COE trucks were certainly one way of increasing the available space, but they had other limitations. So here are some conventional truck chassis solutions.
1. Freightliner from Western Cartage and Storage of Edmonton carries a small drom behind the sleeper. Note the contorted stacks.
2. Three years later, same trailer, AVL-270 ( a Roussy), but a new Western Star with a similar sleeper/drom, but a little space has been sacrificed to keep the stacks straight.
3. This F'liner has a combination sleeper drom, but manages to have straight stacks.
4. Close up of the same AMJ Campbell truck shows the moving van type door.
5. Classy deep green coloured Freightliner running for Mayflower out of Alberta has crooked stacks, but a little less radical than the first one.
6. This rig has a big box, some of which is sleeper. Running for Harris Moving and Storage of Sudbury, ON, the Peterbilt as an extra pair of headlights mounted on the rad, like an older model Pete.
8. Not a drom, but one way to get more load. This stylish Pete with low rise sleeper loads a car on the roof. Not sure how it got there or how they get it off at the other end. Some mover ran compete autoracks out of Halifax during the armed forces re-posting season, particularly the moves to Alberta and BC.
