A comparison of the nonlinear stability behavior of the steady state straight line motion of truck combinations with and without a second trailer is shown. These investigations have been done by applying bifurcation theory. Stability boundaries in the parameter space and the corresponding bifurcation solutions are given. Depending on the loading conditions, unstable and also stable limit cycles have been found. Particular emphasis is given to the influence of the frictional coupling between tire and road on the nonlinear stability behavior of these vehicles.
