History of Cabover Trucks

The first trucks in the United States were made in 1899 by Autocar. These trucks weren't considered cabovers, but they were built with the engine compartment under the driver's seat. The Sterberg company was considered the first to produce actual cabover trucks in 1907. The same company reintroduced the cabover body style in 1933.

Viktor Scdhreckengost and Ray Spiller were the first to introduce the design of modern cabover trucks. These trucks were designed in 1932 for the White Motor Company. The bodies were first produced by MBC, the Metropolitan Body Company. This company was purchased by International Harvester in 1948.

Cabover sleeper trucks were most popular in the U.S. during the 1970s because many states had laws restricting the overall length of semi trucks. They are still being manufactured today, but the cabover body style is much more common in medium-duty and light-duty trucks.

Advantages of Cabover Trucks Vs. Conventional Trucks

Maneuverability

One of the biggest reasons that companies choose cabover trucks over conventional is that they are easier to maneuver in tight spaces. Cabovers turn shorter than conventional trucks and they are easier to use when navigating narrow streets and high-traffic areas. They are also shorter, which means they take up less space for parking.

Easier to Maintain and Repair

Another advantage of the cabover body style is that it is easier for technicians to reach the engine and other major mechanical systems. This means that repair times are usually shorter and labor costs are generally less with cabover trucks as compared to conventional trucks.

Amenities and Options Available on Cabover Sleeper Trucks

Because of their shorter length and tighter turning radius, companies often use cabover trucks when deliveries will be made to the homes of their customers. These trucks are often considered to be less comfortable for the driver than conventional sleeper trucks, but there are many amenities that are available for driver safety and comfort.

Some of these amenities include:

  • 19.5 inch wheels and tires for lowered height
  • Automatic transmissions
  • Bench seat with storage underneath
  • Wraparound windshield for added visibility
  • Air-ride driver's seat
  • Various wheelbases to choose from
  • Double Bunk
  • Polished aluminum wheels
  • Split-shift PTO
