Peterbilt’s new 58-in. sleeper is now in production for Models 579 and 567. The sleeper is available in low- and mid-roof configurations, the the company says it can reduce weight by up to 100 lbs.
“Peterbilt’s 58-in. sleeper is ideal for short- and regional-haul operations where less weight and a shorter wheelbase are critical,” said Robert Woodall, Peterbilt’s assistant general manager of sales and marketing. “It includes all of the amenities found in Peterbilt’s larger sleepers, including ample storage, driver comforts and exceptional fit and finish for quality rest and off-duty time.”
The new sleeper includes a full-length door to help facilitate loading personal gear from outside the truck. Additionally, full-length, integrated sleeper extenders minimize trailer gap and improve aerodynamic efficiency. Other features include a television mount, refrigerator and microwave shelf.
