by Truck West

DENTON, Texas – Grab a pillow and get comfy – Peterbilt has the bed for you.

The 58-inch sleeper is now in production for the company’s flagship aerodynamic Model 579 and vocational Model 567, and will be available in low- and mid-roof configurations, while reducing weight by up to 100 pounds.

“Peterbilt’s 58-inch sleeper is ideal for short- and regional-haul operations where less weight and a shorter wheelbase are critical,” said Robert Woodall, Peterbilt assistant general manager of sales and marketing. “It includes all of the amenities found in Peterbilt’s larger sleepers, including ample storage, driver comforts and exceptional fit and finish for quality rest and off-duty time.”

The sleeper includes a full-length door, integrated sleeper extenders, a TV mount and a refrigerator and microwave shelf.

“The sleeper was designed with extensive research and customer interviews to help ensure every inch of space was considered for a layout that was both practical and premium,” said Scott Newhouse, Peterbilt chief engineer. “Operators will enjoy the full-length mattress and abundant storage areas, including the cabinets under bunk and back wall. The new 58-inch sleeper is designed with an open, spacious feel that drivers expect from a Peterbilt sleeper. It’s thoughtfully engineered.”
