Finally finished school and upgraded this week. My truck is a 2017 Freightliner Cascadia and I was wondering what size tv goes in the space provided? Also, what other items do you recommend putting in the truck to make life on the road fun and comfortable?

Depends on where you put the TV. I've seen people put it on the shelf above the refrigerator space and that's like 20 inch. My trainer had hers on the bottom bunk foot wall and had a 36 inch. Once saw a guy with a 42 inch he hung on the ceiling above the windshield lol don't know what year his was lol. He complained cause to test his students he had to take it down.

Of course these are condos not the prime lightweights. Could probably get a big one on the wall if you push the top bunk up.

Congrats and good luck!!!?

Congrats renegade! How do you like it so far? Did they try to push the lease option? I have heard they are one of the more pushy carriers, in that regard. Did you get your CDL through them?

Stay safe

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

Thanks Rainy. I'm not going to go all out with 42 inch. Probably just get a 19 inch smart tv and link it to my phone for YouTube and Hulu. Danielsahn...of course they did. KLLM is a lease purchase company and only about 15 percent of all the drivers are company. I'm not telling you what to do nor do I promote either side because you're going to get out of this business what you put in to it. You have to find what best works for you and take advantage of the opportunity given to you.
