The truck bed air mattress has become a popular accessory with pick up truck owners over the last few years. These mattresses are designed to fit the shape of the bed of a pick up truck, even accommodating the wheel wells very nicely.
These handy mattresses can be used in conjunction with truck tents for camping out or you can use them simply to sleep under the stars on a clear night.
Regardless of the type and size of truck you own, there is probably a truck bed air mattress to fit it perfectly. Designs and sizes include:
The difference between the mattresses that fit between the wheel wells and the ones that fit over the wheel wells is that the latter enables you to utilize the entire width of the truck bed for sleep.
Considering these air mattresses need to be as rough and tough as the truck, they're manufactured from durable materials like nylon backpack cloth or heavy-duty PVC vinyl. Seams are reinforced so they'll hold up to the rough-and-tumble environment.
Colors of truck bed air mattresses are typically blue or brown.
The uses for this uniquely designed air mattress are many! You can camp out in the back of your truck if you decide the fish are just biting too well to leave your favorite fishing spot.
Tailgate parties or race days are another great time to use an air mattress in the back of the truck. Get there early to save your spot and still be able to sleep in style so you're ready for an exciting day of sports or car racing.
Truck tents make the use of a truck bed air mattress even more attractive because you can enjoy the privacy the tent gives you while enjoying the comfort and support of the air mattress.
Going hunting with your buddies? Take along the air mattress so you can stay overnight to rise early and hunt during the morning hours or stay up late night hunting and know you have a comfortable place to sleep when you're done for the night.
Traveling can be challenging when you can't find a campground when you're ready to rest for the night. Put up the air mattress and your truck tent and voila, you have sleeping quarters for the night. Even in a campground use the truck mattress in place of another tent or instead of getting another campsite - saves money and space.
