So I’ve been OTR now for 6 months. I’ve decided that my mattress in my truck is horrible and wondering what kind everyone recommends to replace it with? I was thinking about a tuft and needle memory foam. Has anyone put a hybrid spring/foam in their truck? I got an amazing mattress at home and found out they make it in a twin xl that will fit my bunk area, but it’s a hybrid and not sure I can fit it through the doors lol.

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

I shoved a 17 inch BeautyRest Black Natasha through my doors. OMG... fabulous mattress. Its not a hybrid, but a euro plush pillowtop. I just got it last month...omg... fabulous.

I put it on layaway at Mattress Factory in Deptford Nj, not far from the Paulsboro TA on I 295.

Mark is an awesome guy who will give you great prices and ship it anywhere. This mattress was originally like $3500. I got it for $1900 and paid it in cash over 9 months. No fees, no interest, no sales tax. The store pays the sales tax if you pay cash. I even drove right into the store to pick it up. I have bought 4 mattresses from him over the years, including one for my mother last month. she loves hers and i got it 70% off.

There is a Mattress Firm in Springfield MO on Battlefield Road that clearances mattresses constantly and always keeps Twin XL in stock for truckers. Call around, you may be surprised how easy it is to find a grrar mattress.

My friend has a Sleep Number on her truck.

You could always call a store in a lower cost of living area and have it shipped home if you know which one you want.

Rainy, dear, do you realize what you said? "layaway" about a mattress? Too funny!

Josh, go to Amazon and order the Lucid 3" Lavender infused memory foam mattress topper. Twin XL size. Mine cost $48.59 with free Prime shipping. Absolutely a difference maker for sleeping in your bunk.

No i dont see the joke.

Both omy 2017 International and my 2020 International LT A26 are Twin XL.

Your current mattress should have a size tag so check those measurements. Miss Myoshi had an International Lightwe8ght which had an odd ball size.

At my company we can call our detail shop or company store and they can tell you

Rainy, the joke is that you "lay" on a mattress. Layaway?
