FAQs

Does ARI build custom truck sleepers?

Yes! We offer two series of custom sleepers. Please see below for the complete details on each series.


How does ARI strive to maintain the highest quality in the industry?

It all starts with the goal to build quality into our manufacturing processes and strictly following quality control checklists in each production stage. At ARI every production stage is inspected and each inspection is documented. At the end of the line all inspection documentation is reviewed and our full time inspector completes a 25-page final inspection checklist. Once the final inspection is completed and signed off on, a final "quality audit" is performed by one of our founders! We firmly believe that we provide the highest-level of quality in the industry!


What makes ARI different from the competition?

Too many things to list here! Please click the "Compare Us To The Competition!" button on the Legacy II page for a complete list of factors to consider and discuss with our competition and us!


How can I afford a Legacy Sleeper?

Its ultimately your decision, but if you consider the time, money and fuel saved by less idling time, no shower lines, better health and less cost by cooking your own meals, and the overall higher production level of a clean and well fed driver its easy to see that the money saved and extra money earned with time saved can quickly offset a higher monthly truck payment.

ARI has lowered the cost of owning a "custom sleeper" by introducing our Legacy II series of custom sleepers.


Will ARI take my used custom sleeper (ARI, ICT or Double Eagle) in as a trade and put a new custom sleeper on my existing truck?

Yes! We haven't said no to anyone yet!


Will ARI take my used truck & custom sleeper (ARI, ICT or Double Eagle) in as a trade or buy it outright and get me into a new truck & custom sleeper?

Yes! We are happy to take your used truck & custom sleeper in as a trade in or buy it outright and get you into a new truck & custom sleeper through our dealership network.


What is the difference between the various models/series of custom Legacy Sleepers?

The Legacy Custom is our custom line of sleepers. You describe it and we'll design and build it to your specifications. Each Legacy Custom is automatically loaded with the "Legacy Package" which includes the Standard Features and extra amenities you will need for a long day on the road. The price range of a custom sleeper can vary significantly based on the options and features you choose. Please contact our sales department for a quote.

The Legacy II Custom Series is our high-end pre-engineered line of custom sleepers. Don't be fooled because the Legacy II is built with the same features and specifications as our Legacy Custom Series. The difference is that the Legacy II is already designed for you and either in stock or ready for production. Since we can be more efficient in production we pass the savings on to you. That's right you should expect to pay at least 15%-20% less for a Legacy II than you would pay for a Legacy Custom Sleeper.
