    How hard would it have been to show a video of it on the road? Oh wait 1987, maybe there wasn't cheap video possible Beta.

    Almost 35yo idea and nothing has come of it? Could it have been a bad idea. I’m going with yes! Imagine a major malfunction in a driveline component? Looks like zero access to any of the mechanicals. Also how do you disconnect this rig? I don’t see any landing gear or any device to take the pressure off of the tractor? Looks like a bad idea all the way around.

    Considering where the kingpin is located, it would make for some interesting challenges to turning corners

    Absolutely, the forward overhang can extend into opposing traffic lanes

    In the 1970s Strick developed an under cab truck trailer for red ball

    Also it was tried for vehicle transport rigs

    but the concept works well for extreme long loads requiring a rear steerage unit
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Similar vehicle would be the new Volvo Vera concept. 1:56 video:




    What I believe is an altered Steinwinter also makes an appearance in the 1980s television show The Highwayman. Clip below at the 2:00 mark:



    And here is one in Lego. 0:17 video:

    Bright side; window easier to clean, mirrors easier to adjust.
