As you can with the taut-line and rolling hitches. The real advantage of the trucker's is that it provides additional mechanical advantage when you really want to cinch something down.

I'm not sure that I agree with you about being able to adjust the trucker's hitch easily.
The taut line is essentially a rolling hitch tied back on its own working end. It can be adjusted, if you pull, but will flex back, until the rolling hitch grabs.

With the Tucker's hitch, you can wrap as many loops as you like and as tightly or loosely as you like, which will keep the adjustment perfectly in place, while you tie the final half hitch to secure it.

To each, their own.
