• "Semitrailer" means a trailer designed so that part of the weight of the trailer and part of the weight of any load on the trailer rests upon or is carried by another vehicle and coupled to another vehicle by a fifth wheel hitch. The definition in this section is based on design and, except as otherwise provided in this section, does not prohibit a semitrailer from fitting into another category of trailer based on use. [1983 c.338 §87]
