My truck had electrical issues so it is in the shop yet again. The last time they replaced a part, the dealer did not do an additional update and part replacement. This caused issues. They needed to get to the wiring under the bunk, so my student and I brought my mattress into the hotel with us.

Im sure we looked crazy carrying it through the parking lot. The maid would have thought i was crazy had i let her in. lol

The life of a trucker.... lol

That looks like a very comfy mattress. What brand is that? Hopefully you can smuggle the mattress without getting police department and DOT called on ya. smile.gif

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

Its a King Koil i bought from Mattress Warehouse. Euro Pillowtop plush. Its a lower end on the quality scale but extremely comfortable. i bought it for $600 when i first went solo not knowing if i would stay in trucking. Surprisingly, King koil is what prime put in the internationals. i hate the "gymnastics mat" type of mattresses in the trucks.

I put a Beautyrest Black Katerina on layaway. Much better quality. I figured since im staying in trucking i m8ght as well invest in my comfort lol

OWI:

Are you the Trucking Princess or the Dungeon Lady, I get confused?

But beware they may think you are trying to steal it. But must be pretty comical to see two ladies bringing a mattress into a hotel room.
