    How big is the sleeper? A rig like that almost begs for a team, but a 39” mattress won’t fit two people.

    It'll fit two..if they're skinny.

    If she's fluffy, climb on top.

    I could see that, though alittle shorter @ 4 skids. With the 3.5 as well, the overhang seems excessive (load balance). Add airtabs & sumo springs might sound additions. Good idea though, decently thought out.

    1st one I've seen, will look forward to performance updates and look for others to emulate this & see where it goes (as a trend or a dead end).

    We pay cash for our materials. No debt.
    Recently read in a Dave Ramsey discussion that he ( edit, he being Steve )thinks it's okay to stiff creditors. ( If I read it right.)
    I have NO RESPECT for people who stiff people, or play the system, then act like they're doing well because they want you to think they're a genius or something.
    Prior to reading that, I thought Steve was an alright guy.

    Dave is for people paying their debt. But do not pay the debt collector that buys bad debt. If it goes that far, try to pay the original creator.

    Yes, pay the original debt. What did they do to get stiffed ?
    Except in cases of a dispute, fraud etc. Which should be settled in court. And the courts findings should be respected.

    My post was worded poorly. I edited it.

    As I think about my post I wonder if I need to apologize.
    It added nothing to the value of the discussion and sounds like an attack on Steve.
    I've lost money in business to people who have looked for loopholes and gamed the system. And to those who didn't honor a courts decision.
    So these people infuriate me.
    As I reread this thread, the "what debt" comment stood out.
    Well, its easier to have money if you skip on prior commitments.
    So, if I'm out of line , I apologize.

    A team just won't fit... not really even close. We have to have a lot more than just a bigger mattress for a team... a lot more room for personal gear, food, etc.

    We went the other way, removing the passenger seat to make room to move the refrigerator and microwave out of the bunk area to make more/better space for personal gear. It also gives us a better place for all the Qualcomm gear.

    These are optimized for a solo driver and making money... they can't be designed to properly have a team AND still remain under 10,001 GVW.

    Dave Ramsey wouldn't know how to run an expedite company. We pay for all our materials within 30 days. My wife and Load One think I'm an alright guy... that's good enough for me... I can't please everybody!
