Hello all, Can someone tell me how tall the sleeper is in the cascadia mid roof? I'm about 6'8 and worried about starting my career with a company that primarily runs these?

Thank you

Brian, between the seats in the cab, headroom is 82”. Where the cab transitions to the sleeper compartment, headroom is 92” and it goes up in height from there. You should be fine even at your height.

BK, that just doesn't sound right. Are you even in a Mid Roof tractor?

Well, I may have my truck confused with a Mid Roof tractor. I have the ubiquitous Cascadia with lower and upper bunks. But the measurements I took are accurate for my truck as I used my trusty tape measure to check. Is there a photo of a Mid Roof tractor here? I’ll do a little research to find out what a Mid Roof is.

Yours is known as a "condo".

Catracho's is a BIGGER condo, BK . . . you're fine. To him and Tiffany Hannah, yours IS a midroof, haha!!!

Besides, to the O/P: Be happy you don't have a Volvo Flat Roof, 30" ~!

One of the Pete's we used to pull asphalt with literally had a coffin sleeper. We just used it as a daycab, but sure is a cool 'nappy' space! Pretty sure Tom DID take a few naps, when I wasn't with.

So, would the measurement between my truck seats, from floor to ceiling, 82”, be the same in a Mid Roof as in a condo?
