My biggest gripe with the Peterbilt 579 is no storage. No place for a microwave in a 2016... That changed with the 2017 but you loose storage.

Now that I've almost gotten all the gremlins exterminated it's about time to turn it in. *sigh* Although, I'm looking forward to some of the creature comforts thw newer trucks have. Especially all the goodies on the 2019-2020 Freightliners.

Ugh, microwaves... The 2017 Pete I have, I had to wedge the smallest microwave you could buy into this hole and then put blocks under it before bunging it so I can open the door and use the darn thing. Whoever thought up that lets put the microwave spot inside a plastic area is a moron.

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

If it’s a condo with two bunks, strap in to the underside of the top bunk.

It's a Freightliner Matthew. After living in the top bunk of a FL for the last 10 weeks with all my stuff around me, this thing feels palatial especially with the top bunk latched up against the back wall. Cheers, Kelly

You lucked out, what year is it? Also, guessing it's an autoshift? Yea, I remember upgrading to my own truck, its definitely roomier than just the top bunk for me. Still wish I had a freightliner for the better space. Or at least an ultraloft Pete

I did luck out Matthew, 2018 FL with a bit over 92k miles now and yes... autoshift, which I really like. You can shift manually if necessary but oh so nice not to have to run through the gears especially in traffic.

I can only dream of autoshift for now. Seems me and Ol' Dirty Gertrude will be stuck with each other for a while longer. Although, I am on the "List" for a new(er) truck!

278k miles on mine, well be together for a good bit before I get the opportunity to upgrade to something else. Good chance it'll be an autoshift when I do upgrade though, we're starting to get all the miles used up on the manuals and ship em out now.
