What Size Mattress Fits in a VNL 760?
Traveling for multiple days at a time, particularly through the night, can be quite tiresome. This is especially true for truck drivers, who often spend more time on the road than they do at home. This is why an over the road sleeper, such as the Volvo VNL 760, serves as a major convenience. The Volvo VNL 760 is a sleeper-truck that provides enough space for a bed and various other amenities. This truck model offers a number of semi-truck luxuries that can really make it feel like a home away from home.
About the Volvo VNL 760
The VNL 760 is one of the most popular, best-selling premium high-roof sleepers that Volvo has to offer. The exterior has been engineered to be Volvo’s most aerodynamic truck. It has a sleek design and features LED lighting for all of the exterior lights. The cab has a width of 89.4 inches and a height of 123.7 inches. Although this truck seems massive, it is still nimble enough to maneuver through tight areas of the road or highway overpasses. Since most of your time will be spent on the road inside the truck, the VNL 760’s interior was designed to optimize space and comfort. At the driver’s seat, the interior height of 81.5 inches allows for ample headroom. From door to door, there’s a width of 83.5 inches. Back in the sleeper, you will relax in a living space that has a height of 100.2 inches. Not to mention, there is the option of either a 2.1- or 3.2- cubic-foot built-in refrigerator/freezer. There is also plenty of built-in storage space for your food. Last but most certainly not least, this sleeper provides a space of 81 inches by 39 inches for a high-quality mattress.
Choosing the Right Mattress
As with most over the road sleepers, the VNL 760 comes outfitted with a factory installed mattress. When your factory mattress starts lacking the comfort you want while working on the road, it might be time to look into a truck mattress upgrade. Generally speaking, it can be rather stressful trying to find the right truck mattress for yourself and for your truck. There is a lot to consider in regards to size, comfort, and price. You must also consider the thickness and overall quality of a mattress, which usually varies depending on the mattress manufacturer.
Keeping in mind that the VNL 760 offers 81 inches by 39 inches of space, we recommend upgrading to a truck mattress designed to fit within those specs, such as a SleepDog® Size B mattress, which measures 80 inches long by 39 inches wide. Although the width of the VNL 760 sleeper cab does not allow for an oversized king or queen size mattress, it does make room for a mattress that shares the same length as one of those traditional mattress sizes.
SleepDog® Mattress Options
SleepDog® mattress offers comfortable, high-quality mattresses designed specifically for life on the road. Our mattresses are built to withstand common wear points better than your stock, factory installed mattress, to ensure that you can sleep better and work better.
We also offer two different mattress models with slightly different constructions. Our SleepDog® Mattress has a dual layer 7” memory foam construction, the top layer of which is a 2” layer of CoolRest® gel memory foam that contours to your body. Our SleepDog® mattress was designed to minimize motion transfer while providing ample support for your body, no matter the sleep position. The SleepDog Mattress size that fits best in the VNL 760 is Size B, which measures 39” wide x 80” long. This mattress is easy to setup in your sleeper truck, as it only weighs around 35lbs.
There’s also our BigDawg Mattress. This mattress offers 9” of plush memory foam and can be flipped for either soft or firm support. This mattress also features our CoolRest® gel memory foam, but is topped with a quilted mattress cover to provide additional comfort on the soft support side. The BigDawg Mattress™ size that will work best for the VNL 760 is also the Size B (39” x 80”). Although the BigDawg™ is a bit heavier than the SleepDog® Mattress, at around 45lbs it is still relatively easy to maneuver.
No matter what mattress model or size you choose, SleepDog® mattresses are designed to give you the best rest possible while on the road. Every SleepDog® is delivered with a 120-night trial and a 10-year warranty to make sure you are satisfied with your new mattress, too.
