ha, thats funny
; i made that pic in PaintShopPro.
looks like we will soon start building it
the goal is to keep the rig under 35' and with no slide-outs; the (soon to be) owner (and good friend of us) is also into dune buggies (he actualy has one of our buggies
) so the truck will be used as a weekend getaway and will see his share of dusty roads and sand storms. his job makes it difficult to get away for too long so the safety, performance and speed to get to all the different dune/desert riding areas ASAP is very important.
his wife and him already have a MDT and share the driving duty. thats why a "Autoshift" or a "Freedomline" is high on the "must have" list, together with a C15 or N14
to get back to the original topic; yes, the sleeper will be cut in half and we will reuse the front and rear fiberglass cab parts. the rest will be a steel space frame construction with a aluminum/ stainless steel skin.
the Pete 387 is right around 13' tall; we will use basement air and flush mounted automotive style safetyglass skylights/vents (i hate the plastic ones anyway) to keep the roof completely flat.
working out all the details right now...
as my bro already posted; we will post more details here on TC.net soon
