I made it to Seattle with a single pup and now got a set but when I got there and dropped the trailer off I got word from a fleet manager that if I prefer I could switch to one of there Mack pinnacle but it's a day cab. Well I am going to let you guess what I decided to do........ Stay with the Freightliner Cascadia sleeper or switch to Mack pinnacle daycab...... Title is the hint

Day Cab:

A tractor which does not have a sleeper berth attached to it. Normally used for local routes where drivers go home every night.

Fleet Manager:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Can someone clear this up? So did Chris W have a Mack anthem loose the anthem, get a Cascadia sleeper, and give it up for a pinnacle? I really like Mack I think the bulldog is awesome and the anthems are really cool looking but if he does long haul cross country why is he trading a sleeper for day cab? No disrespect just a actual question.

OOS:

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.

A lot of his posts don't make sense. I don't care enough to ask.

Hay, D/E;

In pulling doubles (ie: why he's referencing pups, it's 1/2 the double,) it's more conducive in a day cab , obviously for the 'length' reasoning. Many companies that do cross country solo with doubles, will put their driver up in a hotel room as needed. Hopefully, Chris will stop back in to confirm or deny 'HIS' arrangements, though. I could be wrong; he may have to get a 'highway hammock.'

Yep, I'm partial to the Mack's as well... second to the Peterbilt such as PJ's !

Be safe! Learn lots.

Doubles:

Refers to pulling two trailers at the same time, otherwise known as "pups" or "pup trailers" because they're only about 28 feet long. However there are some states that allow doubles that are each 48 feet in length.

Where've you been, Chris??

Sleepless in Seattle??????? I mean, if you opted for the daycab, I get that.

Yet I still stand with your decision, man! Get a hammock ~!

Hope all is well;
