I would love one of those for some of the places they think we should deliver meat to in Los Angeles.

That is nice Big T. We’re getting 20s into 7030, all in “Wally Blue”. I’ll post a picture soon...I will however miss the LW with 600k on it I’ve been tooling around in...nimble and highly maneuverable in close quarters.

I got to move in to a 2020 Freightliner. It doesn't have a trolley break, but other than that it seems pretty decent. More space inside compared to my international.

That must be one of the new colors for Swift. I know that they are getting some grey ones, but I haven't seen the golden colored ones. Must be some of the first issued. Any other colors in the making?

It's a gray one. The sun is reflecting off of it.

I was guessing it was a gold paint scheme, too. Neat how the sun had that effect. I wonder if it will turn into any other shades of the rainbow?

Good luck with your new set of wheels that you earned!smile.gif

At least I know that my eyes aren’t playing tricks on me. Does it come with a fridge?

What about an inverter to go along with a fridge? TV hook up?

If so, what size inverter? So many questions. Just curious.

Yes it has a fridge, tv mount with antenna. The inverter is an 1800 watt inverter. There is also a cubby where you could put a microwave.

Congrats! I've got the same truck (2019) but in Schneider livery. I love it overall. They come with a great memory foam mattress too.

G-Town, the new ones seem slightly more maneuverable to me.

I did think the new ones had less storage than my 2016, but it's so nice inside I almost don't care. Good Luck with yours, and watch out for the phantom flashers!
