We have purchased a new (to us) Volvo 780, so our current truck is for sale. This truck will easily pull any trailer on the market, is extraordinarliy comfortable, and is as easy to drive as a dually pickup (and approximately the same wheelbase). It maneuvers far better than any pickup because it has a short wheelbase and a 50* wheelcut. Plus the hitch is 3'+ bhind the axle centerline so (unlike a pickup) you can easily jacknife the trailer into spots a pickup can not.
Meticulously maintained, and has never broken down in the almost 10 years we have used it for fulltime RVing.
1999 Volvo 610
Cummins ISM 400 hp/1450 torque
This truck is a short wheelbase tractor, originally configured to be an excellent daily driver. The deck is designed to carry an ATV or motorcycle and still tow a 5th wheel. It WILL NOT carry a smartcar, and may or may not carry a side-by-side ATV. That remains to be determined.Lots more info, pictures, video, and pricing can be found in the info sheet here.

To any needing, or wanting an HDT, I’ve seen it and can recommend it. It’s RV ready to go and is a “legal RV / motorhome” as far as licensing is concerned due to Jack’s modifications.
We just don’t need an HDT. But if we did it wouldn’t be for sale. Don’t let the mileage concern you. This truck is in excellent condition.
If you’re looking at a heavy trailer, above ~20K IMO, I would seriously consider this rig.
(I don’t get commission. I’ve just seen Jack’s work.)

Because I've received many questions on the same points I put together a little sheet that answers some of these common questions. Take a look at "A Note About Owning and Driving an RV Hauler Semi-Truck". This is mainly oriented to people not familiar with these trucks and that would compare them to an F450-class vehicle. If there are any questions I'm happy to answer them.
I saw this post and realize it was posted a long time ago but is this truck still for sale? if so how much and where is it located?
