Long Haul Trucking
« on: March 01, 2004, 02:29:16 PM »
I was lookin through the Long Haul Trucking calendars that I got and I was wondering do all of their trucks look this good or are they one of those companies that puts their best looking trucks in the calendar or promotion materials?

I personally have only seen one of their trucks and that was years ago.  

Just so no one will get mixed up, this is the company from Albertville, MN.

All the ones I've ever seen have had the cool paint jobs and stuff.

No, I don't really see them all that often.  But the ones I spotted in the midwest all had the sweet paint jobs.  I hope that DCP will make one with a covered wagon.

Well its that time of the year again and another Long Haul Calendar in my possession. :D   Just got it today and man is it awesome! :P   It seems from a calendar prospective, that Long Haul is going more torwards the Pete 387 as its model of choice instead of the 379.  There are 4 in this calendar.  All 05's for team drivers and one of them is an O/O.  I dont think I've ever seen company trucks, like those belonging to Long Haul.  The paint jobs are just mind blowing.  Love the American flag theme on 2 of the trucks featured in this calendar.  What can I say about the 387 on the cover :shock:   Every year its a thrill to get this calendar and every year they surpass on the one before it.

Take it easy and happy holidays!

Nice catch, James! Yep, those Long Haul 387s are some of the sharpest 387s out there, IMO.  8-)

I know this is an older thread, but here are a couple of other Petes delivering to Kaiser Aluminum in Richland, WA this past summer. Definately eye catching graphics!

AirTabs, their purpose is to basically allow/make the air flow "jump" over the gap between the back of the truck and the front of the trailer instead of the air being sucked in and swirling behind the cab causing drag.  It's a drag reducer I guess you could say.
