Peterbilt Motors Co. said that is new 58-in. sleeper is now available for order through its dealer network.
The sleeper, designed specifically for weight-conscious short- and regional-haul applications, can be spec’d on the company’s flagship on-highway Model 579 and vocational Model 567. It reduces weight as much as 100 pounds (versus an 80-in. sleeper) and is available in both low- and mid-roof configurations.
“Peterbilt’s new 58-in. 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 sleeper features a full-length door to help facilitate loading personal gear and belongings from outside the truck and full-length, integrated extenders to help minimize trailer gap and improve aerodynamic efficiency.
Other features include a television mount, refrigerator, microwave shelf and full-length mattress.
