I actually didn't even notice the tractor, but it was pulling a trailer down I-44 that caught my eye. At first it looked like a spotter/yard tractor with a trailer lifted way up, but the trailer was built like that. Real high in the front, and only one axle at the very back end. The tires looked to be even with the back of the trailer.
It was going the opposite direction, so I didn't have a chance to get a company name or anything.

Anybody have any idea what the purpose is for such a strange trailer?

I like pie!


but seriously, this thread is useless without pics.

its probably a special purpose trailer custom made, or a ramp for Chuck Norris to jump his 1969 Camaro SS over railroad cars while getting road head from a chick. thats all the possibilities i can come up with.

I've seen those types hauling plastic pellets(for molding into plastic grills on autos). There is one parked out front of the Guardian trim plant in Morehead KY(used for advertising the maker of the trailer).

Sounds alot like a mud trailer(drilling mud).The mud trailers are built like that so when dropped from the truck they lay flat on the ground.

I saw an interesting thing yesterday. Some guy had taken the frame and bed of a Ford Pickup, like an old F150. Crudly bent the front of the frame to a point, and welded a trailer hitch to it.

He was towing it with his Dodge Ram.

So he had a pickup, towing the ass end of another pickup. Both beds were loaded down with crap. He made his own trailer out of an old Ford truck. Brilliant!

I guess those things are all over the place around here. Some even find the same model/color as the pulling pickup so that the trailer matches. They make great trailers for going to the dump and feeding round bales to cattle given the proper rack.

I guess so. I see them every day. I knew a guy who made a pop-up camper out of one.

Did it look like this?

Frac Tank

The front end would be lifted up when attached to a tractor.

That's it EOD! I'd never seen anything like that before, in all my 47 years.

IBNT

We had a bunch of them near a contruction site near here. Something to do with water for the site. Company name was "instant rain" or something like that.

Probably "Rain for Rent."

Those types of tank are used for temporary collection or storage of various liquids. They are only filled when on the customer's site and are not transported on the highway while loaded.
