What Mattress Fits in a Truck Bed?

When it comes to finding the right mattress for your truck bed, there are a few things that you need to take into consideration. You’ll want to make sure that the mattress fits snugly in the bed of your truck and that it’s comfortable enough for you to get a good night’s sleep.

Size: The first and most important factor is size. Measure the inside of your truck bed from side-to-side and from front-to-back, and then add a few inches all around for safety.

Once you have these measurements, you can shop for mattresses that will fit in your truck bed. Most mattresses come in standard sizes like twin, queen, king, and California king, so you’ll need to make sure that the mattress you choose fits within the confines of your truck bed.

Firmness: Once you have determined the size of mattress that will fit in your truck bed, it’s time to consider firmness. Different people have different preferences when it comes to how firm their mattress should be.

Generally speaking, softer mattresses are better for people who sleep on their sides or stomachs while firmer mattresses are better for back or stomach sleepers. If you’re unsure about what type of firmness is best for you, try out some different types in stores before making a decision.

Type: When shopping for a mattress specifically designed for truck beds, there are two main types available – foam mattresses and air mattresses. Foam mattresses generally offer more support than air mattresses but they tend to be more expensive as well. Air mattresses offer more flexibility when it comes to adjustability but they don’t always provide as much support as foam mattresses.


When choosing a mattress for your truck bed, make sure that it fits snugly within the dimensions of the bed and also take into account factors such as firmness level and type (foam vs air). With these considerations in mind, finding the perfect mattress should be easy!
