This week’s rig has all the comforts of home — and nearly as much space.
Drivers Angie and Larry Baum operate this 2018 Volvo 860 VNL. The standout feature of this truck is the 180-inch ARI Legacy custom sleeper that’s basically a full-size RV.
The main living area features a kitchen with a two-burner stove; a three-in-one microwave, grill and convection oven; and a sink. They also have a refrigerator, a pantry with pull-out drawers, and tons of storage.
In addition to the living area and kitchen, the couple enjoys the convenience of a shower and restroom. Their favorite feature, however, is the queen-size bed, complete with a memory-foam mattress.
The Baums call the truck “The Hulk” because of its green accents — and, of course, the size of the sleeper.
The couple has been driving together for seven years, and pull dry vans, reefers, doubles and triples, and they will soon add flatbed trailers.
