Hey David, looks like you nailed it! I seen a lot of these in north louisiana & s. arkansas in the early '90's. I had a Mack r and a freightliner, both w/ sleepers hauling wood chips, lumber and would not hesitate to hook on to a pole trailer. There was some good money in pulling logs back then if you didn't mind getting your truck dirty! Oh, and if you hauled into Bastrop, that sleeper came in real handy. A 3-4 hr wait was normal! Seen a lot of good looking large cars come in there with a pole trailer. Nice job!

When the owner of Kangaroo died ...... must be close to 10 years back, the leftover stuff was sold, and most of the art work disappeared when the family where working out what to do with it

Kangaroo had the best decals, they where screen printed, and where quality, 

This website has what is left of the Kangaroo range, and there is not much left, a lot of decals where destroyed in a flood recently
