There is a group of us on this site that want to hear from the owners of a cabover truck conversion.

Anyone out there own a cabover and would like to share your rigs advantages/disadvantages and pictures?

Hey Bravest - this just wouldn't cut it, would it?
I'm still looking for any, will let you know if I find any.

Hey guys. Just found this site -- it's great!!!

I have a Peterbilt cabover I want to convert. (as dog calls it "live-in" style) Anybody ever seen one where you could walk/etc. between the cab and the rest of the truck?

Thanks,
Glenn

...climbing over the hump on my hands and knees would ditch the project for me....knees are shot! 39'' wide bunk is out of the question if I roll over.....girls would whine for miles and miles. Went to Louisville and looked at the Kibbi ...it is a '99 and needs a little TLC....with 187,000 miles...might be good for someone to have-but not something I can turn a buck on-without doing about 30k in work[upgrades] on.....geofkaye-I'll keep hunting!
