Another of the many truckers’ rigs I took a closer look at during the Guilty by Association Truck Show in late September, Jim and Carol Steffey’s 2016 Kenworth W900L stood out in part for the top-bottom two-tone paint with minimal horizontal striping between — and the overall clean, simplified look on offer.


Not too shabby, right?

The team-driving pair, based in Frederickburg, Pa., haul for Lanita Specialized out of Mt. Aetna, nearby between Harrisburg and Allentown along I-78. As they explain in the brief video above, with a variety of angles on the exterior of the unit, the company owner involved the drivers in spec’ing this one with a choice of sleeper — this one’s the 86-inch studio sleeper option with couch/bed and more — down to the paint color and design.

Jim’s been with Lanita for about five years, he says, Carol having joined him around two years into it after a nursing career.
