This is the trailer I started a ways back its not done but I am not continuing with it because I am working on something else. I also lost the original unwrap so I have to redo that and really don't wanna redo that. So I figured I would share at least what I have done if some whats to fix/mod what ever do so freely.
Only author is me.
Known problems-handle mesh twitch's, suspension is really stiff, ties are to tight
This pack is my attempt to capture the Streamline Moderne style popular in the 1930s and 1940s. The vehicles are all fictional, but their performance is realistic. I hope you'll enjoy driving them as much as I have enjoyed making them.
1948 Martin T64S "Custom" Tractor
A very low-slung 6x4 tractor. It has independent front suspension with double wishbones and load sharing rear suspension. The engine is a naturally aspirated 12-cylinder diesel driving through a 7-speed gearbox and locking differentials. Overall length is 29 ft, wheelbase 22 ft from front axle to centre of rear axle group, width 102 in, height 14 ft 9 in to tip of smokestacks. Kerb weight is 20,000 lbs, gross combination weight 80,000 lbs.
Fully loaded, the T64S will reach a top speed of 60 MPH with one of the included trailers. It will accelerate from 0-50 MPH in 1 minute, 0-60 MPH taking approximately 2 minutes.
1948 Martin O40 Tanker
A streamlined tank trailer in fictional "Hexaco" livery. Steel unibody, load sharing suspension. Overall length is 40 ft, wheelbase 28 ft from kingpin to axle group centre, width 102 in, height 10 ft 6 in. Loaded weight is 60,000 lbs.
1948 Martin F45 Flatbed
A simple flatbed trailer with stainless steel load deck and load sharing suspension. The deck is submeshed with the rollon flag and has ties to secure loads. Overall length is 45 ft, wheelbase 36 ft from kingpin to axle group centre, width 102 in, deck height 59 in, overall height 79 in to top of bulkhead. Kerb weight is 12,500 lbs, rated load 47,500 lbs.
1948 Martin V59 "Streamliner" Dry Van
A very large and somewhat impractical dry van. It has a streamlined stainless steel unibody and load sharing suspension. Overall length is 59 ft, wheelbase 47 ft from kingpin to axle group centre, width 102 in, height 14 ft 9 in. Loaded weight is 60,000 lbs.
These have only been tested in Rigs of Rods version 0.38.67.
The wheels have 40 nodes each, and the meshes were made in Sketchup. Don't expect these to be FPS-friendly.
The trailers are roll coupled via the system used by Lenni and Badboy for trailer steering. The centre of gravity and suspension are tuned accordingly; the trailers may topple easily on trucks that lack these nodes.
To minimise rolling resistance, the wheels are pushing the limits of the beam engine. They tend to oscillate when stationary. Caution is advised when stopping or parking on slopes as they may creep.
The trailers have very low drag. The T64S will not pull most other trailers at high speed.
CGTextures does not allow redistribution of its textures under open source licences. You must remove/replace their texture before releasing modifications of this truck. All other assets used are available for modding. See the readme for specific file information and licensing details.
This is the Mercedes Benz Actros 8x8 pack.
This package includes 8 versions:
- version with no upper part
- cartransporter (+trailer)

this is a project i will most probably never Finnish as i started something else instead.
its the 4x4 thing and a custom made crane trailer for it,
the 4x4 thing has 4 wheel steering at low speeds, locked diffs and a steering wheel.
the crane trailer has ropes and a invisible leg, the commands for it are are:
F9-F10 lower and lift the crane boom.
F11-F12 lower lift the invisible foot.
'O' connect load
'L' lock crane trailer to vehicle.
to connect the trailer drive the 4x4thing so the trailers hitch node is above the grease mark on the 4x4 thing and it 'L'
to pick up a load back the crane trailer over it lower it so its with in 1.5m from the object and it 'O' once it connects
and the ropes shorten hit F10 to lift the load of the ground and drive away. reverse order for dropping a load.
the crane trailer is usable on other 5th wheel hitches.
A Skin I Did For The Ekeri Trailer
it looks like the ones that was were rolling in norway/scandinavia some years ago
linjegods changed to schenker some years ago i think
got permission from Kuru to release the skin
*i made only the skin, everything else was made by the original authors!*
second upload to the repository another skin for my company rormart this skin is for the Ekeri trailer for 6x2 Scania R560 that kuru made to install it you just put the DDS file in to your ekeri.zip and you done!
- Detailed meshes
- Realistic buffers, coupling
- Custom sounds
- Animated stakes
- Hook system to fix your loads
- Coupling is done by pulling up/down the orange cylinders (nr. 1 and 2) at the edges with your mouse. Click here for a tutorial
- You can fix your loads by pulling down the orange cylinder nr. 3
- When you are in a locomotive, use Ctrl+F1/2 to retract the collision box and Ctrl+F3 to flip the stakes
- Sputnik_1: meshes, node and beam, sounds, textures
- BigBoy: much help and testing, thanks a lot!
- The Inviteds: testing
This is not compatible with BigBoys Bombardier ALP!
Here is the first US rolling stock, so you can finally tow some waggons with my ALP.
A loadable 40ft boxcar, comes in several liveries.
You can open the doors by grabbing the levers at the doors, the couplers can be locked/unlocked (both sides like on my ALP!) with the bigger lever at one end, on the other end there is a lever for the handbrake. Grab those with the mouse, you do not need to enter the waggons
If you enter a boxcar through the vehicle selection menu game will crash if you try to exit the boxcar, simply change into another enterable vehicle via the menu and exit there.
donoteat, maddrix for skins
sputnik_1 for helping me with adjusting the node/beam.

a dump trailer... i have tested it and it can have a 30 tonne load, as you can tell its not finished. it has no flares and no mesh wheels if you want to add some you can (jerald9000, you can ), i have done my part, mostly. and i have a half height version come soon. its fully contactable and is 3 flexibody mesh's you can edit the textures i have left 2, framep.png and bucketp.png blank textures, remove the p and save them as bucket_green.png frame_green.png
(that _green texture i have so you can make your own and not have to worry about going over the other 2 colors).
the picture shows the log, i slid out when i tilted the bin/bucket back so be care full with your loads( 10t log )
here is my second upload on the repo:
A 300 ton Heavy Haul LowBoy trailer.
I made the 3d-model some time ago, now I put it into RoR with some overwork.
You can change the color by editing the "300tlb_color.jpg" and the color of the wheels by editing the "300tlb_wheelcolor.jpg".
It has only five invisible wheels, this means it works very smooth even on lower systems (and that is actually the reason why I "cheated" ;-) ).
Use F3/F4 for the (invisible) trailer legs under the first part.
With F1/F2 you can rotate the steering dolly to the left and right. As far as I know this is done via hydraulic in real life. In fact it is just like a semi, but not propulsed.
It is loaded with a big tube.
Have fun driving it (and don't forget to look after the steering dolly ;-) ).
Hello, I'm happy to introduce my first ever official mod to a trailer, It is a monster energy skin for the FEDEX 53ft Great Dane dryvan, Just throw it in packs, Because of the (1) at the end it will not overwrite, So enjoy, I hope it is a cool mod to you guys, It took about 3 hours to get it right... haha.
Here is a 2003 53 foot Great Dane dryvan that I made with Crazyjoe it has opening doors and a contactable inside so you can load crates cars or whatever you pleas into it. The sides of the trailer and the doors are sinkable if you have any questions see the forum link below. Trailer body is fully mesh and has moving mudflaps too.
This is a Cincinnati Bengals skin zip for the 53Foot greatdane made by Jerald9000.
To install this you need to at least have trailer. You must replace the files within the folder with the ones in the original trailer folder.
This is a Detroit Lions skin zip for the 53Foot greatdane made by Jerald9000.
To install this you need to at least have trailer. You must replace the files within the folder with the ones in the original trailer folder
This is jerald9000's 53-foot Great Dane trailer, reskinned into the livery of my new trucking company, Dreamland Trucking. The blank area in the center of the sides of the trailers can be skinned to your liking. It should not overwrite the original trailer.
Kenworth Transfer Dump Truck
A transfer dump truck inspired by a request on the forum.
Credits go to Box5Diesel for his Kenworth truck.
For information on how the system works see the request and showrooms thread.
Feel free to modify, but use a different unique id to make it not conflicting with my truck.
Skins for Box5diesels Kenworth should work on this truck, but I'm not sure.
I've fixed a little bug with the material of the trailer dump box.
A standard 45 foot box trailer, as seen behind semis all over the United States. Weathered; decently easy to reskin. New version includes contactable submesh by tommylommykins, and fixed rims. (well, they work in North Saint Helens now, but they stopped working in Flatmap. :| )
Pull the trailer next to the load so the rear part is at the right place.
Disconnect the rear part with F11 and pull the front part to the front attachment point.
Use a crane to put the load on, the wood load also has invisible legs so it can be loaded without crane, use F9/10.
The steering strength can be adjusted with F5/6 to fit to the length of the load.
The rear part has manual steering for special situations: F7/8, don't use when the steering is already at maximum angle!
The legs fold in automatically if you pull them up with F1, hold F2 until they fully fold out.
The load will attach on the trailer automatically once it is close enough to the right position.
To unload push F12, but attach it to a crane first and put enough tension until the trailer almost lifts off!
Thanks to Lifter for the hookgroups and triggers and for support with this project!
Thanks to fidoj for his roof part load!
Please do not modify this without my permission,
skins can be added using the skin file system: skins-working
If this system is used properly then no need for my permission for skins.
This is a new skin for the Wabash Trailer, only this one makes a 2nd NASCAR skin. The skin is based off the 2nd legend in NASCAR , Dale Earnhardt. This replaces the original skin, so make backup if possible. Have Fun. Credits: Nadeox1 for the trailer, and me for the reskinning. I did get permission from him through skype.( [1:45:50 AM] Nadeox1: I made that trailer to be skinned. just don't release the whole pack, just the skin.) Link to the trailer for download:.53-Wabash-Duraplate
Here's a trailer I made awhile back with a detaching Neck. It can haul some big stuff, has a flexbody deck that bends flat with a heavy load and flexes over bumps. Its not all that finished, but its as finished as its gonna get, lol. I made a video to show how to use it
Ctrl F1 to raise the neck so you can back under and lock on
Ctrl F2 seats the neck on the hitch after you locked on
Ctrl F3 attaches neck to the trailer
Ctrl F4 detaches neck so you can drive it out of the way to load/unload
A logtrailer that is actually capable of hauling logs arround.
It comes with 3 logs of different weight and size.
The logs were made by Asperion and I have premission to release them with this pack (I've only made minor adjustments to it).
This pack comes with two versions:
High FPS with ordinary wheels
High Detail with meshwheels.
I'm aware of the fact that it spawns of-pad.
Just spawn a log after you spawn the trailer and you should be fine.
Thanks to DennisW for helping me mess arround with the shock values.
here is a set of 2006 Lamar tandem axle trailers me and Crazyjoe made the first one has a ramp for loading cars and tractors and such the secound one has no ramp and is for huling loads like hay bails logs craits or whatever you have that requires a trailer with ought a ramp please place in packs and enjoy. WARNING This trailer is not to be modded withought permission from myself and Crazyjoe.
