Got any big truckstops in your area? Some of the mega-fleets are running "skirts" underneath the trailer as well as "trailer tails" that fold against the rear doors for loading and unloading. You can occasionally see Airtabs along the rear edge of the trailer as well as the rear fairing on the sleeper or cab of the truck. I personally haven't seen any of these "strakes" in operation, but I got away from being a truckstop mechanic a couple years ago.
