Double or Single Trailer?

Recommended Posts

I don't particularly like the average double or the B-Double, however I love the HCT doubles, makes the game that extra bit challenging! 
I find single box trailers boring, however flatbed or heavy cargoes I enjoy to drive :)

I like any type of trailer but If I had to pick, I'd need to go with Double! Why? The sheer length of the doubles makes for a challenge, especially combined with the weight sometimes. Can make for pretty funny hill-starts.

Hello Ricardo Milos, 

 

Single trailers are better for German streets, but double trailers are  looking better. With double trailers it's way harder than with single trailers. In the north the streets are wider, so it's easier to drive with double trailers:D

It all depends on you how fun it is to drive.But for me more  Single
Why?

  • Lighter weight
  • Flexibility in maneuvering.

 

But also Double good
Why?

  • Greater stability;
  • Higher load;
  • It is less likely to be affected by road conditions or weather conditions;

I like to run Nordic doubles over b-doubles, and yes if ever you see someone reversing onto the ferry at Naantali or Kappelskar with a double, chances are it may be me.  Even though Kappelskar is lacking non collision, I back on, I just have to be patient whilst folk come off the boat and let them go by first.

For me, it depends on where I intend to drive.

 

highly populated areas, a single trailer is best because cargo weight is lower and you have more manoeuvrability in situations that require quick reactions, but singles get super boring when that’s all you’ve driven for years.

 

outside of populated areas I will run either a;

b double, because it’s super manoeuvrable and is easy to park once you understand what to do,

a standard double (pup trailer at the rear behind the main trailer) because it’s more challenging to reverse and I find it more fun to drive around Germany and up into Scandinavia or the Baltic region,

a hct because it’s way more challenging, extremely hard to park without having to disconnect and push the dolly wheels straight again, also hcts are a lot of fun to take to the more narrow and winding roads in the south of the map where they are way more challenging to drive.

 

ultimately it’s down to the situation at hand as to which type of trailer to take.

I pretty much enjoy driving any cargo and trailer that brings a challenge. I tend to use my HCT in TMP, drive around and doing deliveries outside the Baltic's area, however it doesn't mean I dislike single trailers. I use them at convoys and when I feel like it 😄

Definitely doubles :) 

You really have to think about how you take sharp turns :) 
And if you forget that your driving a double, well, the doubles well make you remember that for a loong time (Atleast if you get really stuck) :D
