This may look like an RV, but it’s far from it!

So what is this? No, it’s not an RV. And, no it’s not a boat!

The sleepers in these king-sized big rig trucks are anything but modest.

It’s a truck, a big truck, the kind you see rolling down the interstate. Most long haul truckers have a sleeper behind the cab, and some can be very nice — compact versions of RVs. But this one is way bigger and fancier than what most truckers have onboard.

ARI Legacy Sleepers builds spacious, feature-packed sleeper cabs complete with toilets, showers, kitchens, TVs, and other amenities like those found in luxury RVs to make a trucker’s off-duty hours more comfortable. The company has built sleepers since 2001. A typical sleeper may cost a trucker $50,000 or so. But these super-sized versions can cost three times that or more!

As you can tell, the company does nice work.

The trucker that you see parked for the night at a rest area in a rig like the ones pictured above is hardly suffering for creature comforts.

These ones are really nice! I’ve never seen them, most likely because I’ve never paid attention. I wish they put more Murphy beds in regular RVs, especially short ones, they make life much easier. We had to switch from class B+ to class A for several reasons but one of them was “not making a bed every single night!”. I also wonder if the truckers with RV-trucks have big enough tanks as I am almost positive to use a dump with a huge trailer behind is not that easy. Anyways, I am glad they exist. Looks cool and pretty good in quality.
