I own trucks. This would be a nightmare, if not illegal. When making sharp turns that twenty feet of mast wouldn't bend, power poles, other vehicles and anything sitting in an intersection would get hit. Picture a truck and trailer at a ninety degree angle with 20' of mast extending from the trailer. Some truckers have hit stuff with the nose of there trailer, how you ask, because it swings out beyond the limits of the truck when making a sharp turn. Adding 20' to that would suck tremendously, just the seven feet it would extend past my 53-foot trailer would be a nightmare..
Most box trailers are at the legal
limit for height. If it was mounted on top it would not be legal
It will take a flatbed and some permits.
I don't have flatbeds or I would cut you a deal directly. You could try to got to a truckstop and ask, but I wouldn't. Go through a freight broker or a flatbed company... with good cargo insurance
. The market is competitive enough that you will not be getting ripped off. Operating costs are high in this industry, even though we charge you what seems like an arm and a leg, we aren't getting rich off of you.
