Big wheels rollin', Movin On!

I loved this series as a kid for many reasons. First and foremost was it was about truckers and there was quite a bit of truth (balanced out with a healthy scoop of Hollywood bullshit) in the storylines compared to most trucking shows, films, ect. Second, I was a big fan of Claude Akins. The fact Merle Haggard did the theme song didn't hurt, either.

After the pilot they magically got a much nicer truck (first walk-in sleeper I ever saw), but with the same paint job.

Here's the pilot episode/film of Movin' On.

I wasn't necessarily an ardent fan, but I remember liking that show back in the day. And for me, growing up in the 'burbs, it was about as close as I've ever been to a 'big rig'.
