How Long Is A Volvo 780 Bumper To Bumper?

They vary a lot. It has to do with wheel base. Remember that on these trucks with dual drive axels, the wheel base is measured from the center of the front axel to the mid point between both rear axels. 

Then there's differences in length of frames, depending on how the truck was ordered.

Sorry there's no pat answer.

Mine is a 670 (shorter cab than a 780) with a 209" WB. I had 25" added to the frame for the RV hitch and now, total length is 23' 8" with the chrome rear bumper.

I'd go to a dealer (if you have one near) and do some measuring for yourself. should get you in the ball park.

Hope this helps.

Bob,

 

Recheck that tape measure.     To get an idea of how long a truck is take the wheelbase add the front axle set back around 50" in most cases and add 54 inches for the rear axle/tires, frame.   

So Bob's truck has a 209" WB add 104 plus the 25" extension, my math come out to 27' 5" Volvo may have a bit more axle set back?

You are darn close. Just pulled a tape down the side of the truck.... drum-roll... 28'5" bumper to bumper. My post was in error. I can fit 29'6" in my driveway. Hence the original search for a 209- 213" wheelbase.
