Long load for Challenger.

Challenger Motor Freight is the fifth largest trucking company in Canada, with more than 1500 trucks. Since it operates coast to coast and through the US to Mexico, its stripes are familiar sights. It is based in Cambridge, ON.
In 2009 they acquired Sandrock Speciality Carriers, and thereby expanded in oversize and equipment transport.This wide nose KW is hauling a Manac extendable bed trailer, still marked for Sandrock.
Challenger has made some pretty big moves including the following:
The trailer is a Manac, a company based in St-Georges de Beauce, QC, which is the biggest custom trailer builder in North America. It has factories in Quebec and Missouri, and owns the rights to Trailmobile Canada. See of course needs no introduction. This wide nose is a T800 by the look of it - a favourite for the heavy haulers and long load folks, particularly in central Canada.
The long shrink wrapped tower or pressure vessel is bound for export.
