gti trucks are spec'd decent. tripack apu, in cab fifth wheel release, air bag gauge, nicer air ride seats
heartland trucks are indeed bare bones. all cheap midroofs, wouldn't want to spend a few extra dollars on something as trivial as driver comfort! the internationals have either a bunk heater or a battery pack type apu. the shakers have opti idle.
however they have bought new Cascadia condos and even 500 brand new kw T680s! I'm surprised mike gerdins butt didn't permanently clench shut when he saw the bill
