Need truck with bigger sleeper area!

Me and my wife team drive and stay out 2 months at a time then home 2 weeks. We currently have a Cascadia but would like a bigger sleeper area, looking at a KW T660 86 Studio or Western Star 86" Stratosphere. We run to California and back and sometimes northwest and back so we deal with mountain climbs. Would like to get advice on best engine and setup for operations of pulling reefer with average load weight of 37,500 lbs. . Thanks

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I run the northwest every week hauling 48,000 + and when I bought this last truck I thought I would try a lower horsepower and a 10 speed biggest mistake I ever made the lower horsepower isn't a big problem but that 10 speed never again I would use at least a 13 speed and with me being 6ft tall I am not sure about the aerodynamic truck either I am having a lot of knee pain now

Can't hardly beat the Cat Acert 625 HP engine for pulling, it's a beast. I agree with Mel on the transmission get a 13 or an 18 speed.
