    Yes I have one a 2011 one of the nicest freight shakers that I ever drove. I just like a wide cab. I would like to check out the new T 700 but I like the the dd15 and the jury is still out on the new Paccar motor.

    As far as company trucks go...Maverick trucks are nice, I haven't been in the new Cascadia's yet though.

    I have driven 2 different company trucks...Schneider and Maverick.

    The differences...Schneider went ALL THE WAY on the little things that make the driver more comfy.

    Number 1 thing...the seats, the seats in the Schneider trucks are the VERY BEST truck seats available...these seats have more of the air bags that inflate so the driver can adjust the seat in more ways...and the air bags are properly placed in the seats...THEY WORK.

    The seats in Maverick trucks (up to 2007 models) are terrible IMO...not comfy at all, they make my lower back hurt unless I use a back support (the ones you see in the truck stops).

    There is no more important piece of equipment in a truck than the seat...

    My brother-in-law just got a new job at the Freightliner plant in North Carolina as a shift boss. He told my wife and I that they are starting to make the Class 8 trucks there again, don't know in what numbers yet, because sales were down on account of all the crappy stuff coming out of Mexico and losing all that money to warranty work.
