Kenworth Truck Company now is offering its Extended Day Cab and AeroCab sleepers, including Kenworth’s 38-inch AeroCab, as new options for its T800 wide hood model.
“Many oilfield, heavy haul, construction and other vocational customers operate the Kenworth T800 in wide hood configurations because of the model’s excellent durability, maneuverability and versatility,” said Mike Dozier, Kenworth chief engineer. “By adding options for Kenworth’s popular Extended Day Cab and AeroCab sleepers, including the 38-inch AeroCab sleeper with new standard toolbox doors, customers will be able to take full advantage of the Kenworth T800’s versatility while promoting driver comfort and retention.” According to Dozier, the addition of the new options further enhance the Kenworth T800, which leads Kenworth’s vocational product line.
The Kenworth Extended Day Cab runs six inches longer than standard models with the cab roof raised five inches. It provides two inches of increased leg room and room behind the wheel, 21 degrees of recline in the driver’s seat, and two cubic feet worth of extra storage behind the driver’s seat. In addition to the T800, the Extended Day Cab is available on Kenworth’s T600 and W900 models.
Suitable for vocational operations, the 38-inch AeroCab sleeper features ample headroom, standard liftable bunk, over- and under-bunk storage, 24-by-78-inch tilt-up mattress, full headliner, lockable luggage compartments, swivel reading light and separate sleeper control console.
Kenworth also has enhanced its 38-inch AeroCab sleeper by adding two 12-by-20-inch toolbox doors to provide outside access to storage space under the bunk. Kenworth’s full AeroCab offering includes the 86-inch Studio AeroCab, 72-inch AeroCab Aerodyne, 72-inch AeroCab FlatTop and 62-inch AeroCab FlatTop.
Kenworth also offers an original equipment kit to convert its AeroCab sleepers to Kenworth Extended Day Cabs. The Kenworth Extended Day Cab Conversion Kit is available for Kenworth T600, T800 and W900 models with AeroCab sleepers and can be purchased through Kenworth dealers.
