Not going to work unless you are doing some specialized hauling. I believe that the truck will be too heavy. I would have to know the scale weight before a decision can be made. If it is more than say 23k full of fuel you can not haul most loads. That truck would be better for those loads that are light in weight but you would have to have a dedicated styrofoam account... LOL

In the listing, it says "Front Axle Weight 13K,, Rear Axle Weight 40K". If that's scale weight, you can't drive it off the lot already.

Errol, those numbers are what those axles are rated to be able to carry.

Thanks. But with that big hotel room stuck on the back, I wasn't really sure.

That's one sexy truck right there, yessirry! If I was thinking of living on the road like that though, I'd drive company and then buy a motorhome that I stored in a vehicle and boat storage lot. Or store the thing near the home terminal and hook up at an RV place or go camping. You could get yourself a nice RV for that price.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

I always get a kick out of watching people back those super sleeper trucks at tight docks and truck stops.
