Can you make "Ekeri trailers Addon" get a longer drawbar ?, the short drawbar does not fit all trucks for BDF Tandem ...

Or make a mod that fixes it or is there already one?

Jesus Christ. I think you have broken the record of nagging on this forum. I just say good luck to you getting any modder to make anything you wish for with this approach.

By the way @Gutte72 i have pulled the long Ekeri trailers with the flemming BDF, it works (just dont take corners too tight), the Nordic trailers are designed to be pulled by Nordic prime movers, (which Flemming's BDF is not) - there is nothing wrong with Kast's trailers, they are built EXACTLY to Nordic specification down to the draw-length of a nordic truck as they are designed to be hauled by a rear-hitch truck where the hitch is at the extreme rear of the truck, Flemming V's "BDF" is modelled on a central European and UK-spec drawbar outfit so has a deeper hitch to bring the trailer closer to the truck, and is more designed around centre-bogie design trailers with additional drawbars added to cater for players who like to haul Nordic tandems. As such there is nothing wrong with Flemming V's BDF mod.

they are modelled on differing trucks for differing markets. (Nordic trucks do not come to Central and southern Europe because they are over dimension for the main part of the EU so stay in the Nordics.

plus having worked in the trailer industry, I can tell you through first hand experience, Drawbar and Tandem trucks are purchased as a set with the body, hitch and trailer being built as per customer specification, so a drawbar combination made by Schmitz Cargobull purchased by DB-Schenker may not be able to use a trailer made for a drawbar combination made by Krone purchased for XPO, especially if 1 was meant for centre axle trailers and the other for turntable drawbar trailers. (even trailers made by the same company for different customers can be radically different when they're drawbar SETS. We did some for a customer that supplied drinks cans to the beverage industry, 18.5m low deck, 4m high supercube trailers, we also did drawbar trailers for the NHS - the two were NOT interchangable)

Kast wont be extending the draw beam on his trailers due to the work involved in re-physicsing the model and rebuilding it,
Flemming wont be adding a shallow hitch, just as Kast won't be adding a deep hitch. (I have asked about this because of the close coupled ekeri trailer could have done with a deep hitch BDF style and the answer was "sorry, no" )

May make sure not to take too hard curves should probably just remember it when driving ...

Someone wrote that there was an "Addon" somewhere that a throw had done once a long time ago with a longer drawbar or whoever it was ...

I took one from Aberdeen to Glasgow behind Flemming's BDF. only issues i had was when I was in the yards trying to hitch up, but once rolling it was fine, and that was with a Thermo King on the front bulkhead. I personally would keep it to using Kasts full dolly trailer with Kasts rigids, and use only centre-axle type trailers with Flemming's mod if they are not made by Flemming.

@Gutte72 You can only enter that command in the console. (You must use Google search in order to find the instructions to enable the console, once its enabled, use ~ to activate it)

@chuckypetya sounds like you just replaced a .dds with your custom texture for the trailer ... the owned ones need a bit of work with the definitions

if you're new to this way of skinning I have some suggestions to check-out

videos shows the Knapen, but it's the same way with any trailer ....
(here's the link which s below the video from that thread)


ekeri,knapen, kraker ...most of them are updated for the latest version of ModsStudio2 to be able to just click and compile your trailerskins....
