I do agree with 'ol Mckee.

My old man used to own tractor trailers. If you ever look at the long (48'+) aluminum flatbed trailers - their frames are arched UP in the center. This keeps the frames from bowing down when loaded, as well as prevents *FLEXING* as a loaded trailer is pulled over bumps and wavey pavements.

See, a skiddy bopper weighs approx 7,000# (+ or -). But like I tell our clients when I describe the damage they're going to do to their lawns - "that 7,000 pounds is a small, solid CUBE of iron, unlike a full size pick up where the weight is spread out."

I wish our medium duty had a shorter wheelbase and a shorter dump body.
