if i remember rightly, they used to have Turnpike doubles in 18 wheels of steel. they were interesting to drive but managable once you got the hang of it

In real life there are no 13.6 + 13.6 meters [Yes you were wrong they were not 25 meters] trailers on EU or USA highways [But maybe on Australia roads]

But there are 7.8 + 7.8 meters.

Sorry to say but you are completely wrong here in Canada you have 53 ft traillers but here we can only pull 3 of those across Canada

another note USA allows 2 48ft trailers thats max yes there are some 25-28ft trailers that are pulled as triples in some states i live in Canada but you need to pay attention sir and do your homework and research

3rd note person driving the trailers in the youtube video has no clue and 2 100% a kid driving you can tell by how the truck steers and how trailers act. if you dont believe me try it on Farm Simulator 15 or 17 some time might due you some good for learning :P

With the way how the games are set up, one would not be required to back up doubles

I too, said as much in a related post.
Also, the trailers could be permanently attached. The "double" could essentially be one "trailer object" and all you need do is hitch it up like normal.
Some of the company prefabs are large enough with ample in and out space to accommodate doubles already.
I'm with you, I want these larger trailers.

I had 18wos haulin a while ago, reversing a pike double was interesting, doable but not easy.
