Peterbilt’s new 58-inch sleeper – ideal for weight conscious short- and regional-haul applications – is now available for order through the company’s dealer network, Peterbilt Motors Company recently announced.
The new sleeper is available for Peterbilt’s flagship on-highway Model 579 and vocational Model 567. It reduces weight as much as 100 pounds (versus an 80-inch sleeper) and is available in both low- and mid-roof configurations.
The new sleeper includes a full-length door to help facilitate loading personal gear and belongings from outside the truck. Additionally, full-length, integrated extenders help minimize trailer gap and improve aerodynamic efficiency.
Other features include a television mount, refrigerator, microwave shelf and full-length mattress.
The 58-inch sleeper goes into production during the fourth quarter.
