RVH Lifestyles brings new bed style to marketClick here.

RVH Lifestyles customizes Heavy Duty Trucks to carry your recreational gear and vehicles, while also towing fifth wheel RV’s, horse trailers, race trailers, and boats.

We pair these trucks with high-quality heavy-duty hauler bodies, provide mechanical/conversion services, accessorization, and educational/training materials for the recreational market. We can work with your truck or a truck we provide. Our solutions can tow any recreational load in safety and comfort.

This Volvo 860 has custom flagpoles, and carries a smart car or trike on the bed.

We are a licensed new/used vehicle dealer and a licensed vehicle converter. Financing of new and used vehicles is available for the total package – truck and hauler body configured to your specifications. We also offer nationwide warranties on all our products – or for your existing truck.

We have learned a lot about what works well and what does not. Because we live full time in RV’s and use our own products we have practical experience, not “theories” or marketing “hype”.

We are currently custom ordering 2021 Volvo VNR 640’s and VNL Series 740, 760 and 860’s with very competitive pricing. Delivered from Volvo ready to add a bed, hitch, and title as a Motorhome.

Our modular body provides many of the benefits of our fully skirted bodies – at a much lower price point.

We specialize in towing-related products, including the Freedom Tote ( formerly Idaho Tote) shown here, and Roadmaster towing solutions for cars/trucks.

In addition to our flagship fully skirted bodies, we also produce a modular body that can be built in stages and is more economical. This body still has the high-quality construction we are known for but has slightly less storage. It is oriented towards a more “sports-utility” market. This body supports a variety of hitch types: class 4 receiver, class 5 receiver, pintle, gooseneck ball, or a suspension 5th wheel hitch. Additional information on the modular body can be found HERE.

What Makes RVH Lifestyles Unique?

We live the RVing lifestyle – all of the company Principals are presently, or have been, full-time RVers. Collectively we have over seventy years of RV experience, with over twenty-five years of full-time RV living. We have decades of experience pulling large fifth-wheel trailers with HDTs (Heavy Duty Trucks) and MDTs (Medium Duty Trucks).

The motivation behind the formation of RVH Lifestyles was the lack of centralized services and products related to the HDT lifestyle. From all aspects of the truck purchase and development to maintenance of both trucks and RVs, we offer a complete set of services to assist you in your lifestyle.

Our facilities are located in the “Heartland of America” – southeast Kansas. 

Unique smart car hauler bodies maximize available storage.
Our modular bed system carries a smart or other deck cargo. It can be built in phases. The rear boxes can optionally carry ramps in a box that bridges between them.

Our years of experience can help prevent expensive mistakes as you purchase and develop your truck project. Our products and services are competitively priced. We can build a new or used “turnkey” truck to your specifications, or we can assist you in the portions of your “DIY” project that you need help with.
