Of course there are two articulation points, it is what we call a B double, other countries use the term B train. Prime mover, semi trailer, with a second semi trailer down the back.

Trailers are mounted very close to comply with our strict overall length laws, but there is enough clearance.

Lots of trucks in my family. I'll start with my first truck and trailer a 1988 Kenworth.



And me learning how to wheelie with it.
