During this week’s interview with Rob Halloway, he mentioned about his camping trip with an Actros truck. For people who don’t know anything about Actros, I would like to give a brief information. Actros is the top of the range from the Mercedes-Benz Truck, it features very high powered diesel engines with enormous amount of torque. The one Rob drove had 600PS and more than 2000nm torque, which means it is nearly ten times more powerful than a normal family hatchback!
Anyway, these trucks are designed for long journeys and offer state-of-art comfort for driving and sleeping. Double cab models offer two beds in the back of the cab, where Rob slept during his camping. Also, these trucks have automatic gearbox and lots of electronic features similar to passenger cars. Theoretically they are easy to drive but in practice, you need lots of experience!
