I have heard a lot of jokes about Volvo trucks. Particularly autos. Particularly white ones. Maybe even with a Slavic driver inside. I also heard horror stories about maintenance, but being a driver, and not a mechanic, and leaving aside all urban legends and superstitions, I can only say: what a nice truck is this Volvo! Every inch of interior is a solid demonstration of exceptionally advanced engineering. Of course, it is only my opinion, but believe me, this table alone makes such a huge difference! And yes, the top bunk is not smaller like in Cascadia, it is just as wide as the lower one.

If you are a driver, why would you care for scary stories about the Volvo maintenance and repairs? You like the space, you like the drive, enjoy.

That is exactly my point. I see an identic situation with motorcycles: my Kawasaki Vulcan 1500 is technically much better and more advanced then any Harley, and I enjoy riding it. But Harley is a beautiful bike with history and a character, just like one of those square Peterbilts with chrome pipes... you get the idea.

Glad to hear you're enjoying it. I've been watching *a lot* of truck tour videos lately. Nice placement of that window across from your table, too!

I hope things are going well for you Andrey. I am not Slavic, but I do enjoy my Volvo.

I am not Slavic

And it is definitely an advantage! When you drive around in a Volvo truck, everybody say "what a nice truck," but if a Russian, Ukrainian, it doesn't really matter, climbs inside a Volvo, everybody, including your fellow moderator here, starts laughing: another Russian! Look at his Volvo, look at his flip-flops :-)

On another note, I am heading home, feeling tired, but glad that I got this job. I will post more when I get home. It may be interesting for some people as a strictly insider's information - Americans do not drive in this company :-)

Is this what you said:

I'm glad for you, but I would eat healthier.
