I bit the bullet finally. Just ordered it today. Will arrive at my house this monday or tuesday.

Crew Cab Sleeper - Home

Will post pics later

It was on 1 month backorder and mine shipped today.:hyper::hyper::hyper:

It was hard to decide but i thought this would be more better for me although other brand looks fancier and more comforable with NO STORAGE.

But its not really DOT legal. The width and height where it goes through the window are not large enough. Just log off duty not sleeper berth. I called and although they claim they have no reported issues with the dot, they will admit if asked a direct question that it is not dot compliant based on dimensions. Just want you to know since FL seems to have bug up there butt lately with us pick up guys...Maybe Disney not generating as much tax revenue this year:lol3:.

funny you bring that up. I brought that up to the owner and he said thats not true. People measure like you said and thats not how it works. From bottom of mattress to roof of cab is more then enough room and is complety DOT legal with demensions. But you better beleive im grabbing a tape measure when install and I will take pics with tape measure to finnaly end this myth with dodges and crew cab sleepers along on a couple other hotshot sites. Will keep ya posted:thumbsup

This is what I posted over on rvtransporters.net...

Instead of guessing I decided to call CCS. I specifically asked about the height going through the window, he made no attempt to mislead me and stated that no it does not meet the height requirement there. He then stated that all the agencies that looked at would overlook that since that is where either your pillow or feet would go and since it met all the rest of the requirements and could provide a place to get a good nights sleep.

The last part of his statement did not make to comfortable about dealing with him. His website is misleading about being compliant and now he wanted me assume that every dot officer would overlook the dimension that is a federal guideline.

I just measured the window opening it 20" tall so no matter what its not compliant. You need 24" from the top of the mattress.

Here is a link to the regulation...http://a257.g.akamaitech.net/7/257/...s.gpo.gov/cfr_2005/octqtr/pdf/49cfr393.76.pdf

Hey Coop...

Found this rig right down by you, ever seen it. The trailer is pretty unique since its for cars and boats. May go look at it in a week or so...I may try living in Tampa again and doing cars and boats.

I hate letting it idle. Our trucks our fuel wasters and its about the same price to get a motel for a night then to let it idle all night. I just turn it off for the nights best i can

He wants 75k for both. He said he paid like 23k for the trailer and is asking 15k for it by itself. I am trying to get a load to FL to go look at it:peelout.

Nice.. cheaper than hotel, motel, holiday inn.. :)
It really works well. I bought the electric pump too (fills and deflates). I When I'm done sleeping I deflate it and roll it up and put the seats back up. The mattress pillows, blanket and so on fit nice behind the seat. It takes me less than 5min to either set up or put away my bed.

Its a Broward Auto and Boat Trailer.

Get the CCS yet???
Nah, my window inserts came in today and called ups and they said they damaged it and had to return it to canada. I just talked to CCS and he wasnt aware and heading back to shop to get numbers and call ups and see wtf is going on. How the heck can you destroy a aluminum frame and mattress????? Im so frusterated. I was getting so excited when i saw ups and now im furious cause they never called a few days ago when it happened. So now im prolly gonna have to wait another week or bribe ups to next day that byatch:thumbsup
