    I don't think it's a semi-truck. Will probably be a box truck or maybe even a bus.

    Don't think that takes place in the US. In my world that would be the logical thing to do, but the Highway Patrol would start with no seat belts, no mud flaps, no wipers, improper windshield, and about 10,000 dollars in fines.

    The DOT here would be grinning at the thought of new boats or cars from all the tickets they were about to issue.

    As a matter of general education, that's a straight truck chassis because the wheelbase is way too long for it to become a tractor for pulling semi-trailers (a semi-trailer carries only part of the load on its wheels; a full trailer has axles at each end to fully carry the load), so the common phrase semi-truck is common nonsense.

    I had an old White Road Commode and I wish the seat in it had been as good as the one that guy is using.

    If you can't make it precise make it adjustable.
