517 in the xml file?

MS
MrSkladak @mrskladak

Interesting, not sure. Might try it. Thanks.

XC
XboxCharles @mononclecharles

It's in one of the guides on this site. The only problem is the added weight packed cargo is, in some instances, a lot heavier.
