I would like to tell you about two types of vehicles I have seen so far. The first one is about Road Trains, I have seen them in the Northern Territory and Western Australia. The second one about 5th wheelers. I have seen them in the Northern Territory and Western Australia.
On this trip I have seen heaps of Road Trains, they are just like normal trucks but have up to three to four trailers.
- They can be up to 54 metres long
- So far I have seen them in the Northern Territory and Western Australia.
Once at a rest stop called Undumarra wayside inn we saw a 5th wheeler turn up so Mumma and I went over to ask if we could have a look and the man gave us a tour of it.
Now imagine a caravan and enlarge it to the size of a shipping container. Change the connecter to a semi-trailer connecter.
- It weighs 5 tonnes
- It has air brakes and has two axles

Wow those are some big trucks,
And 54 metres long!
I hope you are enjoying your trip cosi
Dear Cosi, Please be careful around those road trains, I do not suggest letting your parents over take them on the road. Crystal
They are very large. I am having a great trip
This is interesting Cosi, It must have been fascinating having a tour of the truck. Did you get up into the cabin? Where was the driver’s bed?
I am still not sure what a 5th wheeler is. Perhaps you will explain that more in Part 2.
