Race Truck Hauler Trailer
Scania Race Truck Hauler featuring a matching tractor and trailer. This is a totally fictious racing team - I hope you enjoy.
About this creation













Trailer
The trailer is based on pictures of various race team haulers and all appear to pack a lot into a relatively short trailer. In the U.S. trailers are much larger and are not attached to the tractor so closely. My trailer has three single wheel axles (six wheels total), ramps down at the rear and is of a lowboy design. The rear details on the side were particularly challenging as I wanted to fill the space using LEGO, but the angle did not correspond to regular LEGO slopes, so a little S.N.O.T. (Studs Not On Top) technique and lots of trial and error resulted in the creation of something that works and is unique.
Under the trailer are simple storage compartments where large items will be stored such as spare tires.
Each compartment features long doors that lift upwards for full access to the storage bays; they are in fact very similar in design to the ones on the luxury motor coach model. The trailer features blue marker lights just like the tractor as well as turn signal repeaters. The rear features full lighting and sits low for easy loading and unloading.

The floor plan of the trailer is divided into two distinct sections. The rear is simply a flatbed for transporting the racing truck, with the greatest weight sitting over the rear wheels. The front section is a closed in body containing a workshop and office area. The interior features a couch, flat screen TV, cabinets, tools, and various bits and pieces necessary for racing. Welding tanks and a large air compressor are also present.

For display purposes, the racer is actually attached to the trailer from underneath to prevent it from rolling off. The overall length of the model is 48 inches and has been entered into the 2010 Volusia County Fair for competition and display. I am pleased with the results and it is my hope that the many who see it will enjoy it and be inspired to build with LEGO!
