A truck sleeper is a special compartment, which is attached to a tractor’s cabin. It is supposed to provide the driver with more space to relax or sleep. They are becoming more and more popular nowadays because of the new safety regulations.
According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, the maximum amount of time drivers allowed to work without a rest is equals to 11 hours. These limits have seriously raised the demand for trucks with a sleeper. Many truckers have been in situations when they had to find a place to sleep. Instead of paying for a motel, it is usually much more economical and sometimes even more convenient to sleep right in your own vehicle. That is why a truck with a sleeper become very common in the recent years.
