At Truckpages you can filter all your searches by cab type to find the ideal sleeper cab truck for sale.
We categorise cabs with overnight sleeping facilities in by the height of the cab. On these pages you will find standard-sized sleeper cabs. There should be enough room for two to sleep in, but we use the category of ‘High Roof Sleeper’ for those cabs with extra room – usually with flat floors and the ability to stand upright, regardless of the driver’s height.
Please remember to check the description of the truck thoroughly – if you need a double sleeper, check the details and make sure that it says so – if it is not clear, then call the seller and ask before making a journey. There are occasions when a top bunk may have been removed to give the driver extra space.

Sleeper cabs are more desirable in the used truck market than day cabs, so even if you do not require a cab to overnight in, it may be worth considering a sleeper for resale factors alone. In addition, a sleeper has a lot more room inside, giving the driver a better experience and somewhere to store items than a standard day cab.
Sleeper Cab Brands
Truck makers tend to brand their cabs these days, so it is not always easy to grasp the cab size from the description. Mercedes-Benz, for example use the terms ‘ClassicSpace’ and ‘StreamSpace’ for their standard sleeper cabs on the Actros. MAN used to use XL and XLX but changed the system in 2020 for GM and GN denoting the standard heights.
UK market leaders, DAF use the terms, ‘Space Cab’ whilst Volvo use the ‘Globetrotter’ brand for their standard sleeper cabs. Scania have a low, single sleeper cab, then a ‘normal’ sleeper cab as well for both the R-Series and S-Series.

Smaller Sleeper Cab Trucks
Of course, it’s not just the top end tractor units that have sleeper cabs, many rigid trucks can have sleeper cabs – going right down to the 7.5 tonners. These may not be as luxurious, although for certain applications, removal trucks, for example, the body builders will make a special sleeper pod inside the ‘Luton’ area of the body to provide comfortable accommodation for the crew.
Buying a Sleeper Cab truck – What to Check For
When buying a used sleeper cab, it’s worth paying particular attention to certain items if you intend to use it for nights out.
Security – do all the door locks work properly? Are there any additional locks fitted to the cab?
Cleanliness– Is the mattress and surrounding area clean and stain-free? No driver would want to spend time in a truck cab that smelt – has there been any smoking in the cab? This would be costly to rectify.
Heating/Cooling – Is the truck fitted with an ancillary night heater so the engine doesn’t need to be run on cold nights. Equally, what cooling methods are there available for our one hot night a year?
If the standard crew cab is too long to fit a full-length body, then order a sleeper cab that has a seat-bunk combination fitted. That’s what R&S Recovery Services’ did with their new Mercedes-Benz Atego which now has a cab that’s roomy enough to accommodate five passengers, but not so long that it eats into space better used for the load bed. The High Wycombe-based operator purchased its 15-tonne Atego from Rygor Commercials, a Dealer for which it works as a sub-contractor. The truck has a ClassicSpace L-cab with additional side windows and an innovative seat-bunk combination. This option provides…>
