    Wth is up with the new team trucks? The sleeper is the same size as the FLD's I use to team in and that was a tight space. For a while we were buying those nice condo sleeper trucks, now some of our drivers will be squished together in a midroof for 2 weeks?

    Note to corporate: Our drivers are getting bigger, not smaller.

    That should be nice and cozy waiting in Rialto for hours to get dispatched. Isn't sad enuff they make team drivers share a room when they get sent to motel.

    From experience, that condo cab was just wasted space. The sleeper is the same width as the midroof and didn't have a second bunk anyway. The midroof had better storage closets too.

    That's why the one sleeping stayed in the truck with it running, they don't track team idle time. That way the one awake could watch tv and not worry about waking the other up.

    Atleast they have shelves. The older Columbia I was in before hanging up on teaming was just a shell with a mattress.

    RTO won't but SAC always gave us separate rooms. We always asked when we were being sent to the hotel, worst they could say was no.
