I'm not sure how we pay for wheels. But I am a captain on a pushboat. The wheels on our boats are around 6ft. tall.

I think cabovers are preferred as they're more maneuverable in the confines of older European towns & cities.

Same in Japan.

You can buy one old house with that in Finland.
We get more gargo space with cabovers. Thats why they are used in Europe.

At least here in Germany the total length of a truck is limited.
If it is a truck with a trailer maximum length without a special permission is 18.75 meter.
If you have a semi trailer it's 16.50 meter.

Should be the same all over Europe.

That's why we use the shorter cabover trucks to get more usable cargo length.

I did for 13 years, those would ride worse than cabovers since you could not have an airseat to absorb bumps

I wasn't think so much about the ride as I was thinking about trying to see from the basement.

They were doing really well with that Dodge till they put a car roofline on it.

Throws the whole thing off (for me)

Excellent! A remake/modernized Jeep FC-150.




40+ years ago we did an R&R on an old rack body FC-150. We then used it to build a log home in the Catskills. It carried the entire the entire kit up a pretty crappy road.
