  1. 1998 Volvo 610 Class 8 Tractor $28,900 813,000 miles with normal lower end rebuild at 750,000 10 speed Rockwell transmission Cummins M-11 motor with 1450 foot pounds of torque (30% more than a new pickup) 8.9 miles per gallon uphill, downhill, headwind, tailwind, on cruise control 20K Reese hitch Two Brand New Front Tires ($750) Lots of Storage
  2. I have found the perfect truck or at least I think so but it has a Eaton 10 speed manual. Low miles, clean, price, nice paint, engine, right year, long w.b. but the transmission. Currently I drive a 6-speed manual F-350 with manual so I am use to the clutch. Clearly there are more manual transmissions in HDT's than Auto's at least in the pre-2007 year HDT's. Pretty sure I understand the con's; -Shifting -Resale Are you driving a manual HDT? If so tell me about your experience.
  3. SOLD I have a beautiful 2012 Volvo 730 for sale. It has 1.1 M KM on it but the transmission and blue def system were replaced at 1M KM. The frame has been sandblasted an painted and it has been degreased. It has passed a mechanical fitness in August 2020 and has not been on the road since. This unit has been really well cared for and is in really good condition. I have started to convert this truck to haul my fifth wheel but it will need to be completed. Due to new health issues I will no longer be able to travel and must regrettably abandon my dream truck. The truck still has both rear axles as I was going to leave it this way. I have installed a Trailer Saver hitch, the trailer wiring is complete using a Jackalopee and the trailer brakes are installed using a Tuson DirecLink Controller. The truck has the factory fridge, dinette, and cabin heater. All that is left to finish this truck is a deck and a rear view camera but that will be up to the new owner to finish as they please. I am going to take a loss on this truck and asking $30, 000 Canadian firm. More pictures of whatever you want to seen can be sent. Truck is located half way between Sudbury ON and Sault St. Marie ON. 2012 41' Redwood Fifth wheel in excellent hardly used condition also available $40,000 2016 Smart car with 38,000 KM also available. $9000

  5. Hi Everyone! We are new to the HDT World! My husband and I just purchased 2012 Volvo HDT to haul our 5th wheel. We purchased it in Wisconsin and the Volvo is titled as a motorhome. We went to our DMV in Florida (Hillsborough County) and they would not recognize the Volvo as a motorhome🤬 and we don't want to register it as a tractor trailer/semi. We want to know if there is an out of state company or a law firm that we can reach out to to get our HDT registered. Any king of help would be much appreciated! Thanks!
  6. 2007 Volvo VNL 670 For Sale $25,000 Price D12 Volvo Motor Eaton 10 speed 712,930 miles Work station/ Dinette New tires New exhaust New Batteries Just serviced Very nice condition No leaks Everything works We bought this truck in California April of 2012 with 696,758 miles on it. We negotiated with the Volvo dealer to have the truck inspected by Cummins running the truck on their dyno, having all the fluids analyzed and had their top technician inspect every item and system on the truck and Volvo would repair all the issues that were found. This made the truck mechanically excellent 16,172 miles ago. Any small issues that came up since then were handled by a Volvo dealer. No one other than a Volvo dealer has ever touched this truck since we owned it. All of the smog equipment is in place and functioning. Contact- Tracy Green (925)381-0377 tgreen2348@gmail.com The truck is currently in Livingston TX

  10. Hi everybody! I'm about to retire my ford E350 SD extended van in favor of something with a sleeper etc (HDT) but I have no clue where to start. I do not know what my options are (whats smaller than an hdt?) class numbers etc, what would "average" milage be 500K?, Any advise you can offer would be great. A little background on me...played music professionally for over 30 years, construction background, I own a cbd oil business so I can work from anywhere Would like a sleeper with enough room to build a small office space, not sure about hauling a small (smart) car may just take my motorcycle Caper is a bumper pull Jayco 32 bhds, 36 foot ..around 9500lbs loaded
  11. I have had this system in my Volvo 635 for several years, and it works well. I'm considering going to a smaller screen item and wondering if there'd be any interest in my system. It's a 12" Elo monitor running off a SFF PC. I'm using CoPilot truck 9, and the big screen makes it real easy to program while driving. Big buttons, bumpy roads, old man, etc combine to make it easy to work. Any interest, pls PM me. Whole working setup maybe $125, would need an inverter to make it work. Pics available as set up in my truck, a working system.
  12. In the never ending debate between LGTs and HDTs, there was a reference some time ago to a blog by someone who experienced an absolute nightmare trying to survive a mountain grade in a pickup truck while pulling a fifth wheel. I remember they spent much of the afternoon part way down letting the brakes cool and then crept on down, finding out later that their brakes were completely destroyed. I'd like to pass this on to a newbie friend, but I haven't been able to find it, even though I've searched back over four years. I'm sure someone smarter than me can point the way.. TIA, Jay

  16. So have been towing with a Chevy 3500 Crew Cab DRW. How does a HDT back vs the one ton, with the change in position of the hitch ? I have noticed most of the hitches are farther to the rear, mine of course is right over the axle. We are looking at moving up to an HDT, and just curious as to others experiences.

  19. Anyone tow with a HDT? Going to buy our truck today and have been looking at the newer F450's. Will the F450 require bags to tow a mobile suite? I know trucks but I know nothing about diesels or HDT's. Would rather have the HDT to sit higher and all the benefits of pulling/stopping our rig but don't know anything about manufactures, milage, etc... We will be traveling rvers living full time. Thanks for any input.

    Arvey

    Seems like toting Jeeps is becoming popular. I am glad we ran into an HDT in Arkansas, we were pushing the limits with our one ton Dodge. My wife Licia, myself, a dog, (Diesel), and a truck named Arvey:) will be heading to Pennsylvania, and New York, to wheel with friends, and visit the Finger Lakes area, next month.
  21. Unused and never installed. Complete with instructions. $95 including shipping. General purpose electrical interface between HDT electrical system and the RV or 5th wheel electrical system. Email me at mhylbom at mac dot com. Located in the Hill Country of TX for the next month but will ship with PayPal payment.
  22. If anyone is in the need of a set of full tandem fenders for you HDT I have a new set that was on our truck for a week. They have all the mounting hardware and are free of charge. We will be at both the ECR and the WCR so I can deliver them to you. I hate to throw them away they run about $1,100 dollars with the mounts.
  23. Not mine, I have no knowledge, just spotted in the Oregon craigslist, if anyone is interested. https://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/rvs/6051254857.html
  24. HI everyone! I am new to posting here. I have been doing some research at length and trying to put everything together, but I was wondering if I can get some recommendations on my specific situation! We currently tow our 41 foot fifth and a gooseneck with antique tractors with a 2004 Dodge with the cummins and six speed. While adequate power, I am growing more concerned regarding braking and suspension with each trip. Which is, of course, what prompted me to look into MDT. Our family consists of myself, my wife, a 4 year old and a one year old. Because they are still in car seats, I felt that a 4 door was necessary. ... I started my research and I really liked the SportChassis type freightliner and really liked the SportTruckRV version! I am one who wants to have power to spare, so I was specifically looking at the M2 112 version with the bigger displacement motor. However, we were not very excited about the price tags.... I am currently looking at a 2008 SportChassis with the 12 liter MBE and 35,000 miles on it and 2000 miles away from me....it looks great but ....unfortunately with a hefty price tag. Then I came across a used 2007 Volvo VNL 730 with 465 hp D12 and 580,000 miles. This was used most recently to haul grain trailers for a farm. it is 800 miles away from me. This has the sleeper, but the refrig is removed and it has been set up with 2 captains chairs sitting sideways and a dinette style table in the back. it is 1/3 the price of the SportChassis. I guess my concerns are: 1. Driving a large HDT- I have a non-commercial class A license, but without driving either MDT or HDT before, the MDT is less intimidating 2. Will it be a problem getting the car seats in and kids in the car seats, or would 4 doors be a lot better? 3. The Volvo is still a tandem....is it ok to leave it that way or will this need to be changed? 4. License/registration in PA....can it be an RV or does it have to be registered as a truck? 5. Is 580,000 miles too much and should I stay away based on that? 6. Parking when out on a trip without the fifth 7. Getting into some campgrounds...the truck is 12' tall, but the camper I guess would still be the limiting factor at 13'6" 8. Any other suggestions I am missing? I know these have probably been answered in one way or another multiple times on this great forum, but I was looking for recommendations for my situation in PA with 2 small children. Thanks in advance for all your help!
