very nice pictures and trucks,
at first i thought they were screenshots from a moded game until i saw your arm.
i noticed there is a culture in Europe and the USA of having nice equipped trucks and drivers taking care of them(i just learned there are even magazines of them).
where i live the trucks look like wrecks,all dusty/dirty,poorly maintained and like rolling dangers,
transporting mainly construction stuff,food,stinky chickens and obviously other needed appliances.
maybe it's because i live in a small country with short distances and in the USA and Europe drivers get their own truck and treat it as a second home.
i even saw a video in a scania concession in Europe where they talk about not entering the cabin with shoes and had an inscription "no shoes" on the bottom of the entrance.

and another nice one i saw there

I've never heard it being called a "saddle plate" before. We and most places around the globe call it a fifth wheel. Nice photos by the way :)

@enmei that's a direct translation from the german term ("Sattelplatte") ;)

Cool shots once again mate, nice walking-floor convoy you got there !
