I'm not sure if Roberts runs reefers, but the Great Dane would look good with this model.

Yes they do, mostly Manac trailers though. The Moebius trailer might look a bit small for 1:24 though but it sure will be nice for a 1:25 scale rig.
By the way these days I am building a proper dry van for this Volvo, stay tuned. Box is finished, I have given it two coats of yellow. Next is the silver (aluminum) trim, corners and moldings.
Then completing the suspension... What a mess! This kit is not complete from the factory! Had to build channels for the assembly to slide back and forth on the rails...
Another thing I have to decide: 2 or 3 axles? I' ll have to cut the tandem and spread the three axles if I do. It would look darn cool! Another thing I want to add, the aero skirts at the bottom.
Still some ways to go . I'll post pics when I get it to an interesting stage. Thanks for the nice comments guys!

This is a nice one...It's good someone else is looking back in time and bringing some these past builds back to the front....Excellent build, Man...This is my all time favorite type of truck...The Volvo line...Awesome...And an Italeri race trailer would look right at home on the back... :)  :)  :)

Thanks JT! Actually I have a trailer specially done for this Volvo. It's an Italeri that has been "massaged" into something that matches the truck pretty nicely. A picture is worth a 1000 words so lets have them talk:

Oh, I'm not sure about changing my line of work there... This massage was a lot of work! But it was fun and I like the result. Thanks!

Love those Italeri trucks kits.  They need to make more different North American type subjects.

At least bring back the ones they cancelled like the Volvos and that Freightliner FLD. Why not introduce a couple new ones by the way? Maybe a late model Freight or Mack? A proper 389 Pete wouldn't be that difficult for them either. Kenworth W900L anyone?

That has been discussed extensively on many a model truck forum.  Italeri welcomes your comments go to their website and post.
