Will a Regular Air Mattress Fit in a Truck Bed?

Regular air mattresses are a popular choice among campers and people who like to sleep outdoors. But what if you want to bring one on a road trip in your truck bed?

Will it fit? The answer is, it depends.

Truck beds come in all shapes and sizes, from full-size trucks to mid-size trucks and even some small pickups. The length of the truck bed will determine whether or not a regular air mattress will fit inside.

Most regular air mattresses are around 75 inches long and 54 inches wide, so they will likely fit in most full-sized truck beds. However, if you have a mid-sized or small pickup, there may not be enough room for the air mattress.

If you have a full-sized truck, you should be able to easily fit a regular air mattress in the bed with no problem. You may need to make some adjustments to the way you pack your gear, but it should still work fine. If you have a mid-sized or small truck, then you may want to look into getting a smaller air mattress that will fit in the smaller space.

Another factor that could affect whether or not your regular air mattress will fit in your truck bed is how much gear you plan on bringing along on your trip. If you are packing light and only need room for one person’s sleeping gear, then a regular air mattress should work fine. But if you need more space for multiple people’s sleeping gear or other items like coolers and camping equipment, then you may need to look into getting an extra long or wide size air mattress.


In conclusion, whether or not a regular air mattress will fit in a truck bed depends on the size of the truck bed and how much gear needs to be packed into it. If you have a full-sized truck bed, then there shouldn’t be any issue with fitting an ordinary sized air mattress inside. For mid-size and small trucks however, it may be necessary to get an extra long or wide size mattress that will fit better in the limited space.
