    The place where I work produces the grille fronts for all the Kenworth Trucks on the road.

    PACCAR is our biggest customer.

    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.
