    Where would you put the CPAP in a lightweight truck? I know there’s no shelves behind the drivers seats in a LW so where would you put it?

    There's usually a spot under the bunk.

    I'm just worried that would all be filled up with all my luggage and clothes and stuff cause I think the APU is under there too.

    I don’t have a lightweight truck, but at home I put it on the floor next to my bed so my wife doesn’t have to hear it. That’s work in a truck.

    They make some Travel CPAPs they are extra small no humidifier and it just CPAP. Not BiPAP, you can also get a extra long air hose if that would help. Maybe up to 8 feet long

    IMO, Lightweight trucks are made for the occasional overnight driver or home weekly. You do not want one for full blown OTR. I don't think the extra few pennys per mile are worth it. Prime sure likes to push them though. They will probably say something like, " If you want a condo sleeper, you'll need to become a lease op. I do not know that as a fact. I'm just speculating. Nothing against Prime. : )

    Yeah, i'm hoping the'll be accommodating since it would be for a medical issue. I know some people that got Condo's right out of the gate when upgrading, so i'm hoping they put the request in my file somewhere and that it gets sent to my fleet manager.
