Hello all. I have searched the articles and couldnt find what I was looking for. I was thinking it would be nice if those with truck friendly appliances would be willing to post the kind of appliance you have, how much it cost you, where it can be found and how well it has performed for you. It would be nice to have the truck friendly items, be it for trucks with or without inverters all on one post so they can be easily found rather than doing a google search and not knowing the quality or functionality (in a mobile setting) of what we find. Basically I would like to know about everything from appliances to matresses, sheets to fit them, TVs and mounts that work well in trucks etc. Anything worthwile for making life on the road easier.

Seriously, practically everything in my truck is from Walmart. When you’re not home for months, no sense ordering anything online that will just sit in your mailbox. Walmart is cheap, and I can stop in with my truck when I’m on the road.

The only thing I have that isn’t from Walmart is a Rankee strap pusher-expensive, but it’s the bomb.

Iowa 80 Truck Stop.

Not that I've ever purchased anything there, but it's fun to just browse around in there and see what's available. If it goes in a big truck, they've got it.

You can even get a guitar there if you're musically inclined. smile.gif

I purchased floor mats and a mattress from the Raneys Truck Parts website; sheets for mattress from Walmart. A 2-qt Crock Pot crock pot from Walmart’s website, as that particular crock pot isn’t available in-store (thanks for the recommendation Old School!). Coleman plug-in cooler also from Walmart’s website, because they’re hard-to-find in-store.

Walmart, Amazon, a Freightliner dealer, and a few TA truck stops. Depending in what I'm needing/wanting at the time.
