UPDATE: Big Rigs was on the ground for the three full days of the Perth Truck and Trailer Show.

In addition to the trucks there was a huge model trucks display, in fact the largest of its kind in the world.

There was also some great truck and trailer displays and innovative products on display.

We caught up with Westrac's Peter Calligaro who told us he had championed the new HD model along with Goldstar Transport owner Sean Carren.

We did a walk around to show you what it was like at the truck show.

LATER: CHECK out the first pics from the Perth Truck and Trailer Show below.

This years show had good attendance said show director Peter Woods.

Popular this year was World's Toughest Trucker contestant Rodney Johnston who lives in WA.  Rodney spoke to Big Rigs at the show and you'll be able to read the full interview in the next edition.



On display were new Euro 6 models from Scania, Cat Trucks' new HD model, new MAN TGX cab over and Western Star's new medium duty truck.

Plus there was a huge model trucks display, the biggest ever in Australia and kids fun zone that attracted a lot of attention.

Add to that plenty of innovative attractions in the parts and accessories market, including camper vans, and you had one great show!
