This is one of our latest RVHauler conversion trucks. Ed from Alaska has been doing some dreaming. He has his retirement trailer purchased, and wants the truck to pull his new 5th wheel trailer. Gregg from RVHaulers happened to mention an 880 one day while they were doing a budget. Ed was a goner. It had to be the 880. Don't every mess with Ed's dreams. We found one, had a Dyno done, and it passed with flying colours. See Gregg from RVHaulers showing off Ed's new dream truck. It is getting a smart car loader, drom box, and most importantly the loudest train horns you have ever heard!

Fail - RV Hauler Road Test 2007 Volvo 880 18 Speed Eaton Fuller Ultrashift
Wow, that is alot of shifting! We were curious about this sharp looking truck.... Would it be a good candiate for conversion and removal of one (two) rear axles and become an RV Hauler? Gregg from www.rvhaulers.ca takes this truck on a test drive and shows you even with skip-shifting in the Eaton Fuller 18 speed ultrashift, it takes a LONG time to get to cruzin speed. The truck also fails the mechanical inspection. Just too many things to fix. As Gregg says, "he looks at 100 trucks before he finds one cream-puff". 99 more to go...
