A Comprehensive Guide to the 18 Wheeler Truck


A very fine rig, all the way around…. both inside and out, the Kenworth is top-of-the-line, well built, classy, stylish and the ultimate owner operator vehicle.

It’s worthy of noting that a team of experienced truckers are consulted on the design of upcoming models for practicality.


Ahhhh. The ‘other’ fine Class 8 vehicle. The Pete is a popular choice by the owner operator, built to suit even the most discriminating of tastes!

That low and long look of many of the classic Peterbilts are no longer made, but they remain as the top sellers in the big truck used market. In fact, the 359 and 379 models are two of the most popular ever made in this class.


The Freightliner truck has always been very popular for fleets. It wins hands down for their recent innovative fuel efficient design and price tags.

They are less expensive to purchase and less expensive to operate, than their Paccar product competitors, the  Peterbilt and Kenworth.
