    They have collision avoidance and lane departure by Bendix. There is a forward camera and a driver facing camera on the right side blindspot sensor. They say they dont use it so we covered it with tape

    Sleepers are Ultra loft. Very tall.They have factory installed refrigerators and power invertors. There are 6 wall outlets. We bring a microwave. There is a shelf for that. They have APU for when you are sitting which we never are but some run wild teams do use.The bed is odd size. We order oursheets from Peterbilt. We use a 3 inch memory foam topper.

    The bed is referred to as 3/4 bed. I bought a 3 inch memory foam topper also. I just use a flat full size jersey knit sheet. The foam keeps it from sliding off
