Hi Ladies!

I'm trying to decide if I want to pursue an OTR career. One of the things I'm still debating is how I would like living in the truck for extended periods of time. So I'm just wondering, will anyone be stopping in Tulsa who would allow me to peak inside her truck? I'm curious about the lightweight and full-size trucks.

Funny side note...I actually drove to a truck stop and was going to ask one of the truckers to let me look inside. Turns out, I'm too shy to approach a total stranger and ask to look inside his/her living space :) I just thought, omg, this guy is going to think I'm some crazy lot lizard.

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

Hi Toonces,

I haven't been in a truck yet but I looked at alot of YouTube videos. I wouldn't ask a stranger at a truck stop too see inside of hus/her truck for safety reasons. You could contact a school or trucking company to see if they will let you inside a truck.

Look up Allie Knight on YouTube. She has a couple of videos that's are tours of the inside of her sleeper. Search "Allie Knight Peterbuilt Sleeper". That should bring up the one of her current truck Lazarus.

Her videos give an awesome look at what it's like to live and work in a truck. I've been watching them since Friday since I'm still stuck in this hotel. They have yet to get boring!

I've watched those. She's great! I was just wanting to get an in-person look. Thanks though!

Or you could skip the lived in look and go to a dealer and ask to peak inside a few different models.
