    Steering when it's slippery outside must be exciting.
    Does it even have 10 000lbs on the steer?

    What is happening with truck prices in US?

    In Europe situation is crazy, 2 year old used trucks are worth what they costed new 2 years ago, new trucks are reaching 100k euro on new truck (Man) on really standard spec. I really don't see how one could start now with 1 used truck.

    I'm in the process of trading in my '19 T680 for a new one. If the trade in offer comes in where I think it will, depreciation will be just under $20K a year, or $0.16 c/mile. If I can drive a new truck for that, there's no way I'll ever try to keep an older truck running.

    I'm on my way to look at a 2018 R520 right now, but I can't look at the inside until Monday.
