About the Peterbilt 567
The Peterbilt 567’s expansive windshield and cab-mounted mirrors promise you visibility in every direction. The pod-mounted headlamps and sloped Metton hood provide exceptional visibility at night and in heavily congested areas. Additional stunning exterior features include: a bright bumper, grille bars, metal hood latches, and polished rocker panels, and a lightweight cab designed for corrosion resistance and durability.
The appeal of the Peterbilt 567 extends to the interior as well. At the driver’s seat you’ll find premium, adjustable leather seats with accent stitching. The interior also features a black dash top and wood-finish trim. The audio and cruise controls are conveniently located within reach of the angled, dash steering wheel. All important gauges are clustered together to provide easy accessibility for the driver. Additionally, the manufacturer made sure to leave plenty of legroom.
It is important to mention that the Peterbilt 567 was built with an emphasis on safety. Starting with cabin entry, the stair-style steps are equipped with non-slip tread and knurled grab handles for extra grip. To help with visibility, this sleep truck contains a SmartNav display that provides the rearward footage of exterior cameras. While you’re on the road, the 6S6M Anti-Lock Braking Technology uses onboard wheel sensors to adjust brake pressure on individual wheels to prevent wheel slippage and lock-ups. The advanced collision mitigation helps reduce rear-end collisions. All in all, you can rest assured knowing that the systems in place will work to protect you and keep you safe.
The Peterbilt 567 sleeper environment is truly a home away from home. It was designed with luxury and comfort in mind. The sleeper cab is available in the following lengths: 44”, 58”, 72”, and 80”. The 80” sleeper offers the following amenities:
- LED lighting
- Shelving for microwave
- Wood-trim storage compartments and cabinets
- Desk space
- Brackets and power outlets
- Shelving for a 22” flat panel TV
The 72” and 58” sleepers come with similar conveniences. Being on the smaller side, the 44” sleeper saves valuable weight by reducing excess space. In regard to the sleeping space, the 80” sleeper provides a 42” bunk that can also be lifted for additional living space. On the other hand, the 44” sleeper comes with a 31” coil spring mattress.
Finding the Right Mattress
Although the Peterbilt 567 comes with a stock mattress, it will likely wear down relatively quickly on the road. Eventually, most truck drivers upgrade to a new mattress that can offer better support and comfort. Finding the right mattress for your sleeper cabin can be challenging, since one has to consider price point, mattress quality and mattress size. In the case of truck mattresses, it is very important to take into account your mattress size because the amount of space for a mattress in your sleeper cabin varies among semi truck models. The Peterbilt 567 80” sleeper can accommodate a mattress that is 42 inches wide and 80 inches long. This space is large enough to accommodate a mattress that measures slightly larger than a standard twin XL
What SleepDog Can Offer You
Here at SleepDog®, we offer mattresses that maximize your level of comfort and support no matter your destination. Our customers can choose between two mattress models, the SleepDog® Mattress and the BigDawg Mattress™, both of which are excellent options for the road. The two DOT approved mattresses employ CoolRest® gel memory foam that contours to your body and SureAlign® support foam to minimize motion transfer. The SleepDog® Mattress and the BigDawg Mattress™ are both designed to support and align your spine while you sleep. Depending on your own preference, the BigDawg Mattress™ is double-sided to provide either firm or softer support.
Both mattresses are available in most standard truck mattress sizes, but for the Peterbilt 567 80” sleeper configuration in particular, we recommend Size C for both the SleepDog® Mattress and the BigDawg Mattress™. The Size C mattress measures at 42 inches wide and 80 inches long, making it the perfect fit.
