That’s different. I would think the trailer would interfere with the reception.

That was my thought too, but guess we will see. Although, my cascadias didnt have visible antenna and i got great reception.

Moving stuff from.truck to truck in the snow is going to be soooo fun

Moving stuff in or out blows, no matter the weather. Only good time is when it is a Driver’s first truck assignment.

Yeah i think ill wait and pay PSD students to do it for me. They need tge money and im lazy lol

PSD:

Prime Student Driver

Prime Inc has a CDL training program and the first phase is referred to as PSD. You'll get your permit and then 10,000 miles of on the road instruction.

The following is from Prime's website:

Prime’s PSD begins with you obtaining your CDL permit. Then you’ll go on the road with a certified CDL instructor for no less than 75 hours of one-on-one behind the wheel training. After training, you’ll return to Prime’s corporate headquarters in Springfield, Missouri, for final CDL state testing and your CDL license.

Obtain CDL Permit / 4 Days

  • Enter program, study and test for Missouri CDL permit.
  • Start driving/training at Prime Training Center in Springfield, Missouri.
  • Work toward 40,000 training dispatched miles (minimum) with food allowance while without CDL (Food allowance is paid back with future earnings).

On-the-Road Instruction / 10,000 Miles

  • Train with experienced certified CDL instructor for 3-4 weeks in a real world environment.
  • Get 75 hours of behind-the-wheel time with one-on-one student/instructor ratio.
  • Earn 10,000 miles toward total 40,000 miles needed.

Personal preference. My favorite Truck is one that doesn't break down, the left door stays closed, and the wheels keep rollin'!

internationals are sturdier. better i sulated and the suspension is much better. Both of these are like floating on a cloud compared to thw cascadia. you dont feel the wind or the drafts the same way. its like a cadillac vs a mercedes IMO. others will argue with me im sure.

I thought it was a Mercedes vs a Pinto?

Your analogies are all over the place Rainy!

I love my Frightliner/ Freightshaker. But it’s my first truck and so I have nothing to compare it with. Kinda like your first love when you were a teenager.
