Was curious what the difference is between a Condo and a light weight truck, I assume the condo is bigger but not sure.

Have you taken a gander over at this thread?

An In-depth Look Inside My LW Truck (a Must See!)

The photos aren't showing up, but there are descriptions. Perhaps Daniel B. has the authority to fix the links in his post. There are some other threads here talking about them too if you use the search bar above. Otherwise, there are videos on YouTube that can give you a visual as to what you might be looking for.

Lightweights are considerably smaller and many people take the passenger seat removed for more room. The condo is a full size cab with 2 bunks.

Hey Brent, here's a link to a thread where Miss Myoshi took a video of the inside of her lightweight truck at Prime. Maybe it will be helpful.

Here is one of the lightweights I drive. Perfect Walmart Dedicated truck; setback axle and sloped nose. Money truck; not pretty but gets the job done with an A+ rating.

BTW, thanks for the props Brent.

Here’s why I took the lightweight over the condo. .05 cents more per mile plus fuel bonuses. Yes, it’s considerably smaller. The bunk is a twin instead of a full that comes in the bottom bunk of a condo. The bunk is right behind the drivers seat.

The passenger seat was already removed when I got it. I have a small dorm sized fridge & a 700w microwave on top of that. They both get the job done. It come with 2 over-head cabinets for storing my food & eating supplies. It has a wrap around curtain across the windshield for privacy & space. If it’s too sunny outside & I need to sleep it has another curtain that turns the bunk area into a dark cave.

I have a freightliner, the truck in Ms Myoshi’s video is an international.

Actually, the condo bottom bunk is a twin XL. The extra space in a condo comes from the extra cabinets between the front seats and the bunk.

With my wife traveling with me full time, I need the condo! It sure would be nice to have a full size bed though. With her and I both in the same bunk, it's a good thing we like each other.

Hahaha!! When I was in Rainy’s truck... Ok. Now I get it. She replaced her mattress with a bigger one. It felt double the size of this one. Much more cushion for sure. Thanks for clarifying.
