Before you get much response one way or another, maybe you should clarify if you are asking about trailers/tow vehicles only, or if motor homes/toads are included in your query.
Ours is almost 16,000 combined, I'm sure there are heavier combos.

Rig is 63', other numbers in sig. No, you got the weight of my grandad's 1968 Dodge Monaco (V8-440 cid) and 28' Streamline between yours and mine.

So what about your rig makes it so heavy, first time I've come across it?

Dimmer,

Your rig has got to win the prize. Hope to run into you one of these days. Of course, not physically - I'd be the bug.

Pat

Got you beat...

Not to brag, and its more as a temporary situation to move out the collection... And I don't know if it counts...

I bought my hubby a 50' long hauler for his "toys" (aka- vintage trailers) and its attached to the truck, which is about 25' long. Its a CDL trailer, I gave it to him for Christmas, he can haul 3 of his Bambis or Bubbles or Pacers, or Caravels. Or 2 of his Silver Streaks. Or his 1952 32' Sovereign of the Highway 2 door monstrosity and one of his Travelers at the same time. He can peg the ramps out- about 4 extra feet, and it gets a little longer if he loads it right with overhang....

Imperial Trailer is 45' with a 5' tongue- thats a 40' deck, 5' dovetail, and he pins the ramps out and gets it up to about 53-54' without having an Airstream overhanging the back. Pulling it full, he clocked in at 13MPG driving "his way" which is smooth and easy in the right lane, watching the hills. Its a triple axle, 7000LBs each axle, and he pulls it with one of our F350's. He wanted a custom semi, similar to yours, but he wanted it BIG and I thought we're almost done collecting, so the trailer was enough. I had to talk him out of building out a custom cabover with some 500HP engine that would have robbed the bank account to fill it up.

We also have a raggedy old 2 car hauler- total length with ramps pinned- about 42', with truck- about 66/67' Much easier- even I can drive that one.
