12 foot sleeper coming to your carrier soon?

Discussion in 'Other News' started by Crassius, Sep 8, 2015.

  1. Could you see some kid fresh out of truck school working for (mega carrier swift, us express, cr England blah blah blah). Getting this dream ride.

    Wake up, no mega will let a greenhorn drive a 240k truck just to fill and keep a seat.

    More like the specialist pulling team hauling jet engines. Or a stepdeck, furniture movers.

    Its a nice pipe dream for those who are just starting. From a business point of view. One wreck of this vehicle is worth three trucks a company could have rolling.

    Why would they buy one when they can have 3 drivers.

    Swamp land in Nebraska anyone?
     
    flood and dog-c Thank this.

    They said that back when I started driving when #### near everyone drove a cabover, a 265 inch wheelbase, was a long truck.

    Just read some adds from a company (that curiously didn't admit who they were) that is including a free TV in every truck(!!!) with DirectTV.

    Anything to get meat in the seat.

    No dishes, no bills, no chores, no lawn.

    It's not home, it's a man-cave!

    If you can squeeze a toilet/shower into a factory sleeper that would be awesome.

    We already have fridges and microwave.

    I can't imaging needing twelve feet of sleper though to accomplish that.
