I guess another don't is;

Don't have an incompetent friend that's off taking a leak while your trying to launch. We always have someone sitting in the driver's seat while we are launching. Sorry to see it Gino and yeah, it could of been worse.

I agree!! Kenworths hold the road better. Aluminum cab won't rust like your stamped steel and easier to get in and out. We don't want you falling out of the driver seat

What model would be comparable with the Sportchassis? Does Kenworth have a medium duty? Do they have a luxury line? I know they have great trucks for hauling pigs and cows. but do they have a model that is more of a conversion?

I understand backing in that far to float the boat off the trailer but what is the purpose of backing under the dock? does this keep the truck from floating away.

I just ordered a t800w with the new 600 Cat for pulling my lowboy and was will impressed by the Kenworths when shopping for trucks. It took alot for me to go with another brand since my dad has been running Mack's since the 60's.

Does Kenworth offer a medium duty crew cab?
