I would have expected a 5th wheel and not a trailer. WOW!
You say it is 50 ft?

Haven't seen yet, DW says it was "big truck" suspect 450 or 550. She would reg. A hauler, let you know. Makes most rigs here small by comparison. Guess Fleetwood and "Govt" trailers started this new genre.

I agree with you yours looks 44' & 2 slides, this box is 4 slides and extends another 4' beyond the the aft roadside slide. I also saw that used '12, this must be a 13 1/2 or 14. Its much longer.

Make that two slides, large LR, normal BR

Holy cow that thing is long! It looks like it should have another axle or two hiding behind the tree.

He pulled out today, what a box! Iggy there are a few Freightliners in the storage area, not for the long one. I did see a Dodge Cummins 2800? Nearby thats also gone. That would be a 3/4 ton on a very large crew cab setup. Make sense?
