Current Projects: Finishing 2 of my Knight Haulers, 2 new van trailers awaiting being built into 28' scale pups, and also construction of 2 dollies on deck.
Fleet: Right now my operational fleet consists of one Knight Hauler, and 2 custom scale 48' flatbeds. One trailer is a tandem, the other is a spread. Both are polished, with wood decks and the spread is set up with a wireless lighting system and Alcoa replica super singles. The Knight has the light kit, as well as many extra LED's installed. I also have a slightly modified Tamiya van trailer. I also own a Toyota Tundra, stock except for aluminum wheels and S/S hardware.

I'm like u Jerry and probably like most everyone else, 1st truck u build is more likely to be the favorite. I do want to build a King next, the more I see the cool ones out there.

I agree with Ken.
My first truck was the King Hauler and it will always be my favorite. I think it's b/c there is so many mods available for it.
My first KH was modifide to look like my favorite 1/1 truck, the 379 Peterbilt.
The close second would have to be the Aaromax.

I have a feeling that when I get a King that it will become my favorite too. But my 1st will always have a special place....... :lol:

I agree that there is a lot one can do to a King Hauler. I think I relate more to the Knight Hauler just because when I ran team I drove a truck that was much more similar to the Knight than the King. The smoother lines and integrated sleeper just appealed to me. I am a big fan of the Peterbilt 387, of all the aerodynamic trucks on the road that would be my favorite, but I do like the Freightliner Coronado- which is the very close build design of the Knight Hauler. But I fall in love with a nice Pete 379 EXHD, or a KW W900... so it will be easy for me to enjoy a King as well.

Well, my favorite truck is currently my only truck which is the Globe Liner but I'm planning on adding a Knight Hauler to my collection sometime in the future.

for me, the king is king
the reason,i can turn it into almost any truck
if i want a pete,it can be
a western star or KW, yep etc,etc,etc
i posted pics of one i did into a KW 900 series in the group
i would say the globe comes in at #2 for me
i can build it as a international,pete,or KW as well
i'm working on that now
lol
the knight makes for a great highway rig
i have 2 but didn't take my saw to them
basically they're freightliners,but i'm studying them to see what i can do to change that

Well we cant wait to see what comes of those Knights Glenn. Even though I cast my vote for the Knight, I agree on the versatility of the King Hauler. I think I chose the Knight because it was my first build, and I am kind of inpartial to it. But I have a King in the works, going to be a stretched out Pete- if I ever get the rest of the parts to finish it!!
