Yeah, double bunk. If I hit my head on that GD ladder just one more time...

LOL! I have hit my head on that damned thing hard enough to draw blood at least a half a dozen times. Same with the lid on the compartment over the drivers seat. I'm a slow learner..........or just slow!

As far as the storage goes. I happily gave up the storage in return for the fridge and microwave. The top bunk holds tons of stuff. I have a large suit case, duffel bag and several totes up there. I hold it all in place with the net. Top cabinet behind the drivers seat holds 8 pairs of jeans and 18 or 20 tee shirts easily. It took me awhile to figure it all out but I have tons of stuff stored in mine and it is not at all cluttered. Also, the two cabinets above the doors hold lots of stuff. You have to look at it like Tetris, see what fits where. For me it's all about cubic footage

I've been thinking about making outfits instead of storing all the clothes separately. Take pants/shorts lay a shirt, underwear, and socks on top a roll it up. I think it would take up less space that way.

That glove box over the driver's seat. Never had a problem until today. Went in the back and came back to my seat and jammed my head into it. Never even opened it, it popped open on it's own. πŸ˜‚

When I get home I'm going to experiment a little.

By the looks of some of these drivers out here, all you need is 1 pair of sweat pants, a tee shirt that is 3 sizes too small, and a worn out pair of sneakers. Socks and underwear are optional. Just wear that outfit (and sleep in it) for weeks on end!

Hehe! Just make sure that do-it-all outfit is color coordinated. Dress for success.

Oops, I meant to quote TM about the one outfit for all occasions. I’m impressed by the highly pragmatic nature of his suggestion.

I have the solution!! This would be truly unique, as I don’t recall ever seeing another driver wearing one. Just wear a toga. Ball it up or fold it, and I think one size fits most. I have strange thought lately with all the meds I’m on....

Have I mentioned that you guys suck? πŸ˜‚

With that said, I think new Volvo's must come with flip flops standard.
