What do you enjoy about coming to trucking shows?

See all of the new products. Getting new ideas. Seeing all of the new stuff you can have for your truck. The new products kind of give you new ideas for your own truck.

— Kelly Eckhardt, Lander, Wyo., independent owner-operator

I come to look at the parts and the different products they have at the booths. Mostly, APU units is what I look at. That’s what I’m interested in.

— Luther Acker, Compton, Calif., independent owner-operator

I like looking at the old trucks they have fixed up. Then, checking out the new designs on the new trucks, seeing the new features and innovations they have been working on.

— Omar Diaz, Carson, Calif., dispatcher for California Transport

Looking at everybody’s work — we come to see the trucks in Pride and Polish.

— Floyd Johnson, Reno, Nev., independent owner-operator

The Pride and Polish trucks. I like to look at the different levels of customizing. I like to see all of the different people that come and check out what the vendors are offering.
