International Custom Flattop
Recognizing a need for a low profile sleeper truck for several vocational applications, Prairie Technology’s R & D group set out to design and develop a new low roof or flat top conversion for the ProStar sleeper truck. The conversion was dependent upon removing the roof to the lowest possible height (in this case about 9’6”) without significantly impacting the interior cabinet layout. A roof was designed to incorporate the aerodynamic styling of the cab while creating a soft transition from the side panels and doors. Special consideration was given to maintaining the structural integrity not only of the roof but to incorporate the attachment protocol into the cab and sleeper as well.
After an intense effort by three craftsmen and designers over a six week period, the roof was completed along with a new headliner. The roof was installed and painted to match the cab and sleeper. No additional work had to be done to the exhaust or suspension as the chassis remained intact. The truck was delivered to the customer who was very pleased with the final product. The flat top configuration allows for a boom to rest comfortably above the sleeper without problems that would be encountered with a higher roof and bridge clearance issues.
This product is now available on a production basis for anyone interested in converting their 56 inch high rise or skyrise ProStar into a low roof configuration.
