    Printed on the door. I didnt own the volov at new. But my first scale on the w9 with just a duffle bag of clothes was around 20,300
    Idk about the wheelbase, all I can go on is volvo and whatever specs I get from papers and dealers. I know 70" bunk volvos start at 210, and can be ordered out to 241, without going too custom. As swift ordered many of their 670s at 212 iirc.

    This is KW W900 areo flat top sleeper that I can stand up in. The floor in the sleeper drops downs about 6 inches from the floor of the cab. That is how you get the extra height in it as well as it not being completely flat on the top. It does appear to have some upward slope to it but it is still considered by KW to be their flattop.

    Everybody has reasons and most tend to like what they own.
    Myself I have both curb sniffers and hoods, long wheelbase and short. I do all my own maintenance, so much prefer the hoods, long hoods preferably, much better access and less time working on them, depending on what you are working on.
     
    Slowpoke KW, cke, Lepton1 and 3 others Thank this.

    Looks like the North Shelly exit. That Peterbilt dealer and I have a partnership agreement in my old truck!

    It is indeed. Was delivering a load of sandblast sand off that exit about 6 miles down the road. I frequent that PFJ for free showers often as well.
     
    Tug Toy, Lepton1 and Oxbow Thank this.

    I would call that a midroof not a flat top. Here is a flat top modular sleeper. And that’s a brand new truck BTW.
