School is in pay attention. Now while you may find some unbeliable terminology to describe Fibreglass it simply comes down to being a material that is not hard metal just like plastic. Now listen carefully there is a lot of Fiberglass in your beloved Kenworth yes more than the plastic in my beautiful VOLVO'S.
So there!

When the tilt tray came to pick up my neighours 6 month old Freightliner that he foolishy took for a swin in the flood water above the chassis height and stuffed it, well the tikt tray operator had a hell of a time loading it. The alloy bullbar was so low to the ground and with a set of front flaps even lower he had to winch the trucks front wheels up onto b locks of wood so the bloody thing could be dragged up the tray. 
I gave the operator full marks for being so carful in loading the truck without further damage. His tray had the ability to lift high and then slide way back and was fairly low but not low enough for the Freightliner.

That truck on the back of the tilt bizzo doesnt have much ground clearance considering the long 
wheelbase......It would only have to run over a match to drag its guts on the deck ......................

It amazes me how low deck trailers, particularly car carriers, can operate. They are so close to the ground they would fail the test the police do on kids lowered cars with the little wheels on a stick to check for minimum height. The leading edge of the bottom deck must be built like an ice-breaker to plough away gutters and lumps in the road.

Legal Ground Clearance here in mekico
Wheelbase x 3.3%
eg 8460mm x 3.3% = 279.18mm = roughly 11inches
