What size mattress fits in a Freightliner Cascadia?
Out of all the popular sleeper tractor trailers on the road today, the Freightliner Cascadia tends to be a favorite among truck drivers. The Cascadia has several standard features that make it a popular semi-truck. Freightliner’s design took fuel efficiency into greater consideration, as well as several other features including powertrain offerings, sound dampening, safety systems, and overall mechanical reliability. All of these features were greatly improved over older Freightliner models. The Freightliner Cascadia has a well-earned reputation as a flagship tractor trailer, so it is no wonder it remains as one of the most popular tractor trailers.
About the Freightliner Cascadia
In terms of rest and relaxation, the Freightliner Cascadia has a lot to offer, including sleeper cabins that can extend up to six feet beyond the day cab. The Cascadia also comes with a choice of high-top interiors, offering enough space for overhead storage or even a second bunk. Much of the interior of the Cascadia was designed with driver relaxation and downtime in mind. On the Freightliner Cascadia website, you can actually build your own customized cabin using a selection of features to find the right combination of comfortable amenities.
As with any tractor trailer sleeper, Cascadia or otherwise, you may want to consider replacing the OEM mattress with an upgrade. While stock mattresses from the manufacturer can get the job done for a while, they are prone to some typical wear points and might not have the comfort you are looking for on those long hauls. SleepDog offers a variety of quality aftermarket mattresses which upgrade the comfort and support of the bunk in your sleeper cabin with better supporting memory foam, cooler material, and thicker, more comfortable padding. SleepDog mattresses come in standard sizes, so you can be sure to find an exact size replacement for the stock Cascadia mattress, while also getting a more comfortable and reliable sleeper mattress.
The Mattress that comes with the Freightliner Cascadia
The OEM mattress in Freightliner Cascadia is a 36-inch by 80-inch mattress, which is a common size for truck mattresses. If your truck can come equipped with multiple bunks, like the Cascadia can, then you should measure before buying a replacement mattress to ensure a good fit. SleepDog Mattress makes it easy to get the right size mattress for your sleeper, whether it is for a top or bottom bunk because each of our mattress lines are offered in multiple sizes. We want to make sure that you get the right fit for your sleeper trailer. Two replacement options include the Bigdawg Mattress ™ and SleepDog, A Trucker’s Best Friend ™ which are made to give you the best rest possible on the road. If you have questions about which mattress is the best fit for your semi-truck sleeper, a SleepDog Mattress sales representative would be happy to assist you.
