I have a 2019 International.

What is the "intended" purposs of each compartment?

I will post pictures if I can figure out how.

If I am standing looking to the back of the sleeper bert we have

To the right: 1: Three "cabinets" with elastic netting. Possibly as a type of storage for food/folded clothing?

2: A "Step" that has about a 3 ft open section, no cords. A bar that could be used for hanging clothes? the space above that has a strap.

To the left:

Another 3ft open space, no cords. A bar that could possibly be used for hanging clothes?

2: What looks to be a tv mount.

3: A 2 ft of open space, some form of electric connection, a drawer, a flat surface, and surface area with a strap.

After you "move in", you will move things around a few times and create your own "purpose" for each compartment. There are specific appliances that are designed to fit in certain spaces. Refrigerators and microwaves are the most common. Its kind of like the cabinets and drawers in your kitchen or bathroom, figure out what works for you.

In my FL the flat surface with a strap is for the microwave.

My 2017 Internatonal has an open 3ft space behind the passenger seat which is for the refrigerator.

On the drivers side the step protrudes from a 3 ft cbainet door. the bar above is the handle to get the top bunk by using the step.


Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

You can pretty much use the space as you see fit. I have 2 Wardrope cabinets. I certainly don't need two. I use totes for food items and folded clothing I store in one of them. You will figure out what works for you over time. I also pull the totes out and use as a table top.
