A Family Vehicle

For the first 10 years of my life, I was an only child. Then, my younger sister was born. She definitely changed our family for the better. However, after my sister’s arrival, my parents soon discovered the family needed more space. Our house suddenly became too small. In addition to our home, my parents decided the family needed a larger vehicle. So they set out to purchase a minivan. They fell in love with a blue one at a local auto dealership. The kind salesperson allowed my parents to test drive the minivan over an entire weekend. After keeping the automobile for two days, my parents were hooked. On this blog, I hope you will be inspired to begin your search for the vehicle your family will make unforgettable memories in for the next several years.

Day cabs - Day cab semis have basic designs that offer seating for you and a passenger. The day cabs don't have sleeping quarters because they are generally used for local deliveries that won't require you to sleep in the cab overnight. Day cabs have a shorter body and large mirrors that make them easier to navigate in tighter spaces. You can attach just about any trailer to a day cab. 

Sleeper semis - If you're going to be taking long-distance hauls, then you really should consider going with a sleeper semi. They have built-in sleeping quarters that are located in the upper portion of the cab. They can also have many other features aimed at keeping you comfortable on the road. Some examples can include small refrigerators and microwaves.
