Tour the inside of an RV-like semi-truck sleeper cab
Sue gave me the tour and I am impressed. The dinette offers a nice place to relax and eat a meal or watch TV. It also turns into a spacious double bed. The overhead bed holds extra gear with seat belt type webbing. A fold-out ladder gives access to the overhead bunk. David calls this their "condo" because when their kids and grand kids come to visit they sleep in the truck.
David paid $56 thousand for this rig and says, "It's a mucher better and safer way to tow a heavy 5th wheel than a medium duty truck, cheaper too. I bought this truck for two reasons, safety and economics. It has great brakes designed to stop 80 thousand pounds and it is a joy to drive with air suspension and auto-shift."Sue likes the microwave oven and the built-in pantry. There is also a refrigerator behind the driver. It also has a porta-potty and shelving convienient for travel books. The sunroof brightens up the cab. Day or night the "black-out" privacy curtains provide a restful environment.They use their motorcycles for local touring and store them behind the cab using an electric hoist. I'll do a video in a future article to show you how he does it.David is a resident of Texas and says he doesn't need a commercial licence to drive this rig because it is registered as an RV. Plenty of pulling and stopping power gives this couple confidence on the road.
