    Does it have room for a refrigerator and computer.?
    One driver I talked to said he had the passenger seat removed because there's very little room to store anything. He put a refrigerator where the passenger seat was.

    We had a break down in Louisiana and still had plenty of money to get a nice hotel room.
    Once you learn the ins and outs there is no reason not to have money for breakdowns and being comfortable.

    Those companies that want to lease to newbies are blood suckers. They take all the responsibilities and put it on you. If you have to live without an apu just do it.

    Anyone who leases a truck doesn't have the funds to be a real double O and get a truck on their own. Hang around get that safe good experience and build a good career

    No, but there's storage on top of the sleeper and cab. Also I have a laptop and mostly play hack and slash game so playing with a control is enough, and I cant wait to play the new Resident Evil. I haven't got time to download and play since were always on the road.

    I drove a "lightweight" truck on my last job running tanker. As the longest I was ever out in three years was 5 1/2 days it was ok. But that extra 17" of space difference would have been a major no-no if I stayed out longer. Having a place to hang up some clothes and shelves for more stuff is the only way to go otr. they are so small that the sleeper curtains hang right in front of the mattress.

    company solo drivers typically get the lightweight trucks. All trucks have APUs snd you DO NOT have to lease right out of training. I personally recommend all new drivers go company for a while before the go lease. It’s important just to get used to the concept of being a solo trucker for a while before handling a lease.

    Why would you want to work for a bottom feeder like Prime?

    Prime offers some of the best pay and bonuses to it's Company Drivers in the Reefer side of the industry. I don't know where you got that information.......oh wait.....you read it somewhere on the internet......got it. I know several Prime Company Drivers that make good money. Which Top Feeder do you work for?

    You must be a recruiter for Prime. They pay so well that they have to bring in new driver's by the bus load every week. Prime is nothing but a scam. And they have been scamming newbies for years. P
