First & Foremost About Our Kenworth T680 Inside Tour…
We didn’t cover everything we wanted to! There is much more to cover about our discoveries regarding storage, dishes, bowls, pots-n-pans, storage for driving and more. Stay tuned for updates about all those things. This is only the beginning.
Things we talk about in this video are notated below for your ease and convenience; a video about the ARB from their company – AND info about the SleepDog Mattress. If something is missing and you’d like more info, post a comment and ask!
EVERYTHING in the truck has to have a purpose for being there.
If it doesn’t have a purpose – it’s out.
I have worked hard to make the truck a comfortable space for the two of us. Essentially, it’s our home for 320-340 days a year! It should be comfortable and efficient.
In our opinion, being at work – in the truck – shouldn’t be like holding your breath until you get somewhere else that’s more comfortable and inviting. It should have as much “home” as it can. It’s not only our work-place… it’s our place to rest and relax too. Even if we are moving most of the time.
I honestly think that most drivers pine for home because their trucks are uncomfortable and stressful places to be. This isn’t a good thing. It’s stressful and negative stress is never a good thing. No point in adding to it, right?
Jai leaves most of the truck-putting-together process to me. I don’t mind that. It is however, amazing how much work can go into finding just the right things – of good quality – “quality” being the toughest thing to find.
My hope is that you’ll get some good ideas from our videos on these topics to help you make your truck an amazing place to work and rest. AND…
…I’m always looking for way to improve – so feel free to share what YOU have done with us.
What We’ve Learned This Past Year
We have learned that trying to go cheap turns out costing a whole lot more… than just money… in the long run.
Having something break while you’re in the middle of a six week run, with no way to replace it because you don’t have time to stop (or a place) you can get to, to shop for that replacement, is no fun.
Hence, this lesson learned (more than once) is as follows: find the best quality possible, bite the bullet and get it. Like the Bellicon… we bit the bullet, got it and have benefitted every single day since! Learn more on our Bellicon page!
Even if it’s a bit expensive, it will save you more than you spend, in the long run.
ARB: Video about the ARB Fridge/Freezer:
We purchased ours through Amazon. Look around on the web and find the best deal for you. There are some great companies out there (in America) who carry it. Shop for the best price and just go for it! You won’t be disappointed.
