Sept, 2015 Kenworth’s new 76-inch mid-roof sleeper for the Kenworth T680 and T880 is now in production, the company announced.
The new sleeper was announced for the T680 and T880 at the Mid-America Trucking Show earlier in the year and was made available as an option in June. The 76-inch mid-roof sleeper is designed for bulk tank, flatbed and other truck operators who prefer a more aerodynamic lower roof, lightweight truck with the comforts of a 76-inch sleeper.
The sleeper offers a weight savings of 100 pounds, according to Kenworth, which allows for more payload capacity. The sleeper has 6 ½ feet of headroom for taller drivers, a liftable lower bunk and side storage towers with space to hang clothes.
The back wall can be configured with an optional upper bunk for team drivers or a back wall sleeper storage unit. Also available are a premium sound system and mount for a flat screen TV.
Both the Kenworth T680 and T880 can now be configured with the 76-inch mid-roof sleeper, 52-inch regional sleeper, or day cab. The T680 also is available with the 76-inch high-roof sleeper.
