  1. What is a lot lizard? Are they dangerous, or do they pose a threat??
  2. I think you are right, HDT RV haulers are pretty cool!
  3. Were you prior Military, stemming from your location?? I have spent a winter and a summer in Alaska for Military training myself, and I have to say that Alaska is without a doubt one of the most beautiful places I have ever been, and I have been to plenty of places, including Russia.. Spent a day is Seward, Delta Junction, Anchorage, Fairbanks, and a few other places out in the middle of nowhere! The only thing that got my attention, were the wild Wolves, Moose, Bears, and Hell's Angel's... But I can definitely see myself with a HDT RV Hauler and a Toy hauler in Alaska.. In fact,
  4. Hmmm, interesting, A kenworth HDT RV hauler.. ( and a new one I might add)!! You own a Kenworth T680 amongst a biased group of Volvo's owners, as your weapon of choice.. How do you like it as an HDT RV hauler, and what propositioned you to fly against the winds of the common minds?? LOL
  5. You have a Beautiful Set up Jack, no denying that!!! That's a pretty good point you made about the Motorhomes being just as big as your rig in terms of blocking the view.. However, why are people so biased towards Motorhomes vs HDT RV's?? Is it jealousy, envy, or are they just being grumpy that an HDT RV setup might be a bit more clever than their setup?
  6. Hello Roger, Do you ever get the (beat down) question "your truck burns more fuel than mine does" or "your truck has more exhaust fumes" than my smaller truck does?
  7. I have to admit, those trucks are cool as heck to EVERYONE!!
  8. I love happy endings, Thank you for sharing that!!
  9. Hello my fellow brother's and sisters of the military, or Civilian counter Partners! Love to hear some stories about your "BEST" duty station assignments, or the absolutely WORST!! I will have to say I cant just list one for my best or worst... Mind you, the locations listed below had VERY beautiful landscape.. But the bases themselves as far as the base operations and family accommodations, were either very good, or Very bad!!! BEST: Camp Lejeune N.C, Okinawa, Japan Camp Pendelton, Ca WORST: Iwakuni, Japan Waldbrol, Germany Aviano Italy
  10. Well needless to say, the water tastes better here now...LOL
  11. Some people just "LOVE to HATE", but I believe that it is all the better on your part! My personal theory is: "if someone gets angry or jealous of you by doing absolutely nothing wrong, then you are absolutely doing something right"!! Very nice rig, sir!
  12. (laughing) Very clever way to disperse a crowd!
  13. Wow, the nerve, huh?? LOL I have heard from other Class A owners, that they actually "LOVE" the HDT RV Hauler concept.. But a lot of them were a bit "miffed" because the HDT RV Haulers takes away the spotlight and attention from their over priced RV Class A diesel pusher when compared.. LOL
  14. That is exactly what I like to hear!! Truckers that respect and appreciate the hard work that it takes to build and own one of these!! I have to be honest, that I fell in love with this idea from day one!! So now I am waiting my time till I own one.. (wont be long) Thank you for your input!
  15. Hello all, just some general question I have always asked myself, but need answers. I had a conversation with a friend recently, and he gave me his personal experiences about how other people respect, view, or treat him when they see these big monsters roll into their campsites or RV resorts... I can imagine that some people might feel threatened, because they feel that you will be invading in some of their personal space, and might act a bit defensive towards you?? 1) Are most people willing to accept the fact that you are different that they are without coming to their own conclusi
  16. Hey Jack, thank you for answering my question, and I'm impressed of your knowledge.. ( Wish I was as clever) However, I am not 100% convinced about your theory stemming from my question.. (single short/long stinger/frame) Plausible deniability... I conciser myself to be (somewhat) clever, and I have also have also served as a Marine Corps Motor Transport Chief for Many, Many years.. Not that my Occupational title means anything, or I feel I am the duty expert on the subject, but I am absolutely a fact checker! I do not just listen to people, and automatically assume they are right, b
  17. Question Jack, So does this mean that singling short might cause safety issues, based on the mechanical leverage? The Heavy or Heavier rigs (RV's) that are married up to a hitch with an extended frame behind a singled short truck , do they poses real issues? ***PLEASE correct me if I am wrong!! Another Question.. If a (for example) Volvo truck is singled short "as illustrated in the video", this would not an be ideal or safe set up, because the rear axle might become overloaded due to the mechanical leverage, and causing the front steers to become too light.. So the only RV Haul
  18. Thank you Rick, Proves that you can have your cake and eat it too! BUT, I am hoping to build/buy a road worthy 3-4yr old Volvo VNL 780HDT RV Hauler, a 3-4yr old Toy Hauler (40-45) Ft in length, and a simple Smart car bed that is just for that purpose.. ( no storage or anything fancy) Awesome find!!
