Thank you!! ATS needed a mod like this very much. If someone is wondering if it works with ETS2, yes, it does. No need to change absolutely anything ;)

Just one question, could you add in the future the Curtainsider body type, too?

@MrCapital , Thank you very much for this, it is highly appreciated!

As noted by LAFAYET47, this was an important omission in ATS - now remedied. I'll be trying this out later today on my Eurotruck ports to ATS.

I will add new trailer types to this trailer as I'm adding new cargo boxes for the VNL.

@bobodidley: This topic is about an invisible trailer. Hence, no box at all to skin. As you also, just this morning, posted the exact same question in my Volvo topic I guess it's about the rigid box. Then you get nowhere with spamming several topics.

That question has been asked on this forum hundreds of times already so if you'd bother to search a little you'd found the answer.

@MrCapital, I've just tested your Invisible dryvan mod on my ported Volvo F88. My old beauty looks so svelte now, it's such a slimming trailer!

Worked like a charm - once I remembered to turn the auto parking dialog back on! Thanks for this, it adds another dimension to the game, and that is always a good thing.

Cheers, and thank you!

I'm glad you like it. I actually have hooked the trailer with ATS on, but then I had recently unhooked it and knew it was right behind the truck. I most often just hook the trailer in the trailer manager.

I looked at the collisions on this trailer and have to say it’s fantastic. The wheels are right behind the truck, they track perfectly, are narrower than the truck width. Fantastic!

@MrCapital, I may have been unclear. When I was talking about the 'auto parking dialog' I was referring to the need to use the 'hit the enter key' to finish the delivery or load the trailer. I imagine if I unhook it - and lose sight of it, as it were - the easy remedy is to hit the zero key and land the truck again.

A questions for you - the trailer seems to induce a moderate under-steer. With the XBS Volvo F88 rigid chassis I had previously experienced severe under-steer until I added some weight to the chassis over the front axle. I suspect a wee bit more may be required. If you'd be so kind, could you also explain to me the significance and impact of the COG values you have set for the chassis? I'm curious as to how this functions. Much appreciated.

I'm must say, I'm enjoying this quite a bit. The drive from my Home Base in Port Angeles to Elko has been quite a treat.
