It's tough when you slipseat day cabs to lug all this stuff back and forth to work every day but it must be done!

I slipseat week to week, soI understand.

I use a small backpack with wheels and a handle. I use that to schlep all my “support” stuff around with me. Easily stows in a day cab or LW sleeper.

Works fine, easy to deal with and will solve the problem for you.

Day Cab:

A tractor which does not have a sleeper berth attached to it. Normally used for local routes where drivers go home every night.

I was tempted to post the definition of schlep...haha

The backpack on wheels might be a good idea. I may end up laying over in motels a couple nights a week so I could do a personal bag and a truck bag if you will. Two bags that can be moved in one trip but one left behind in the truck, one taken in the motel.

I think the origin is Yiddish slang.

Just be careful where you use that word. If in New Orleans, you might get more than what your asking for.
