I took a look just now at the IH trucks on the Edmonton sale and I expect part of it is that it ISN'T a Pete or Kenworth, but also depending on the unit I see some had the maxforce engine and perhaps that was part of it and some units had 40 rears, funky paint jobs and so on, also not enough room behind a large sleeper for some types of trailer designs, and some with the wind deflector on a day cab that others don't want. But looking at a bit older Frieghtliners, they didn't sell high either. Notice on some of the IH trucks and probably some of the others that are not deemed as popular, the very limited amount of photos taken and in some cases no elaborate pictures of the interior or anything which means to me that RB already knows its not going to bring much so they don't spend the time on each unit to advertise. Just an guessed observation on my part.
