    Midroofs have plenty of room, built in refrigerators, APUs, and inverters.

    I don’t know the penalty is on ending a lease early, I can say, unlike many leases out there, this is NOT a walk away lease. So that tells me if you sign the lease, they expect you to finish it. Unlike other places they don’t let just anyone with a heartbeat lease a truck. I know of two people that are company drivers, that wanted to transition into a lease, and they turned them down. I waited 6 months before I switched to the lease. I ran my company truck, as if it was a lease truck, I kept track of all my numbers, and knew I could successfully transition into a lease and be successful.

    There are several drivers here who are on their 2nd and 3rd lease. I personally put .12 cents every mile into my maintenance account, instead of the .10 required. In 4.5 months I already have over $5K built up, and that is after paying for PMs and other service.

    I can only speak for myself, but I couldn’t be happier here.

    Made it to Lodi, California, I’m going to get in a reset, and I’m only 31 miles from my delivery on Sunday night. I am pre planned on a load 7 miles from my delivery for Monday morning that’s going to Denver for Wednesday morning.

    Good deal, where do you live? Are you getting home every week? What type of miles are you averaging on the SW fleet? Feel free to post your experiences on here.
