    I like it! I would want a sleeper that I could at least roll over in though, going to TX ya would think they would have afforded him/her that small luxury. I love the truck though!

    I'm thinkin' that the small cab, and the cabover layout, are what it takes to pull a 57 foot trailer and still be legal overall length. You won't see a conventional pulling a trailer that long.

    I love it because its a cabover looks like an old Werner truck, I say no to the fenders and the cab extender has to go! I'm all about looks when it comes to a cabover! Those fenders are ugly.

    No not a hood but just a little more sleeper please! All I want is to be able to lay in bed without touching metal!

    I'm sure it is padded on the inside.

    Every once in a while you'll see a Winnebago (372) earning it's keep, like this one. One of the guys I work with knows I like old cabovers. He took this pic and sent it to me.

    Well, OK, we'll put one of those under the trailer sleepers on it. You know, like they had back in the 1930's and 1940's..

    Here is a K100 I saw last night pulling a bull wagon on the Ohio turnpike.

    The first shot is the truck in my side mirror as he passed me.

    Fortunately he was empty. I always dread when one of them passes me. I'm sure you have seen the spray that can come out of those things when the cattle suddenly "let go".

    Here is a rather unusual cabover (cabunder?) I came across.

    I am not driving that! I'm sorry but I refuse!

    Thank goodness that didn't catch on.
