Does a Queen Mattress Fit in Truck Bed?

Fitting a queen-size mattress into a truck bed can be difficult, especially if you have a smaller truck. However, with some careful planning and the right equipment, you can make it happen.

The first step is to measure your truck bed. You’ll need to know the exact length and width in order to determine if your truck will fit a queen mattress. Queen mattresses typically measure around 60 inches by 80 inches, so you’ll need at least that much space in your truck bed for it to fit.

Next, you’ll need to decide how you want to transport the mattress.

If your truck has tie-down hooks or anchor points, you can use these to secure the mattress in place. Alternatively, you can use straps or bungee cords around the mattress and hook them onto any secure points in the bed of your truck.

Finally, when loading the mattress into your truck bed, it’s important that you don’t exceed the weight capacity of your vehicle. Depending on what type of truck you have, this could be anywhere from 500 pounds to 1,000 pounds or more. Overloading your vehicle could cause serious damage and put yourself and other drivers at risk.


In conclusion, a queen-size mattress can fit into a truck bed with some careful planning and using the right equipment (straps or tie-downs). However, it’s important that the size of your truck is taken into consideration and that any weight limitations are not exceeded when transporting the mattress.
