And no, NOT the spaceship looking one.
Was looking at this truck:2000 Freightliner Argosy | eBay
It got me wondering..
Losing the ~8' of nose would give you another 8' of coach. So what was once a 9' garage could now be a 17' garage, and one might still be able to have a separate bedroom, which is more important to us than a garage even, but it would be GREAT to have a self-contained unit with no trailer, capable of hauling the bikes, a car, or even our rock buggy. (roof height might be an issue here, but the next buggy will be no more than 60" tall)
The biggest obstacle I see is keeping the ability of the cab to tilt forward for servicing. I'd think you'd have to lose the air bags on the cab, and then add an accordion-style boot to seal the cab-to-coach hole, but I have to wonder how well that boot would hold up over time.
All this is ASSuming, of course, that when you tilt the cab, the bottom-rear of the cab travels in an arc that doesn't let it move any farther back- otherwise, it'll hit the coach body.
What's everyone's thoughts on this? How do the Argosy's ride? I know the old cab-overs sucked.
