Types of Volvo Truck Mattresses
There are many types of Volvo semi-truck mattress, all of which can be theoretically customized to fit perfectly. However, certain types of mattresses are more advantageous to customize than others.
Modifying innerspring truck mattresses to a custom size and shape can be very expensive. They are also difficult to install into your Volvo tractor. Therefore, they aren’t recommended.
Mattresses manufactured from high-density polyurethane foam are a much better option for your Volvo truck. The cost to customize this type of mattress is very reasonable, and it can be cut to fit any Volvo bunk size and shape.
If you’re looking for even more comfort and a more luxurious feel, a mattress made from a polyurethane foam base, topped with memory foam, is your best option.
Volvo Truck Replacement Mattress Sizes
Volvo truck mattresses are usually manufactured to fit specific truck models. The most common sizes are listed below. However, it’s important to remember that a foam mattress can be easily customized, no matter what size you need:
• 36” x 73”
• 36” x 79”
• 38” x 75”
• 48” x 75”
• 53” x 75”
• 60” x 75”
• 60” x 80”
• 72 x 80”
Another option to consider is the mattress thickness. Volvo truck mattress replacements are usually 5 to 8 inches thick. The 5-inch thick mattress is an excellent choice for a Volvo that has limited headroom. Of course, the thicker the mattress the more comfortable it will feel; but it must fit your truck bunk. So, if an 8” mattress will fit in your bunk, we recommend opting for that thickness.
New Volvo Truck Sleeper Options
Volvo understands the importance of their drivers sleeping well when stopping for a break on the road. As a result, their new trucks have been specifically designed to create space and sleeping areas that are large enough to be comfortable.
Here is a recent 2018 listing of Volvo models and their sleep area specs:
• VNL 400 has a 36-inch wide bed with a 42-inch flat roof. It is considered a “luxury” truck.
• VNR 640 has a 61-inch mid-roof sleeper that is called a “small bedroom.”
• VHD 430 has a 36-inch-wide by 79-inch-long bunk.
• VMN has various models with excellent sleeping accommodations available for one to two people.
• VNX features a 70-inch sleeper and is designed to make sure the driver gets plenty of restful sleep.
Measuring for a New Truck Mattress
When you’re ordering a new semi-truck mattress, don’t simply measure the mattress you’re replacing. It is important to measure all the areas of the bunk. This includes sides, ends and depth.
If the mattress platform isn’t straight on all sides, we recommend making a template of the platform. (More information on how to make a template can be found here).
