New Kenworth 40-Inch Sleeper For T880 and T680 Available for Order

Kenworth’s new 40-inch sleeper is now available for order with either the T880 or T680.

Kenworth’s 40-inch sleeper with the T880 is suitable in vocational applications that use straight trucks, such as petroleum haulers or the tow industry, and for tractors that transport flatbeds, lowboys or other trailers where length and weight are a factor. The sleeper is also a good fit in the Kenworth T680 for regional bulk haulers who prefer to operate a highly fuel-efficient tractor. The sleeper provides a 260-pound weight savings compared to Kenworth’s 52-inch regional sleeper for additional benefits.

The 40-inch sleeper has a compact, yet comfortable sleeping environment and optimal storage. A 24-inch wide by 78-inch long, liftable bunk with 90-degree tilt offers easy access to under bunk storage. The sleeper provides more than 22 cubic feet of storage space to handle gear for occasional stays in the sleeper, and has storage shelves and a cell phone cubby.
