As per the HTA, all vehicles (ie. float entries) must lawlfully traverse the roads. As a courtesy, we have provided a summary and link from the MTO below that we believe will be a good reference for float builders.

Definition of semi-trailer: A vehicle that is towed by another vehicle and is so designed and used that a substantial part of its weight and load rests on, or is carried by, the other vehicle or a trailer converter dolly through a fifth wheel assembly.

Maximum weight allowances are determined using axle configurations and spacings. A permit is required if the axle and/or gross vehicle weight exceeds the limits set out in the HTA.
