Those were built like tanks. I never did like the look of them, but they were magnificent machines.

What a missed opportunity.

Center that tube, and a few creative decals, and it would look like you're hauling a small tank around.

I don't think either of those would be under 65' (max legal length for many areas with a standard DL, I think) with a crew cab long bed towing them....

Holy guacamole with salt and cheese Batman, what a beast. Ugly too.
Must be 100 feet long. Can you imagine the turning circle and of course the rear-end swing. Maybe he just uses it to transport long sections of pipe and timber.

I would think you would need a prime mover to haul that thing. Or maybe even a rig like this...... two up front and two behind, plus a spare - simi tractors that is.... (that's me in my little Chevy waiting my turn to use the road).
