In hopes of atoning for neglecting this site for the past several months, here is a bit of catch up.
Yes they are rolling again in large numbers. Those European RVs keep arriving in Halifax by ship but I only get to see very few of them. Here is a sampling:
Swiss Dude (who may have a web site - his name is Demian) drives this VW van. Tight quarters inside no matter the raised roof, but being Swiss I guess he has no problem parking on hills.
This Merc from Germany has a very durable looking Wochner RV body. Over the front windshield it says "Xantaro 470 B4 4X4".
This array of ambulance / van conversions is largely self-explanatory:
Best Looking Truck of the Week
This rig takes the prize this week - in part because of its matching trailer. Also because the driver is still waiting after three days for his load. Likely a piece of farm machinery from a shipment that arrived some time ago - maybe hung up in customs.
Bus a gut
No matter where I was, I could not get a clear shot . Two layers of chain link fence forms a fairly effective filter, but I did see that number 8147 is one of at least three new OC Transpo buses to arrive in the past week.
Globetrotter hitches a ride
A Volvo Globetrotter arrived in port early in the week and waited outside the compound for a time until it was lashed down on its trailer.
Watson keeps on rollin'
There are Watson trucks nearly every week now, hauling Bombardier airplane components.
