Are these lightweights smaller than the cascadia midroofs?

I can't answer that question. Maybe someone else with more knowledge can help, but I found this man showing his lightweight truck and he's 6'5" 300lbs. Granted the truck is a 2014. I have no idea how much has changed since then.

For anyone interested in storage solutions in a lightweight I ran across this video of a 2019 Freightliner yesterday.

In the video, it highlights something I forgot to mention. That carousel storage unit will be in the way when you want to get in the under-bunk storage area. That’s why the Ms Myoshi hanging storage bins are better suited & more functional for the space.

As you can see he doesn’t have much clothes, which means he goes home often. I don’t go home very much since I don’t have a physical home. I have a rolling duffle full of clothes. It gives me longer periods between washes. Once I find a rod strong enough to support the hanging bins, I’m going that route.

In terms of the mid-roof question? I’ve seen both, condos & lightweights, with the mid-roof. But the video link in CA’s post is exactly the same as mine, except I had the passenger seat removed to accommodate a dorm fridge & microwave.
