If you like this sort of thing this guy has been specializing in selling them for 40+ years

He has about 20 of them of all flavors right now. We call them houses in the trucking biz. Our company finally said no more, we won't allow anyone to lease on with a house because the severe operational limitations, weight and maneuverability. New ones go for about $250K but have an absolute horrible resale, because anyone who has the money for one wants a custom layout, in the sleeper and the tractor, including paint.

 

They are popular in a couple of areas. Enclosed car haulers, notably Reliable Carriers has a bunch of them, but they don't have to back in anywhere. They are a major league headache when a bunch of them blow into a major city to deliver cars to a car show like the NY Auto Show. Southern Pride, a flatbed outfit specializing in hauling jet engines has a bunch of them, again, no problem finding 40 acres to turn it around at an airport. But watch them squirm when they have to park for the night at the average truckstop. Bedbuggers( household goods, and electronics) use them, but not as much as they used to. They always have the option of dropping the shipment at an agent and let the agent deliver something they can't get to, or they can transfer it to smaller equipment.

 

It seemed to me to buy an older one that has been well maintained, they are cheaper than the average used motorhome, but again, they likely have 13 or 18 speeds so the RV market doesn't want them either...
