    I understand that some (most, all?) trucking companies purchase base model OTR trucks with few options. It appears that all sleeper cabs are equipped with privacy curtains that pull over the driver's side and passenger's side windows and the windshield. Do all sleeper cabs come equipped with the large privacy/light blocking curtain between the front seating and the bunk area?

    Thanks!

    All trucks have the curtain between the sleeper and the cab, a few trucks have the curtains that go around the side windows and windshield, but not all have those, you can however buy those in a truck stop. I like those due to they give you more room between the cab and sleeper leaving the curtain open between cab and sleeper.

    The extra curtain around the windshield is a trim option on the Internationals too.

    I want new sleeper curtains, but I'm afraid to ask Peterbilt what they charge for them. :biggrin_2551:

    The window curtains are $34 on ebay. Or were when I bought mine.

    I made hubbys windshield curtains. We added snaps to the curtains and put the male ends with the screws in the trim around the top, where just the regular screws were. Pretty affordable really. He likes them better than the ones at the TS, because I bought the insulated curtains to make them out of, so they shield the cab from the heat in the summer and black out the truck.

    Problem is, I don't have a pattern, I need the truck to fit them. :biggrin_2559: They are nice though. Hubbys truck just had the curtains behind the seats, we took those out for more room.

    Actually, you would be quite close on most trucks of the same model.

    You could check them out on the other trucks to get an idea.

    The truck (FL Columbia)Im in has the bunk curtains but doesnt have the set that covers the front and side glass.
    A trip to WalMart's fabric Dept and then Office Supply solved that real easy.
    4) Large Black Metal Binder Clips for each side
    4)Medium Black Metal Binder Clips,2 for each visor
    4 Yds of black fabric(dont recall the name,but you cant see thru it)

    Less then $20
