A low engine tunnel results in a near flat cab floor in which a six-foot driver can easily stand upright and move around the Aerodyne cab.
For maximum living space, the K200 is available with a 2.8m sleeper and King Single Bunk option, and when a manual transmission is selected, entry through to the sleeper is made more accessible by a foldaway gear lever. For additional storage, under the bunk there is space for two 30 litre fridges or storage drawers.
