PORTLAND, OREGON…Freightliner Trucks announced today that all 70-inch Mid and Raised Roof SleeperCabs for the Classic XL, Classic and FLD SD truck models are now available with a standard under bunk storage compartment as part of the integral lower bunk. SleeperCabs for the Century Class® S/T and Columbia® in 48-, 58- and 70-inch configurations and the Coronado® 70-inch SleeperCab have featured the integral lower bunk with the under bunk compartment as standard since 2003.
The under bunk storage compartment features removable partitions that can be used to arrange and separate essentials and other gear in the SleeperCab. Easy to open and close with a center-mounted, rattle-free latch, the compartment is also illuminated with flush mounted low heat/low current lamps for visibility in dim interior conditions.
The strong, durable plastic bunk tray and liners are easily cleaned, adding to the efficiency of the compartment. The bunk tray also keeps the mattress stable by trapping the mattress and keeping it centered on the bunk top. With the addition of optional black mats, interior cab noise reduction is enhanced.
“Convenience and user-friendly features are essential elements in helping to improve driver productivity,” said Alex Bernasconi, Vice President of Sales, Freightliner Trucks. “The under bunk storage compartment gives drivers more space to stow personal items or equipment, making their work environment more organized and comfortable.”
The under bunk compartment can be spec’d in two different packages: the compartment liner, removable partitions and auxiliary HVAC cover package; or the compartment liner, removable partitions, auxiliary HVAC cover and optional black mats. The latter option includes baggage door trim plates in the Coronado, Century Class S/T and Columbia truck models for a more aesthetic appearance.
