A bobtail truck is a truck that is not carrying anything. It has no trailer or chassis connected.

It is usually the tractor part of a semi truck without the trailer. It can also refer to a truck where all of the axles are connected to the same chassis.

A 'bobtail' is a colloquial term for the cab/tractor of a semi-truck. Therefore, the sign "No Bobtail Parking", for example, indicates no parking of semi cabs allowed.

A box truck is a truck with a box attached to the chassis behind the cab. Think "U-Haul", "Penske", etc. A bobtail truck is a truck-tractor, also known as a prime mover, which uses a fifth-wheel hitch to tow a semi-trailer. Think of an 18-wheeler without the trailer attached.

Bobtail insurance is insurance one would need when driving with just the cab of a semi truck without the trailer. One can obtain Bobtail insurance through Reliance Partners, Progressive, and Wolpert.

'Bobtail' does nothing to indicate the height. You'd have to be more specific, e.g., a truck with a 70" condo sleeper, or a day cab with a low roof, etc.

One with no trailer. When you go to a truck stop, a lot of them have "bobtail parking" areas. They don't want you to park the tractor itself in a place a tractor with a trailer can fit, so they'll take the real short areas and designate them "bobtail parking" zones.

bobtail means no transmission.

It can, yes. If you adjust your method of braking properly to account for the absence of weight, it shouldn't. If you simply slam on your brakes, it often will.

15,000 - 18,000 lbs., depending on specifics. More if it's a heavy spec truck.
