Cab Features - where the real flexibility lies. 

Four-point cab suspension

Driver’s seat
The driver’s seat is fitted as standard with a head restraint, adjustable and fold-down backrest, vertical and fore-aft adjustment, adjustable lumbar support and angle-adjustable seat. Extra freedom comes through flexibility - the total adjustment scope fore to aft is 240 millimetres, and vertically 100 millimetres.  


Passenger seat 
Two different levels available: Standard and Comfort. Both can be ordered with optional upholstery. The passenger seats are equipped as standard with head restraints. A moving passenger seat is also available.


Built to provide a comfortable night's sleep. Bed sizes:74×200 centimetres, with 81.5 centimetres wide middle section, or 74×200 centimetres, extractable to 88×200 centimetres with 95.5 centimetres wide middle section. The bed in the Globetrotter XXL cab is 213 centimetres long. The width at head, middle section and feet are 99/107/99 centimetres respectively.


Equip your cab with a 16 centimetres mattress, with pocket springs and excellent comfort. Three options of firmness are available: Soft, Semi-firm and Firm.

We also provide two options of overlay mattress protector: improves comfort and allows you to square things away quicker.


Also available: recline with adjustable backrest, and the Upper Comfort bed (dimensions 60×190 centimetres or 70×190 centimetres).


Interior storage 
The cab contains a front shelf with four DIN-standard recesses and two large storage compartments with roller-blind doors on the driver and passenger sides.

Under the bed, you can find two pull-out drawers with a total volume of 130 litres. Additionally, there are two smaller storage compartments under the mattress at the foot (10 litres) and head (15 litres) of the bed, and a storage compartment at the foot of the bed for a PET bottle.


Exterior storage 
On both sides of the cab you'll find large storage compartments that can be opened from outside or within. An additional unheated storage space of 30 litres is available under the cab on both sides.


Sky window/roof hatch 
Each cab is equipped with a fixed sky window or an optional roof hatch that can be opened to 50 millimetres. This also serves as an emergency exit. Roof hatch adjustment can be done either manually or electrically.


Steering wheel
The 450mm steering wheel’s height can be adjusted by up to 90 millimetres and the angle can be adjusted by 28 degrees. With neck tilt (option) the steering wheel can be adjusted in vertical position between -5° and +15° - increasing the driver’s comfort.


Climate system
Three alternative climate systems allow you to control the temperature.

• Fan ventilation with conventional coolant heater.
• Air conditioning with manual control (MCC).
