Hopefully it's okay to ask such weird questions like these on a game related Forum. I have asked them on a different forum but I haven't got an answer from there. I've made some research about the most common trucks in different regions and I'm clueless about the needed informations about Scandinavian trucking.

So, the questions would be the following:
  • Which are the most common trucks in Scandinavia?
  • Are there many stock Volvos and Scanias or most of them are slightly or heavily modified?
  • Are MAN, DAF, Mercedes present too? How frequent are they?
  • Are the New generation Scanias more common than the other trucks?
  • Are Double trailers, BDFs (rigids) common in Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark?
Thank you for your effort! :)

I'm not sure what countries the trucks are from.
But most seem to be non modified.
And not only Volvo's and Scania's here.
Semi trucks are the most, in %.
After that Rigids with trailer. "Note, the semi trailer in picture is lower than most I have seen here."
B-double... I have atleast once seen 1!
Swap bodies? Not sure, tbh.
Most far away semi trailers I have seen? Turkey. Not that many days ago.

The most common trucks here in northern Sweden are Volvo and Scania, but the others are present too. Most of them are stock.

The most common is rigid trucks. Doubles, b-doubles and semi trucks are present, but they are mostly from other countries.

There is also a lot of logging trucks (rigids), since we have a lot of forest.

Einusch, hmm, there is a bit of a difference in different part of the countries :)
Logging trucks= rigid's+ trailer, those here too.

Cheers.
If and when? SCS do more of northern Scandiavia "+ Finland and Russia"
Then it could be plausible to suddenly, daytime, to see a logging truck + trailer, blocking half the road, loading logs.

I also hope SCS will make a 'further in Scandinavia' DLC, even featuring the Fjords of Norway!
