After training and the great day you are assigned your truck, will you receive a new mattress? I will be going to Prime.

In the spiffy KW I just got at Swift, there was a new mattress. I think it's a legal thing. BTW the mattress is longer than a twin: 42 x 80.

I drive for Prime and had a brand new mattress still in plastic when I got my truck. There was no mattress on my top bunk so I went to the detail shop and was given a new one for my top bunk as well.

Thanks that what I was hoping for.

All trucks get a new mattress when switching drivers. The mattresses Prime gives (for free) are very soft and comfortable. This goes for Prime, my old company simply liked to exchange used mattresses and rarely gave out new ones,

Thanks Chris I was hoping it would be a new one.

I'm thinking even if I do get a new one, I'll still order a memory foam from Amazon. We have a temperpedic and it's the best nights rest I've ever gotten. There's an off brand memory foam that is much cheaper and still extremely comfy.
