The Articulated Trailer is a towable trailer in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.


Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

The Articulated Trailer is the generic semi-truck trailer that are intended to carry solid objects. It has a large wheelbase with two axles, stands and two yellow signs with "LONG VEHICLE" on it, as well as two unusable taillights.

The Articulated Trailer can spawn with three different variations:

  • Standard: The generic version of the trailer. This one will spawn blank or with the following liveries: Cok O Pops, Hinterland, Munky Juice, Ranch, RS Haul and Zip.
  • Hopper: Dumper version of the trailer, with an open top. Can be seen either empty or containing a load of black material inside of it.
  • Short: Another version of the standard trailer, but it has a shorter container and a flat space on the rear.

The following vehicles can tow any of the three trailers:

Being large trailers, these makes the truck a bit slower and also adds more length, requiring wide turns to take a corner without hitting them.

Being a trailer, it cannot be driven, however it does feature its own handling line. All versions are separated in the files, but shares the same properties.

  • Like many heavy vehicles, Articulated Trailers are depicted with double rear wheels on the original PS2 version of the game, while other versions will depict them with single wheels.
  • In the beta, there was going to be a green 'artict3' styled trailer intended to be pulled by the Roadtrain. This unused trailer can be found in the game files, and it can be spawned with mods. However, using modifications to make it usable won't work as the trailer itself cannot be attached to any truck. [citation/verification needed]
