Straight Truck Length

Straight truck lengths are not standardized across the USA by the federal government. There are no minimums or maximums at the federal level and size and weight are governed entirely by each state separately. However, the most common length restriction is a 40′ maximum length for straight trucks, and having a straight truck of this length is the most common. Georgia, for example does not specify a limit and Wyoming’s limit is a generous 60′. If you are operating a straight truck in these jurisdictions and want a bigger one, go for it!
