3 Extras To Look For When Purchasing A Used Semi Truck

If you are purchasing a used semi-truck so you can work as an independent truck operator, here are three extra features to look for that will make driving around the country in your new-to-you, used semi-truck more comfortable.

#1 Wi-Fi Antenna

If you like to get online and don't want to have to pay for a huge data plan since you are pretty much always on the go, you may want to look for a semi-truck that already has a wi-fi antenna. This wi-fi antenna will make it easier for you to pick up a wi-fi signal whenever you are stopped somewhere. This will allow you to use local free wi-fi instead of having to pay for a huge data plan every month. 

#2 Expanded Window

Another feature to look for is a sleeper cab that has an expanded window. These expanded windows are often on the roof, which is a nice way to get some natural light inside of your sleeper cab. It can make your cab feel a little more like home. These roof windows in your sleeper cab can be equipped with sliding blinds or a cover so you can get dark space if you need to sleep during the day. 

In some sleeper cabs, the expanded windows may be on the side of the truck and will provide you with a better view and more light when you are in your sleeper cab. Think about how you want your sleeper cab to feel, and if you really like natural light and good views, try to find a used sleeper cab with expanded windows. 

#3 Sleeper Cab Workstation

Another feature to look for is a sleeper cab that has a small workstation in the cab. These types of cabs are set up so that you can easily flip up your bed and have a nice little workspace with a small desk and chair. The table top can flip down when needed and be locked in place when you need to get back on the road.

This can be great if you want a space to do work on your computer or even work on small projects in your downtime. It can make your sleeper cab a little more functional, which is great if you spend a lot of time on the road but have other interests that you want to attend to as well. 

Your new used semi-truck is going your home away from home, so make sure that it fits your needs and is a comfortable space when you are on the road and when you are off the road and resting. For help finding the best used semi-truck for your needs, contact a company like Arrow Truck Sales.
