That trucking industry business development leads us to have a lot of choices when we need to buy a new bobtail truck. There is a lot of different manufacturers and different truck models and all of them have their pros and cons.
At the end most of trucking companies owner have some preferences and they make buying decision as a combinations of ratio and emotions. For that reason you can definitely pop up to all kind of different trucking company owners saying this truck is good but this is better and so on.

I created the small overview of the 10 best
you can find on todays market:
1. Volvo 670
Volvo presents one of the most popular bobtail trucks in todays USA truck market and literally wherever you turn you can see a Volvo truck. There is a pretty good reason for this popularity. Volvo presents really good buying options and has one of the best in class cost/benefit ratios.
Fuel efficiency is one of the best in class but in this area almost all competition is working really hard so if you have a truck that had an amazing fuel efficiency in few years entire competition has the same best fuel efficiency. Anyway Volvo is known for good quality and cheap maintenance cost so that makes him one (or maybe first) of the best choices you can make when deciding which bobtail truck to buy.
Volvo 670 presents the good option for the OTR trucking and most companies choose this model for their daily operations. The model 670 provides the best ratio when it comes to driving comfort, quality and price.
2. Volvo 780
The bigger brother of the above described bobtail truck Volvo 670 offers even more comfort and luxury than the smaller version. The biggest change comes in a form of the bigger and larger truck cabin offering state of the art driver comfort and you can truly call it a driving home.
There is a decent number of these Volvo models you can see on the road but trucking companies usually are not that willing to buy this top model because the price compared to the standard one can be up to 30k higher. For that reason only few companies have it and most of those companies have long driving load where drivers comfort plays the key role.
Also in some cases when buying a fleet of new bobtail trucks, truck dealerships offer these trucks at a discounted price and that is the reason most of the Volvo 780 truck are bought. Reduced price and willingness to treat the drivers like kings makes this ultra strong and comfort truck a top choice for every driver.
3. Freightliner Cascadia
Together with Volvo truck series presents the most popular trucks in Class 8 market segment and also is one of the first choices of most trucking companies. When you combine Volvo and Freightliner you can be 100% sure that those two companies hold 2/3 of the OTR truck market.
Owned by Mercedes Benz Freightliner is well known for his durable engines and one of the best fuel efficiencies on todays market. Also besides the engine and fuel efficiency the entire line up is well known for the good interior finishing and nice interior design.
