    I've never seen anything like this without putting a 120" ARI sleeper on the back. Skip to 5:10 mark to see the shower.

    You don’t have to turn down many loads. And it for sure would be really nice to have no more truck stop showers and be able to crap in peace oooo I’m dreaming about it

    If you get tailgated just press the poo release valve . Would be great, i already got a nasty toenail fungus from 20 years of truck stop showers. A buddy of mine has serious health problems with shifted bladder and kidneys, doctors told him was caused by holding pee for too long after many years otr.

    You can sponge bath anywhere. And take a crap in almost anyone's front yard when they're not looking.

    A kitchen is where it's at.

    Who knows? My bud got good deal on new truck but truck is heavy. In 4 months he has 3 loads cancel due to over gross and shipper not willing to lower load.
    Calculate lost time and revenue.
    I like comfort too but truck isn't RV

    your right they are not an RV but there are also not meant for general freight. we use them for specialized freight. Most of our loads are lighter usually around 25-27 K lbs. so with an average weight of 26K lbs for the tractor and a gross weight of around 53K lbs empty it works for us.
