C&C truck sleeper cabs

I seen a new dodge 5500 hotshot hauler the other day, had a sleeper cab on his truck, anyone know if there's a company that makes dot spec sleeper boxes that bolt on. This one looked like it was factory done didn't look home made. If it was home made thumbs to that guy for the out come.

Cowtown makes one.

Cowtown Sleepers The best tops for your pickup



Other than that it's usually mod a 36" semi bunk and use it. Or if you want to spend some serious cash you can go to AA or Roadmaster and have them do one.

This is one nice looking truck, it actually ended up on ebay pretty beat about a year ago. The dealer said it was a repo.

I also found roadmaster, witch they can streatch my truck and put a full sized sleeper cab on and still have my 8 foot bed open for hauling. Pretty much I'm turning my 2001 3500 DRW into a mini OTR hauler.

If you need a frame stretch look up Sellers Mfg in Milton, In. They do good work (they did all the frames for Double Eagle), and affordable. They are going to do one for me, 60" $1300. That's you pulling the bed.

As far as Roadmaster goes he doesn't do the frames himself, he sends them out like most sleeper builders. The Roadmaster is a nice sleeper, I had one on a previous truck.

Yeah I'll look into that frame guy you said, from the info pack and photos I got the roadmaster is the one I'm going with, nice and big with lots of room. Now all I need is to get me a spare truck to haul with when go get this all done. I'm looking by this time next year to get this done, and then get the complete truck covered up with a body wrap. Going to look nice when I'm done.

Frame shop will take just over a week. And the guys at roadmaster can have it pretty much complete by time you get there (as long as you send a deposit). So somewhere between 2 and 3 weeks total time should cover it.

Mine is going under the knife late July early August while I am on vacation, then I figure a week when I get back to install the sleeper and finish it up (doing it myself).

sounds good, right now i been too busy to let my truck go for 3 weeks. I'm looking at maybe this time next yr getting it done, as right now with my new contract job, im pretty much running 6 days a week, and resting 1 day and in that day im cleaning my truck, and maintaining it. right now im home pretty much every night, good thing too I hate sleeping in a quad cab. and DOT really dont like u sleeping in a pick-up cab hooked to a load at a rest area... my gig now is pretty much 500 miles aday, I been hauling large A/C units to a new warehouse jobsite, and bringing loads of PVC pipe, and picking up stacks of empty pallets and taken them back to another shipper. its money but its long days. after this is done, im going back to hauling, boats, RV's and what ever i can take on my 40ft lowboy. no Vacation this yr, got to save to get this truck done the way i want it to be, the sleeper box, thinking of adding a second roller axle, pretty much a dana 80 with no gears in it, but working brakes unless i can get a transfer box setup to be able to lock it in when needed as a second drive axle. once sleeper cab is on no more BED. going to put a thick deck plate under my 5th/gooseneck rails. ok its turning into a MINI dodge semi truck. lol.

If Cowtown sleepers is the location in Ft Worth, TX I would be really cautious sending them any kind of deposit. They have been having some serious money issues over the last couple of years.
