Volvo VAH Daycabs and Sleepers Designed and Built Just for the Car Hauler Industry

A smooth comfortable ride, superior noise suppression and ergonomically-optimized seating are just a few of the premium VAH features designed to enhance driver productivity. The VAH series employs a unique configuration that reduces overall height to provide the ultimate in loading flexibility. Deep-drop front axles, low-height Volvo Air Ride rear suspensions and reduced-height cab options all contribute to lower overall height, offering the flexibility to position a car, pick-up or minivan over the truck’s cab. A clean top-of-frame behind the VAH cab expedites body mounting and eases trailer hookup.

As the premier car hauler dealership in North America, we sell more Volvo VAHs than any other dealership in the country. This allows us to work directly with the factory and share customer feedback that helps shape the design of the VAH – better meeting our customer’s needs. 

Our selection of new and used car carrier trucks within the Volvo VAH Series include:

VAH 300 Daycab

The VAH 300 is designed to provide exceptional performance in tight spots thanks to a tight turning radius. Available with a 94.5″ or 97.5″ roof height, the VAH 300 is capable of carrying 11 trucks.
