The Heavy Haulers Resource Guide & HDT Rally Site


Recommended Posts


Welcome to The Heavy Haulers Resource Guide

HHRVResource.com is a compilation of information from the members of the HDT Forum supplemented by background information to help in the decision process to acquire, setup, and use a Class 8 truck as an RV hauler.

Additional information to other aspects of RVing have been added to increase the usefulness of the Resource Guide.

Also included in the Heavy Haulers Resource Guide are photos of member trucks, and the East Coast, West Coast and National HDT Rallies.

Welcome to The National HDT Rally Web Site

HDTRally.com web site holds the projected, current and historical information and photos from the National HDT Rallies held each year in the central part of the United States.

Mark, Not sure if this is the right place to post the info but had a good repair experience in Barstow, CA

American Towing & Recovery

2520 E. Main Street

Barstow, CA 92311


Had an air leak, they took a look at the truck right away, found a leaking cab air bag. No parts available in Barstow so they capped off the line to stop the leak. (Had cab air bags replaced at TEC Volvo in Reno two days later.) Took less than an hour and they only charged us 1/2 hour labor.

    I would like to add BS Trailer Sales  1900 East Wyatt Earp Blvd.  Phone# 888277-2537  Dodge City, KS 67801 to the trailer repair list.

The service was great, swift and the owner was quite friendly.

We broke a spring just west of Dodge on Saturday. I called and left a message stating what I needed on Sat.

Monday when I called to confirm if they could take care of me they said" I thought that was you sitting in our drive". Anyway they replaced two springs and had me on the road by 2:30pm.Great people to deal with and fair prices.

I've tried to add this one before but am having trouble doing it.

Torch Lake Campground and RV Park
5130 Torch Lake Rd, Conover, WI 54519


They have several long (100' +) pull through 50 amp sites and several (just as long) back in sites with 30 amp hookups.  Electric and water at the sites but a separate dump station.


We have gone here with our UTV, its directly on the trails.  But it isn't noisy with hot rods or anything like that.  I nice place to stay.

Can someone update the big rig RV site for Benton Ar? http://www.hhrvcampgrounds.com/cg_ARC_i13tra.php  Review shows it was shut down the end of April 2019. Being cleared for a car dealership.

This campground is now been removed from the map.

Submission Concerns

The issues a few have had submitting campgrounds are most likely because of using an iPad or Apple computer with the Safari browser which has conflicts with the submission form. Hopefully, this has been resolved to redirect those specific users to an alternative submission form link. This issue occurred because of an update to the database server and the redirect link for this specific situation was overlooked/missed during that update. Apologies for this error.


If there are questions about the campground site then the best way to ask a question is to use the contact us link on the site to send an email or email webmaster@hhrvcampgrounds.com. Posting a concern on the forum is likely to be missed.

The campgrounds mentioned above need to please be submitted through the website. 

Campground submissions are sparse, so to save time, submissions to the map are usually done monthly.

Thanks Trey and Susan for doing this.  It's a tool I use almost every trip.  I even have the "other" Susan Pope using it.☺️
