I think this is a new find, Oak Harbor Freight Lines International Prostar 3 axle, no tag. Caught this guy on my travels to Fernley today. He mentioned that this terminal (RENO) will have 3 rostered. It is also an automatic, he likes it right now, but in the same sentence he said he will withhold judgement until he runs it through a winter.



They also have a new Mack, saw it today, but no picture. So at Reno they have 3 new Prostars, a new Mack, and some new Volvos. Will be hoping for a chance at the Mack sooner than later.

I Dont know if this is New or Not But Last Evening I Spotted a Stripeless Dryvan Trailer for R&L Carriers  ??? It Had the R&L Carriers Name on the side and Back Doors But No Stripes  :-\ It was Being Pulled By an IH 9200i T/A Daycab. I spotted Him on 95 Heading towards The Toll Plaza.

They ordered several of them. They were in Macungie when I was there last fall. I believe there were 15 on the order if I remember correctly. They all had Mack's new mDrive transmission. 8)
I believe Walt has caught a few as well.

Plenty of them around. They're all used...

Those OHFL Macks made quite a trip!

I spotted one of the Oak Harbor Macks hook to a set of triples heading out to I-80 for a trip east. Camera didn't turn on fast enough, so all I got today was the trailers :(

That's what I saw in the triple pack on their way to delivery.  If those black fairing extensions are anything like what we're getting on our VNLs they will be gone soon.  Some of the 30mph crosswinds we get that gust up to 45mph take those off pretty quick.

Great looking truck, love the FL too.

It seems they moved a number of the FL Columbia day cabs into Salt Lake recently, last 3 months or so, both blue and orange. Man it's been a windy pre-summer out here too. When the subject came up about these new tractors I was thinking we'd see them here, that one had 3,000 miles on it according to the team driver.
