Can it be?  I've run through all the pics posted from Macungie and didn't see a single Hayward Mack.  There must have been at least one there....

They had trucks shoved into every corner so there's probably trucks that didn't get photographed.

I wonder why they didn't bring the Hayward designs back to Macungie?

Aluminum frames wouldn't hold up to 1 year on Pennsylvania roads? Aluminum doesn't have a good enough fatigue cycle for our potholes? Still not sure what defines as a Hayward design. Longer hood? Too many tight twisty turns? Bridge laws here allow for more weight on a shorter wheelbase? Western hood is probably just an attempt at driver comfort and axle weight rating distribution? With allowance for longer engine? Maybe the Big 6 was gonna go out west but they canned it along with Hayward?

They built the Valueliner/RS600 and superliner at Macungie I dont think the Cruiseliner was built there... I do agree that they should have continued to build nicer OTR trucks. it seams that is the time when Pete and KW really pushed their way to the eastern markets.

I saw your R but didn't see the Superliner.  R looks great, BTW.
