Not quite the same, but for my 60th was treated to a session of driving  a Renault tractor unit plus 40 ft tri axle trailer somewhere in Lincolnshire.  Performed perfectly through the 16+? gearbox and roundabouts, but disaster at trying to reverse into tight corners.  But it was pouring down and couldn't see from the mirrors (my excuse)!

Move to the USA and not only have access to Peterbilts and other similar beasts, but masses of Subarus and the strong likelyhood they will get the new STi.  Also get away from the Brexit fiasco!
