I've been to Goldendale for the Oregon Trail Rally. Go south a bit and you'll find the Maryhill Loops Road which is one of the first paved roads in WA. It's used as one of the rally stages. So awesome seeing Travis Pastrana go full send in his Subaru through that road. In general that area is such a scenic part of the state.

Another sleek Pete (And i don't know why some trailers are bent like this flatbed): https://www.google.com/maps/@36.9820363 ... 384!8i8192
I was searching this thread for some inspiration on flatbed setups, and I just noticed your question here. I don't believe it has been answered yet. Some flatbed trailers are bent so to avoid it from sagging in the middle when it is under a load. They are bent up in the middle, but only when they are empty. This way, when a load is sitting on the trailer, the bed bends so that it is straight.

Here's a Kenworth T680 midroof sleeper that's dirty from driving in the snow hauling a tarped flatbed load. It has super singles and a Flow Below aero kit.

@supersobes If you ever spot a blue Western Star 4900 dump truck with blue flames on the cab and a blue dumper around the Loudon, Fairfax, and Arlington County areas, that's one of my dad's dump trucks!
