Those trucks can carry much more then that
Not really. The payload for these double trailers is 33,935 lbs and loaded weight is 65,100 lbs which is around 33 tons total. This info is from the "The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Comprehensive Truck Size and Weight Study".
Here's the link to it. http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/reports/tswstud ... apter3.pdf
So the numbers are actually correct. I have them a little higher than what's in the report. I thought they'd haul more too but obviously not. And the companies of these trucks only carry light weight packages here in the US as from what info I found on them. I wanted to put them at 15 tons per trailer but the total weight would be too high then. There is an 80,000 lb limit here in the US so if it was 15 per trailer plus the curb weight which is 14 tons, that would be 44 tons which is overweight here in the US.
Thanks for the compliments on them. I hoped they'd go over well. I put a lot of work into them. But I forgot to include Strongbow in the credits above for his help in making them look good. I did put him in the readme.txt tho. I'll add it now. Thanks again Strongbow. You were a great help with these.
