A Truck Mattress That Feels Like Your Bed At Home

Updated: Sep 5, 2023

Your semi-truck is how you make your livelihood, but it’s also where you spend most of your time and have to rest your head after a long day on the road. And long-haul truckers have a vast distance to travel each day before they get to crawl into their truck bed at night; you deserve to get a good night’s rest! When you are looking for a new mattress for your semi’s sleeper cab, you want a high-quality truck mattress that is durable and will last for years, but is also comfortable.

You’ve likely noticed the mattress that came with your big rig’s bed isn’t all that great. And we all know what sleeping on a subpar mattress can do to our backs, joints, mood, and cognitive abilities, especially if you’re sleeping on it long-term. Truck drivers already spend 8 to 14 hours per day sitting in the same position; they need a mattress in their semi that is super-comfy and ergonomic.

Semi-truck mattresses also have unique size requirements, so you won’t be able to find them in a regular mattress store. Luckily you can order a custom mattress that is designed to fit your specific sleeper cab perfectly! A custom mattress maker can create a luxury, made-to-measure memory foam mattress for any tractor trailer bed, no matter the dimensions or space limitations.

A Custom Truck Bed Increases Safety and Quality of Life

Sleeping well at night is so important for long-haul truck drivers. It’s not only about their health and well-being, but their safety as well. You’ve got to stay wide awake and alert on the road all day, so a good mattress is essential for keeping you well-rested and healthy. There are a few things to think about when ordering a custom big rig mattress if you want to optimize those precious few hours of sleep each night.

  • Depending on your route, there can be extreme temperature changes, with cold mornings and hot nights, but picking what materials your mattress is made out of can help ensure that your mattress is breathable and won’t be affected by the swing in temperatures.

  • The bed linen set you sleep in can be just as important for sleep quality as the truck bed’s mattress. Have bedding custom made for your new semi-truck mattress. 600-thread-count Egyptian cotton can elevate a simply comfy mattress to a luxurious restful experience.

  • Even the nicest of semi sleep spaces might not have a lot of overhead room. Hence those sad, thin foam pads manufacturers try to pass off as quality truck mattresses. With a custom memory foam replacement mattress for your semi’s sleeper cab, you can increase comfort and ergonomics exponentially without needing 14 inches of depth.

Your sleeper cab shouldn’t be uncomfortable, and once you have a great custom mattress for your truck you can follow these simple tips for how to sleep well in your semi-truck.

Buying A Great Mattress For Your Truck

There are some common truck mattress sizes, like 35”x79” or 42”x80”, but you can do so much more with a custom mattress to maximize the space and comfort of your sleeping arrangements than just alter the length. Hinged mattresses that are split down the middle can be lifted one half at a time to allow you to have more storage space under your bed (and who doesn’t want more storage space in their truck?), and if they are well-made you should not be able to feel the hinge when you lay down. You can also choose your mattress’s materials and decide how firm or soft you want your mattress to be.

When shopping for a semi-truck mattress, it’s important to make sure the mattress is made out of materials that aren’t toxic and won’t make you sick. This is especially vital for truckers, as truck mattresses are put in a small, enclosed space with recirculated air. At Custom Mattress Factory, we are committed to keeping 100% of our bespoke mattress-making (raw materials & labor) in the USA.

We only use high-quality materials like natural latex and organic cotton, and our CustomFoam and memory foam options for truck mattresses are always made of safe materials.

Memory Foam Can Be a Perfect Pick for Semi-Truck Mattresses

Memory foam is the perfect choice for a custom semi-truck mattress. It has exceptional comfort, support, and adaptability to the unique needs of truck drivers. The long hours spent on the road demand a mattress that provides optimal rest and alleviates pressure points. Memory foam conforms to the driver's body. It offers personalized support and distributing weight evenly. They reduce discomfort and promote better sleep quality.

Furthermore, semi-truck mattresses face challenges such as vibrations, uneven surfaces, and road noise. Memory foam's ability to absorb motion and isolate disturbances ensures a more peaceful rest. Even at a hectic truck stop, a foam bed can keep you fast asleep. Its resilience allows it to bounce back to its original shape. Memory foam offers longer lasting and reliable mattress for extended periods of use.

In addition to comfort and durability, memory foam is hypoallergenic. Resistance to dust mites and allergens is a must in a trucking environment. Memory foam in a custom semi-truck mattress can offer you a healthy and calm sleep at night. Truck drivers need to stay well-rested and focused during their demanding journeys.

As a long-haul trucker, you are an integral part of keeping our supply lines on track. You deserve a luxury custom mattress for your tractor trailer bed, just like you deserve good pay and quality benefits. Treat yourself!
