Dec. 9, 2015

Peterbilt’s lightweight, full-featured 58-inch sleeper is now in production for the company’s flagship aerodynamic Model 579 and vocational Model 567. Available in low- and mid-roof configurations, the new sleeper can reduce 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 new sleeper includes a full-length door to help facilitate loading personal gear from outside the truck. Additionally, full-length, integrated sleeper extenders minimize trailer gap and improve aerodynamic efficiency.
