Steph: My dream truck

Steph: My dream truck

Dodge City, Kansas – I have found that I do some of my best thinking with a windshield in front of me. While I was over-the-road trucking this spring, I started to daydream about the different features a truck could have that would make life in a truck that much more enjoyable. Mind you, most of these things are pure imagination but it’s certainly a place to start.

  1. A holographic barista that will prepare you any coffee drink known to man (bring on the espresso).
  2. Autopilot — that’s got to be close on the trucking horizon, don’t you think?
  3. To go hand in hand with the autopilot, the driver’s seat should swivel so the driver can easily move in, out and around the seat/cab.
  4. A little more about this seat… it should also have the capabilities of a high-end massage chair — one that actually relaxes you and doesn’t leave you in a bigger pile of knots than when you started.
  5. In the sleeper, there should be a button you press that slides the solid roof of the sleeper to one side to expose a starry night.
  6. A giant flat-screen TV that folds down from the roof between the main cab and sleeper. If there’s autopilot, there’s plenty of time to catch up with your Netflix-ing.
  7. Blow a tire? A motor? Maybe an alternator? No worries — the truck will notify you when these things happen, slowly get you to safety and fix itself.
  8. An interactive motherboard that could do anything from teaching you a foreign language to reading you books (in different voices per character) to singing you a lullaby before bed, making the time over the road that much better.
  9. The ability to change colors anytime. Tuesday could be purple; but maybe by Friday you’re feeling more adventurous, and you want it to be camouflage.
  10. Wheels that turn into propellers so the truck can go underwater. This serves absolutely no purpose — just sounds super cool.

I hope that inspired you to make some adjustments to your truck or just gave you a good laugh — it’s a win in my book either way. Happy harvest!

Could have been a cheerleader back in high school but, decided to be a truck driver instead.

    I don’t see a problem with a sun roof in a sleeper. Except when your two-manning it over the road. I definitely think a flat screen dropping from the roof directed toward the sleeper would be great!! Good Ideas Steph!
