    Hi,

    Anyone have a certain kind of mattress that they like for their truck? Mine is a twin size and I’ll soon be in the market for something a little more comfier, just looking for some suggestions. Also, should I store the current mattress somewhere back home since it’s company property?

    Best regards, John

    I bought a tuft and needle mattress for my truck, it’s quite comfy.

    I got a memory foam mattress. I don't like the one I bought, it is too firm

    Couple of things

    Most if not all companies will just throw away the matterss when you change trucks. The 1st thing I always did was "I need a NEW MATTERSS" when I changed trucks...

    Most trucks use a twin XL matterss

    I have a "sleep dog" mattress
     
    farmerjohn64 Thanks this.

    I just purchased a 2” memory foam pad from Walmart and it makes a regular truck mattress passable. Cheap and efficient. Keep in mind almost all mattresses in trucks are a twin XL. I believe it’s about $25-30 and was blue color with eggshell waves in the pattern. I HIGHLY suggest it.

    However best mattress I’ve ever had was an Exped Megamat, insanely comfortable at only a few inches thick and I’m a big, heavy, beast of a dude. Beauty of this mattress is the 30” width which is the top bunk size of my w900.
