Western Star sleepers

1. Owner/Operator Tim Dolliver of Halifax runs this Western Star with Stratosphere sleeper for Jardine Transport Ltd of Fredericton, NB.

2. Lockhart's have this 2011 Model 4900FA on the lot.

3. It has a more modest 40 inch sleeper, but still with a big window on the passenger side only.

4. The wind is blowing - the truck is standing still.

When Western Star introduced the Stratosphere Star Light sleeper, complete with picture window and sloped walls, we forgot that other sleeper options are available.

Jardine Transport has the typical long haul highway rig with sleeper, taking a Thanksgiving Monday rest in Burnside. It runs to Ontario and the US where a roomy sleeper is a necessity.
Down the road at Lockhart Truck Center, the Western Star dealer, they were promoting a 2011 - 4900A with a 40 inch sleeper. A much more modest affair, with a big window on one side only. Incidentally it has a 500hp Cummins ISX and 18 speed transmission, so is meant for some heavy work, such as flat bed and heavy hauls where the aerodynamics are not as important.
