Thanks everyone!

Looks like the consensus as far as sleeper trucks go is most (but not 100%) are two bunk trucks.

Thomas;

If your reason for asking is having that handsome 'lil MAN' ride along when he's 13 (or whatever age the insurance waiver per your company requires,) you most certainly can request the double bunk!!

Best wishes;

ps: He looks eager to go . . . NOW, LoL! Git'a'move'ON! ;) haha!

Thanks for that.

Yes, when he's old enough, I couldn't keep him outta my truck lol. Hel loves it when I'd bring my company rollback home for weekend on call. He calls it Big Boy. He loves it when we go out for a ride in it. Big Boy in this case is a 2020 Freightliner M2-102 Business Class extended cab with the Cummins 6.7, Allison Automatic, air brakes and a 21 foot steel rollback bed.

That's my youngest pictured there, 6 years old, and a cancer survivor. My little warrior, never would know if you seen him that anything ever happened, he just keeps smiling and laughing like any other 6 year old. I've probably learned more from him than he'll ever learn from me.

Amen Rhino!

Anytime I feel like life has dropped a big steaming pile in my lap, I look at him, shrug my shoulders and remember that there are worse things that could happen.

True that! We have to be thankful for what we have. Or don’t have.

He finished treatments December 27th and anyone on here who have had the misfortune of the whole chemo/radiation treatments know what kind of h&ll that is. August 30th will be his 3rd scan looking for any new tumors, and I'm praying for good news for the 3rd time. He nearly lost his left arm at the elbow due to how aggressive this type of cancer is. If he can fight thru all that, then me becoming a driver is nothing more than a minor inconvenience.

There is a lot of storage on the upper bunk area, as you can see. That's two large totes (the third is currently off the truck), and my large ICECO freezer up there. Also are a few boxes of spare parts and extra liquids.

The bottom bunk lifts up for even more storage under that. I carry about 1500 lbs of extra stuff on and in each truck.

PackRat, you sure you don't have a body or two hidden in there, just sayin. In keeping with my father's Italian heritage, I don't know anybody, but I know a guy who knows a guy.....

Go on YouTube and watch the Nissan commercial that aired several years ago during the Superbowl with that song. Tears every single time.

Yeah, I went and checked that out. That's an incredible commercial. Thanks for telling me about it.
