I see these type of trucks pulling an RV from time to time, but what's more interesting is why do the RV pull outs have red walls?


I noticed the same, would like to hear reasoning.

Day Cab wouldn't be my first choice of a HD truck to pull a RV with. Must be used for business too.


I was thinking the same thing. No shortage of operators in my area running rigs like this, pulling big aluminum stock trailers and goosenecks.

Most of us use trucks with sleepers so that they can be retitled as a motor home or in my case a RV title, when used for only non-commercial use as in towing the 5th wheel no scales or even a cdl needed but you might need a class endorsement according to your state. Plus if needed the truck could be used as another rv for shorter trips.

They are quite the attention-getter in the campground.

That 5th wheel is tiny compared to this 57ft.

Not sure what the other side looks like, but that side has almost no windows in it.
