One can tag the maximum width that can fit through, given zero length, and can tag the maximum length that can fit through, given zero width, but a trailer that has BOTH the maximum length and maximum width will not fit through.  You can't readily predict in advance whether a real-life trailer that comes close to either maximum will fit through without examining the chicane.
