Thanks Greg. ;) If I was closer I'd have been able to read the model # on the door. ;D

I learned to tell the difference with that little vent on the hood. Itís longer and curves down on the VNL.

I saw an ABF Kenworth T680 sleeper, brand new.  The sleeper cab was huge, pulling a set of pups through west of Salina, Kansas on I-70.

It could be from the looks of it.

Thatís very interesting. They discontinued the sleeper teams up in the PNW down to Cali but still had them running up there. I wonder if they are running more wild now and ended up down there. Or maybe ABF is trying sleepers in a different lane.

I wonder if the new KW's will be at the expense of Mack or Freightliner

Also spotted what looked to be a white Pitt Ohio Hino straight truck sitting in the Ocean View GSP rest area on a trip to Wildwood NJ this afternoon. :-\
Hi Charley. The white Hinos are non-CDL trucks. Iím not sure if the long-term plan but all of our latest newest straight trucks have 28í x 13í6 bodies compared to 24í or 26í x 12í6 on the previous ones. Iím thinking the Hinos, along with the Sprinters, will be used in part to serve customers that are not accessible with the larger straight trucks. My terminal recently re-added a Sprinter to the fleet after going several years without one.

Thatís correct. D=Diesel, S=Straight truck, NS=Non cdl Straight truck. T=Trailer, HT= Heated Trailer. An R suffix is used on rack trailers, while an L suffix is on liftgates. Itís a pretty straight frontward system but I still get a kick out of how they continue to ID the diesels in tractors.
