This is a modification of the flatbed trailer to a tri-axle B-double configuration (no dolly required)

The trailer is a Hybrid of Voidserpents MOC's with the front taken from the flatbed trailer and the rear taken from the Mack Tri-drive MOD / Tandem dolly MOC.

I did not add a steering option to the tri-axles, so the trailer will take wider turns. Steering could be added similar to the tandem dolly MOC. The number of axles could also be reduced to tandem.

The tri-axle section is replicated from the Mack tri-drive MOD but absent the differentials, drive axles & gears.

Same 5th wheel position and height makes it compatible with Voidserpents trailers.

Here you can see some potential problems when tight turning with the trailer wheels dragging sideways.

The design of the trailers make them easy to modify for different configurations such as B-double.
