Found it! The Highwayman. It had the guy from those Energizer battery commercials. OY!

Then this guy actually repainted it

How can you resist a plot like this.

In the future, most crimes start or end on the road. A new breed of law enforcers, known as "Highwaymen", utilize fantastic helicopter-equipped, high-performance tractor-trailer rigs to deliver justice when other agencies fail.

I always assumed it was an American phenomenon, but it appears to be global. I would think they use the graphic to draw attention away from how slabsidedly huge these things are... it works, now all you see going down the road is an eyesore of a graphic...

I'd rather just see a few stripes in some tasteful colors (not tan, white, and hunter green)or something. I would go with a Pantone 424 base color with a wide P376 stripe.... or maybe a fat P420 strip with a narrow 021 stripe below it... something like that.
Draw it up:D

Awesome, to take it up a notch, you should be able to drive the motorhome at about 15mph, and then drive the car on and off the platform, then you would be a real playboy.... does the car talk?
