Since I will be upgrading to my own truck very soon I would like to revisit a question I asked months ago before I started CDL training (and I was told I was being silly for asking and that I was putting the horse before the cart (I guess the commenter didn’t know my determination and drive 😁)).

My question is this: what do you wish you had on your very first truck that you didn’t have? Anything and everything you can think of. I will be going home for Thanksgiving and can hit some good sales while I’m there.

Thanks and be safe!

Honestly, extra cushion for the mattress. A crock pot, refrigerator, and one of those small handheld vacuums. And on those resets, I always told my wife, " dang, I wish I would have put a tv in here."

CDL:

  • 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.

Nope Old School sure don't. I remember seeing something about it. I'll have to check it out. I just saw 635 and KS 32 and 42nd street and it sounded like Kansas City. I was born there but my parents brought me to Michigan as a young child and abandoned me 32 years later. My mom moved to Kansas City after my dad died so I got to be a little familiar with it.
