    True but living farther south than me you probably never get loads to Brooklyn or Bloomfield CT on mondays, or have to sit in Baltimore 2 days with no load lol

    I get a lot of Baltimore and Northern Virgina loads on Monday. Not a fan of anything North of VA. Don't mind Ohio or Indiana, but it is what it is.

    My point is just from what I've seen over the past couple years here the southern drivers get treated a hell of a lot better than us northern guys

    I feel ya, but the runs you guys get have better miles than the cheese of bouncing around the Carolinas. Every time I get a Baltimore run I end up with a run to NJ that the Baltimore guys didn't want. I know that is not the case, but it sure seems like it. lol

    Same size at the flat top macks with a little more head room and storage space inside, but you lose one dog box for the worthless "APU"

    Coming from a MACK mid roof, these new Internationals have no room. I don't have any good pix, but trust me, they lack in space. They should of invested a little more and got the sleepers that had more room in them. Guess that wasn't the concern when purchased.

    Hey mph a side note about these Internationals... if the shop ever goes in the computer to check a code or anything make sure your truck still idles right and the autostart works right... Bridgeport reset my computer after checking an engine code and now the truck will run 3 min and shut down no matter what, even when the autostart kicks in its 3 min then off. This is night 3 in the cold and now snow with no heat, since the batteries don't have the juice to run the heater..

    Thanks for the tip. Mostly hit Savannah shop for anything (they are slow), but send our trucks to the dealerships for anything and everything. Stay warm driver!
