The axle setup of a spread axle trailer is not just randomly picked. It really has a purpose and it all is related to weight. Commonly this axle configuration is mostly found on flatbeds, car haulers and refrigerated trailers and typical for the US. The more tires means more rubber equals more friction. To reduce the drawback of it when it comes to playability the most rear axle is liftable.
It has an all aluminum floor installed with two nailer strips. So it is outlined with the decks frame which also holds the "winches" and retroreflective strips. From the outline in two rows of Plates, two lines of Tan colored nailers are followed by Black Tiles to represent the trailers main beams. In the middle there is this last strip of Plates as aluminum floor.
In order to connect and disconnect this semi-trailer to or from a semi-truck it has a landing gear. The trailer's front end can be raised or lowered to make it aligned with the tractor's fifth wheel. Whenever the landing gear is down the parking brake is engaged as well. Lifting the landing gear the parking break will be released.
Alternating Red and White retroreflective strips are replicated by adding Red and White plates. In between every set plate with handle is located to tie down the load with the use of Chains any kind of rubber band. Finally running lights are installed on both sides of this trailer. By adding all these details it really breaks the color and the looks of this trailer model.
