There are more and mode flat floor, high roof sleeper cab trucks for sale in the UK today. This is because cabs are definitely getting bigger.
In the old days a Volvo FH Globetrotter was considered hug, but now we have not only a Globetrotter XL but also a Globetrotter XXL! MAN too have worn out the XL, XLX, XXL sizing descriptions (having reverted back to GX, GM and GN in 2020).
DAF used to be content with a ‘Space Cab’ – now they have a ‘Super Space Cab’ and Mercedes love to go Mega and Giga – the GigaSpace being their top-sized high roof cab (at present).
Do you really need a high roof sleeper cab?
The high roof sleeper cabs are all well and good if the driver(s) are spending weeks away from home, but they add to the weight of the tractor unit and that is no good for payload and efficiency. Never mind the extra cost to buy these flagship trucks in the first place. These large cabs also play to the egos of the owners and the drivers – who wouldn’t want a V8 engine and a super high cab?

Until 2020, MAN had two main ‘high roof’ cabs – the XXL and the XLX (details below. These are only available on the TGX range – it also comes with an XL cab which is ‘just’ 1.66m high so does not qualify as a high roof sleeper.
With the ‘New Generation’ launched in 2020, the high roof cabs are now the GX (2.44 metres – replacing the XXL) and the GM with 2.04 metres of internal standing height.
The XXL cab is one of the biggest truck cabs in Europe.

After three years of operation with a series of used trucks, Tonnes & Tonnes have taken the plunge and splashed out on a limited edition Actros Edition 1. This is understandable, as it will be driven not only by the owner of the business , but also his wife. Newly-qualified Sonara Ferreira must be one of a lucky few to get their hands on a flagship truck so soon after passing their HGV test. Pictured with their Mercedes-Benz Actros 1, the Tonnes & Tonnes team of, from left, Diogo Ferreira, Ludmilla Vieira, Sonara Ferreira and Guilherme Vieira have forged happy…>
