Volvo Trucks’ online video series ‘Welcome to My Cab’ invites viewers into the cabs of truckers from around the world.

In this episode we visit with the Hollins’ from West Virginia in the US who have been working on the road together for 13 years.

Rickie and Elizabeth own a giant Volvo VNL which they have adapted to feature an all-in-one bedroom and bathroom.

CREATURE COMFORTS


Watch as the Rickie Hollins takes cameras on a tour of their "big baby" and experience with them an average day on the road as they travel across the United States.

Rickie said: "Just being able to lay back and have the comforts of home, being out on the road as long as we are, is awesome.”

And Elizabeth's favourite features in her home-away-from-home? "I think the best thing for any woman is the shower and the toilet. At one, two in the morning when you have to go, you gotta go!"

Join the happy couple for an average day of their lives - out on the road and travelling all over the US.
