My last truck was a '97 Freightliner Century class, Condo W/500 Cummins,13 speed, 19" color TV,DVD, Microwave oven,Refrigerator and all the bells and whistles. That would be the Mercedes Benz of trucks! ( Mercedes owns Freightliner )

I don't know about that. I was VERY impressed with the Century Class. I think that in 30+ yers of driving trucks that it was the MOST comfortable truck I've ever had and I've driven LOTS of trucks......But all of that is very subjective!

My folks have a 2003 Columbia and it spent much of the first 3 months in and out of the shop. I think mostly because the dealer they bought it from never did a Pre-Delivery Inspection. LOTS of little things needed to get fixed and a couple big things like tranny cooler fell of and they lost 22 LBS of fluid, and hood wore through AC hose into condenser. other wise it isn't really that bad of a truck for the price they paid. but still not as solid feeling as a 379 or W900L and it doesn't have a long hood ;) :D

The Columbia came out after I got out of it so I really don't know about it much! I do know that the top of the line Centurys are very solid trucks! If I was to lose my mind and buy another truck tomorrow it would be another Century....

Id have to say Freightshakers are good for making money because of low initial cost. But I drive because thats what I love to do and if im goina do it I'd want to do it in the best truck i can. But if I was in it for the money I too would probally go Freightliner

I like to keep as much of my money as possible so I can spend it on toys and enjoying my toys. Life's too short to not enjoy every minute of it!

I drove a Euclid in a mine in Arizona back in the Mid '70s that you could fit three complete tractor trailers in side by side. It was to sat the least cool.
