    I’m having a hard time getting all of the studying done that I need to.
    A big part of that is having to set up in the sleeper with the laptop and use the pull out desk.

    I know I can’t be the only one looking for a laptop on steering wheel desk.
    Anyone got any solutions out there? I found a few on Amazon but they don’t look well built.

    Find a small folding table at Walmart that will fit in your sleeper. Store it on the top bunk or behind the passenger seat.

    Working on a practical degree to get out of driving a truck.
    Business administration.
    I suck at learning in a traditional class room, so my goal is to learn 90% of the course work before attending college on campus.
    It’s going ok so far just wish I could spend more time getting stuff done instead of faffing off because it’s inconvenient
     
    D.Tibbitt, Speed_Drums and pavrom Thank this.

    I got both one of those bed tables and a cushion thingy that let you sit up in bed. Legs on the table fold up and I store it easily between the mattress and sleeper wall when I'm not using it. The cushion thingy I throw up on my top bunk when I'm not using it. I don't do amy college work, but find that setup much more practical when using my laptop than a steering wheel table thing. I had one of those. But found it a PITA and eventually just gave it away.

    You got that much time to get sleep or is this happening during your 34 hour reset?
