Yes, that would be my bed. I'm sure there's a pic on here somewhere....here's one. I have an 8 inch memory foam mattress in there now. Not bad comfort wise.

Too bad about Crew Cab Sleeper. I loved mine. Now I use the plywood bed base for a table in my garage and still have the window insert (Why? I'm not sure. Sentimental I guess. Spent many comfortable nights in that bed delivering trailers for Jayco. Sure beat trying to get a good night's sleep in the back seat!)

I believe the RV market decline and bad information on the internet killed Crew Cab Sleeper. With my Ford, I did the DOT measurements the bed was in compliance. Back in 2008 (and it's still out there!), there was a post that stated "The Feds deemed the CCS conversion NOT a compliant sleeper!" WRONG! The FEDS publish the specifications. THEY do not do measuring etc!

I went through MANY scales etc., had log books and permits checked and NEVER was there a question about my sleeper. I've never heard of ANYONE having their Crew Cab Sleeper checked.

It does not meet the 24 x 24 inch requirement in a 3rd gen Dodge. I have not had any issue with mine but I always log off duty not sleeper.

I logged off duty for sleeping, too, when I was driving solo. But when my wife and I drove as a team, we gained driving hours every day by one of us logging sleeper time in the evening and the other in the morning with both of us logging time in the sleeper for 6-8 hours.

The only 'problem' was that our standard poodle hated being kicked out of sleeper to sleep in the front seat when my wife and I were both in the sleeper! Just not enough room for 50 lbs. of poodle and two adults in the sleeper.

Lower trailer makes loading snowmobiles much easier. First pic has 16 on the trailer, the second 14.
