I am always surprised when I go to Lacolle to see Wal-Mart trucks. It is about the only place in Quebec where we can see them. Should be delivering merchandise to stores  not far from the border. Here is a sample of trucks I have seen  during my last excursion.

I'll contribute a little something to this thread.

Saw what I thought was a normal Wal-Mart trailer with those aerodynamic side fairings, put it turns out, this is a Wal-Mart drop deck trailer. I've never seen one of these as far as I can recall.

He was heading Eastbound going past the Iowa 80 when we were merging on. Photo taken on 8/14.

I got pics of one last summer. Just saw one the other day. Probably the same one. They look nice for Internationals. They have the longer 2 window bunks, and tanks under the sleeper which really improves the look.

I might have posted it before, but figure I'll post it anyways becuz it goes with the thread so good...By the way, I unloaded a load of tubing the other day and the guy who was unloading me is a Wal-Mart shop maintance guy. He was asking me about the super single wheels on my truck and checked them out, becuz he said Wal-Mart has a bunch of them ordered. Also he added that there have been alot Cascadia ordered as well...

A nice Prostar I caught this morning. My first one too, I believe.
