Join up over at RVNetwork.com. Bunch of truck conversions on the HDT forum.
While my Volvo is a manual, the Volvo I-Shift is an amazing transmission. Enjoy the Ride!

That is a gorgeous rig!! Thanks for sharing. How is it powered? Would you mind sharing some photos of the mechanicals, storage, etc?

Whoa....is that a separate front stateroom?

So the cab opens to the back, but is that a separate bedroom there? Then a door that goes back to the living area?

Yes the cab opens into a separate bedroom that has a queen bed above the cab, a fold down bunk on the driver side wall and a couch below. On the passenger side there is a half bath.

It has a 600hp Volvo motor and a Volvo 12 speed iShift transmission. I like the idea of having all Volvo due to my experience with service departments pointing fingers at one another.

I can get some pics of the storage and mechanicals in the next few days and I will post them. You can also go to showhaulers facebook page and look back to August (I think) and see lots of pics of it.

That is a very unique floorplan. 600hp will certainly get the job done! The all Volvo approach makes sense.

The photos on FB are excellent. I especially like the way they've engineered the roof to completely hide all the roof top equipment. That super clean look is really catching on in high end coaches.

We looked at a few Dynamax units, not quite the same as what you have but we liked the "truck" format. In the end we were looking at used units only and there are just not a lot of them out there and the configurations were always just a little off from what we needed.

Great looking unit, sure you will enjoy it!
