Many RVs have a generator on them anyways.

On a big solid truck like this, I don't see why a generator couldn't be built on as a range extender. It could just be essentially left permanently in a storage box mounted on the outside below the frame.

It would have to be a pretty substantial generator. The truck is heavy and not aerodynamic. Other than than, I don't see why it wouldn't work.

Seems like a pretty reasonable Hybrid option.
