The container was actually tapered on all sides, small end at the front large end at the rear . The trailer was probably (4) axles (maybe 5) (duals).
The interesting thing was the trailer tires were tucked up under the side rail of the trailer. And, the tractors weren't anything special that I
could see, look liked regular KW and Pete heavy haulers with a 3rd lift axle which was down under the load. They didn't have twin steering axles like
the pic. Just a single, but they did have the heavy front ends on them with the bigger tires.
The container on the back of the trailer was about 1' off the ground (if that). The containers were equally tapered on all sides and they finished on
an almost point (above the 8x8 section I referred to above). Honestly, the containers looked just like a green Washington Monument laying on their
sides (albeit much smaller at only 65' feet or so long).
I assume the trailers were designed the way they were to keep them under bridge height. They weren't escorted and they didn't have any pilots. Just
(4) trucks running down the road with these big green containers on them.
The trailers looked pretty beefy, like they might have had some big hydraulic cylinders in the frames. The frames were probably 18" +/- in depth
(structural member parts), plus the deck. The decks looked very specialized like they may have been rail frames, or some kind of a highly adapted
trailer. Each trailer was exactly the same. These were not winch trucks with something winched up over a tail roll. There were no straps or
binders, so I'm assuming the containers were actually somehow part of the trailer.
ETA - The trailers didn't have any ladders (that I could see). They just looked like long tapered shipping containers with military
