Meet BigCat Trucker

Modern-Day Traveler With Swagger Explores America


Meet the evolution of the trucking industry -- Rick Sylvester, aka BigCat Trucker. Born and raised in the great city of Houston, this Texas boy is on a journey to show the world how to do it BIG!

In 2009, BigCat Trucker began his venture into the trucking industry and chronicled his entire journey through his YouTube channel, The BigCat Trucker Show. The trucking industry quickly embraced BigCat's unique style and honest, practical advice, and soon word began to spread of the new kid on the block making big waves in the industry.

Propelled by the support of his newfound "trucker family," BigCat caught the attention of the company he was driving for (one of the largest trucking companies in the United States). They appointed BigCat as their spokesperson, helping him to reach an even bigger audience with his one-of-a-kind mix of trucking, travel and all things big! Now BigCat is taking his message of "Go Big or Go Home" to the next level with a new web series on

When he is not trucking, you can find BigCat enjoying his favorite pastimes of saltwater fishing, barbecuing and spending time with his wife and 2 children. He resides in Harlingen, TX.
