1.2 million miles and counting, operator Tim Baumgartner’s patriotically decorated custom Volvo VNL has been a winner at a variety of beauty shows on the tow/wrecker circuit. In the video below, the latest in Volvo’s “Welcome to my cab” series of operator profile, Baumgartner gives a window into the truck and his Eugene, Ore.-based Crockett’s Interstate Towing.

“It’s just a class ride,” he says of the rig. Following an initial launch a few years back in Europe, the North American edition of “Welcome to my cab” began with owner-operators Jon and Miriam Brown’s custom-chassis daycab — converted with a mammoth custom sleeper by Show Hauler Motorhome Conversions.
