You won't believe the setup in the back of this 2020 Peterbilt 579 so the driver can play games while hauling cargo.
ZanaZamora said they are using truck simulator games to help train his girlfriend who is planning on getting a Commercial Drivers License so they can team drive. While building a PC inside a semi truck might appear more cumbersome than building something like a Destiny 2 weapon-themed PC case, ZanaZamora said the whole rig "tucks away nicely at the foot of the bed."
ZanaZamora19 has said that most of the other trucker gamers he knows solve this problem by using laptops, but ZanaZamora19 isn’t a laptop guy. Since his new 579 doesn’t have a table, he’s now using a Couchmaster Cycon gaming desk. It’s designed for using a mouse and keyboard setup on the living room couch, but ZanaZamora has found it works great in a truck, too.
That’s because his monitor is mounted on a swivel attached to the storage bulkhead between the sleeper bed area and the main cab of the truck. When he’s done driving, he can head to the back of his rig, swing the monitor into place, and set the gaming desk over his lap – there’s room enough for a Corsair K55 RGB keyboard and Dark Core wireless mouse (and Polaris RGB mousepad), plus space on the armrests for his Logitech Saitek X-56 throttle and stick combo – crucial peripherals for the flight sims he enjoys.
The current setup looks nice and plush, and with the red lights of the sleeper bathing everything in a warm glow, it’s hard not to be a little envious, even – at least until you remember the luxury of a wired internet connection.
