Sleeper Cabs – What are they like?

After reading a recent post on American Trucker about the growing popularity of comfort and convenience in sleeper cabs we decided to dig a little deeper into what today’s sleeper cabs look like.  What we found was enough to make us all ready for a road trip.  Thinking back to the sleeper cabs of yesteryear we were not expecting much, but found today’s high end sleeper cabs more like what we would expect in a luxury motor coach.

Just check out these luxury interiors displayed on Core77.com.

While the majority of sleeper cabs are not quite that luxurious, they are quite comfortable and designed with driver safety in mind.  Ultimately, choosing a career as a long haul trucker has its perks.  With a modern home on 18 wheels to live and work in, an owner operator can comfortably see the country while earning a good living.  As a result, the growing level of comfort and convenience may attract more young drivers to a career on the road. Hopefully, more commercial transport companies will invest in well-appointed sleeper cabs for their long haul drivers.   

Life on the Road

All of this led us to take a closer look at what life is like for today’s drivers. We  found it interesting to hear their stories and see how they live and work in small spaces on the road.  Here is just a sampling of the very cool sleeper cabs we found, along with drivers and some sales professionals we “met”.  We thank them for allowing us to take a peek into their homes.
