Rainy, any way you can give more info on the mattress place you found In Springfield? With any luck I’ll be upgrading in a couple of weeks and may just buy myself an upgrade present! What were the price ranges?

Mattress Firm on Battlefield road springfield, across from the indoor mall.

the prices range low to high but they have great quality mattresses.

example: the one i wanted in NJ was a Sterns & Foster top of the line Lux Estate with cashmere and silk woven material, individually wrapped coils, ultra plush euro pillowtop for $4000 and went on sale for $2100. was still too rich for me as a newbie.

I was in this store and that mattress was clearanced at $800. i got a nice mattress for $600 in NJ..but i would have rather paid 800 for the one i truly wanted.

i almost bought it last time i was in sprimo. the guy says they have a bunch in stock. not all are that expensive, but i knew what i wanted.

they had a BeautyRest Black that is $1800 back home and was $700 there.

Company drivers cant leave the yard though bobtail , so youd have to go with a load.

and, honeslty, you might want to wait a bit. you do not get paid during upgrade and you will have to buy chains, locks, etc.


"Bobtailing" means you are driving a tractor without a trailer attached.

the bottom.bunk is wider than the top and doesnt fit. i have one in my storage locker but prime will throw it out. when i turned my truck in they didnt ask for it. my new truck didnt come with a mattress, i was supoosed yo.go ask for one but i didnt bother. no one asked for the old one.


When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.
