Life on the road is challenging for long-haul truckers; they typically work for weeks at a time, sleep in a very small area in the cab, and depend upon truck stops for the restroom, meals, and showers. except for the price, some companies will make their trucks custom sleeper cabs that feel a bit like home.
One such company, ARI Legacy Sleepers, builds roomy, feature-packed sleeper cabs complete with toilets, showers, kitchens, TVs, and other amenities to make truckers’ off-duty hours easier. Although high-end tiny homes and camper vans are a comparatively new trend, ARI Legacy Sleepers has been packing that sort of functionality into small spaces since 2001.
Customers can choose between a variety of sizes and floor plans, or they will work with ARI to style a totally custom sleeper from the ground up. counting on how much they need to spend, truckers can choose interesting add-ons like custom tile work, full-size appliances, ceiling fans, gaming stations, and pull-out grills.
