Dang and I thought my truck was trying to kill me. At least mine hasn't thrown sharp objects at me lol.

I love my international for the same reasons you explained. When I was having all the issues with the CMS my dm started talking about a different truck and I just said we should probably get this one fixed.

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Haha! i hate change so i really hated it at first. i also dont have a place for the litter box now. in the cascadia i took the door off a lower cabinet.

i like the storage that hangs under the bunk at both ends, but it makes putting a microwave under the bunk impossible. do you have any tricks or tips for the international?

i keep finding stuff. like the space above my head stored the owners manuals...when i pulled them out i was like HEY! a built in paper towel holder! i used a bungee cord on the FL for that lol

I was recently in my boyfriends truck and when we got out, he asked if i locked the door. i didnt, i figured he had. so he locked the door from the outside...how soon i forget. the FL has manual door locks, the international has power ones. LOL when i laughed about he he scoffed and replied "snob" and pushed me. lol

thank god prime is buying Volvo now cause i dont think i could go back to a FL. hahaha
