“And the industry is taking notice — because the demand for truckers is skyrocketing.
“Companies like Legacy Sleepers and Bolt, both based in Indiana, manufacture mobile living spaces that can be affixed to trucks so that those who haul goods across the country for a living can do so comfortably — and in style.
“Even though the price tag for a Bolt deluxe sleeper is a steep $240,000, company president Brian Callan said business is on a roll.”
And these luxury custom sleepers can be powered by Shorepower, ensuring an even more comfortable and quiet nights sleep.
