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.
“Peterbilt’s new 58-inch sleeper is a perfect fit for customers in applications where a shorter wheelbase and less weight are important, such as tanker and flatbed operations,” said Robert Woodall, Peterbilt Assistant General Manager of Sales and Marketing. “Additionally, it has all of the driver-pleasing amenities found in Peterbilt’s larger sleepers, including ample storage, quality fit and finish and numerous driver comforts.”
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.
