Samantha, big trucks started having sleepers about 1921.

Yes they did have sleepers 20 years ago, including flat bedders. He may have seen a lot of local or regional day cabs flat bedder where he grew up and assumed that all didn't have sleepers.

Now he might be out and paying attention to how many flat bed OTR trucks he sees.

His mind (or memory) must be playing tricks on him.

Don't rub it in, take it light on him. LOL
