Calling all truck drivers: looking for the best truck mattress? Truck driving is an incredibly demanding job, one that often requires drivers to sleep on the go, on tight schedules, and in tighter spaces. Whether you are out on the open road for work or for play, your sleep health is essential to keep you alert, healthy, and happy. Texas Mattress Makers can help you get the best quality sleep possible with a custom truck mattress.

Driving a truck all day can be a dangerous task if you are not properly rested. Studies have shown that 40% of big truck accidents happen as a result of drowsy drivers. Sleep deprivation and fatigue not only put you, the truck driver, at risk, but also everyone else on the road around you. Because of this, it is crucial that you get the best rest you possibly can every night, and to do that you need to sleep on the right mattress for you. 

For those who turn their trucks into a sleep sanctuary every night, Texas Mattress Makers can customize the best truck mattress that will not only fit perfectly into your truck, but will also give your body the support and comfort necessary to give you the best night’s sleep possible.

Customize Your Dream Truck Mattress

When to replace your current truck mattress

If you are constantly tired after waking up in your vehicle or experience constant aches and pains, there is a high chance that you are sleeping on the wrong mattress. Most truck drivers opt to sleep on cheap air mattresses out of convenience due to their portability, but we all know that air mattresses are notorious for being incredibly uncomfortable and lacking in support. 

For most drivers, their truck is not just a means of transport, but a home away from home — and just because you’re not sleeping in a true bed does not mean that you have to sleep on a mattress that doesn’t benefit you. While some mattress retailers might claim that one specific model is the best mattress for truckers, we believe that mattresses, even for trucks, are not one-size-fits-all and should cater to your needs.

Texas Mattress Makers is a Houston mattress retailer and manufacturer that can create fully customized, high-quality mattresses for your truck at the best price. Our customers have raved online about how we can produce a custom RV mattress for outdoor enthusiasts, and we can certainly create your perfect mattress for a semi-truck. Here’s how.

How can I customize my perfect truck mattress?

With the help of our mattress experts, here is how they will guide you to customize the best semi-truck mattress for your needs.

Step 1: Choose your components

Finding your perfect mattress is all about choosing the components that will benefit your unique body and needs best. When you shop with our mattress experts, they will recommend certain mattresses or components based on the following criteria:

  • Your body type 
  • Your preferred sleeping position (side, back, stomach, combination)
  • If you sleep hot or cold*
  • Any health conditions (arthritis, sciatica, pain, acid reflux, etc.)

After we learn more about your sleep preferences, our experts will hand-select which of our high-quality components would suit you best in order to create the best truck mattress for you — and we mean you specifically. 

*Because there is a chance that you can get overheated when sleeping in your truck, especially in the summer heat, we recommend looking into our line of cooling mattresses. Our Ice Blue cooling technology is sewn right into the quilt of the mattress which promotes healthy airflow to keep your body temperature cool and comfortable all night long. 

Step 2: Select a size

What size mattress do truckers use? Because truck mattresses typically don’t fit into the standard mattress size range, we can provide custom mattress sizes to ensure that your mattress fits perfectly into your truck. Before you meet with one of our experts, measure the sleeping area in your truck and jot down the dimensions so that we know exactly what shape and size your truck mattress needs to be. Be sure to take into account the height of the mattress as well as this oftentimes will be what determines the types of components that will be used as well as the overall cost.

Step 3: Sleep comfortably 

Typical mattresses marketed to truckers prioritize portability and price over comfort and support. With a custom mattress from Texas Mattress Makers, you can get the best truck mattress for the best price that will allow you to sleep well and wake up refreshed so you can get back on the road. 

Custom mattresses can improve sleep quality because they are made with you in mind. No matter where you choose to sleep, your body needs to be supported properly and your joints need to be cushioned. On top of that, your spine needs to be in proper alignment to avoid aches and pains. None of this is possible on a bad mattress. 

It’s possible that a truck driver can go through multiple air mattresses within a year because they tend to be low-quality and therefore susceptible to wear and tear. Replacing cheap mattresses is more expensive than investing in a high-quality mattress that will satisfy all of your needs for years to come — trust us. Put your sleep into the capable hands of our mattress experts who will customize your dream truck mattress for an affordable price.
