We need just 2 pivot points. If so, we can build or own double trailers.

I wouldn't mind seeing doubles in ETS2, however, if it's illegal in virtually ALL the countries available, then yeah.

Some of those yards/roads would be almost impossible to manage with a double. Never mind reversing the thing. I drove doubles in Haulin', fortunately you had a large yard to reverse in sometimes, but yeah, certainly made things interesting when reversing a double!

It is not neccessary to use two pivot points if we use the "dolly". This has two trailers: Dolly and semi-trailer, attached together:

This is done in ETS, by playing with the game.sii file, it couldn't be done by cargo files. Extreme Trucker 2, that had aussie roadtrains were assembled with cargo files. Much easier for player to have loads if you can add two different trailers into cargo file, rather than add it manually each time you want to haul combo. Unfortunatly haven't had time to export that dolly into ETS2 to check if this can be done in ETS2, but I will certainly try to accomplish this.
But there are lots of us who live in countries that allow (in finland 90% of our combos are this kind, not semi's) this combos. And we want to drive with these in game also.
Some of the intersections seem tight for these real trucks, but I think that those are not impossible, it just takes skills =D
But let's hope that we get these combos to work, right!!

Please explain that. Does the dolly in your picture move?

Sweden and Finland have the same length and weight limit for trucks so it doesnt matter really ^^

Tandems like DLC. SCS could do this. Tandems are trucks too and the game would be much more varied.

Im from the UK and currently visiting Aus... i would love B-Doubles or Rigid and Dolly and Trailer combos in the UK... just makes more sense... Denby are trying to get B-Doubles in the UK and Stan Robinson (R.I.P) was trying to get 80t road trains... would be good on the motorway... which is all ETS2 is...
