What Size Mattress Fits in a Volvo VNL 860?
The Volvo VNL 860 is a top-of-the-line sleeper semi-truck that comes fully loaded with luxuries. Because of its top-of-the-line features, it is a popular choice among professional truck drivers. Interior features include LED lighting, electrical outlets, smart storage, a refrigerator, reclining bunks, and a built-in workstation. Other notable features include an aerodynamic design which can provide over 7 percent in fuel savings.
Rest and Relaxation
When it comes to rest and relaxation, the VNL 860 sleeper cabin comes with a comfortable and roomy 83.5 inches of sleeper space, making drivers feel relaxed and at home. Much of the Volvo VNL 860 comes packed with innovative details such as soft LED lighting, electric outlets for the bunks, easily reachable controls, smart storage areas, a large refrigerator, removable floor mats and more. Overall, the VNL 860 specs create a comfortable and calm environment for the driver. The VNL 860 also offers one of the first integrated reclining bunks in a sleeper. The bunk is fully adjustable, so it is like having your favorite chair in the cab with you. The reclining bunk can also efficiently be stored away to make room for an optional table and workstation configuration.
An OEM Mattress versus a SleepDog® Mattress
As with all sleeper semi-trucks, the Volvo VNL 860 comes with a factory installed mattress. However, even if you are happy with the stock semi-truck mattress that your sleeper trailer comes equipped with, you may want to consider replacing the OEM semi-truck mattress down the road. Be it wear and tear or simply age, you may want to consider a mattress upgrade. While stock semi-truck mattresses from the manufacturer can get the job done for a while and still be comfortable, they are prone to common 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 will maximize the comfort and support of the sleep space in your sleeper cabin by offering more supportive memory foam, cooler, more breathable cover material, and thicker, more substantial mattress padding. The two mattress options SleepDog® offers come in standard sizes, so you can be sure to find the perfect replacement for the stock Volvo semi-truck mattress, while also getting a more comfortable and reliable sleeper mattress.
The Volvo VNL 860 Sleeper Setup
The OEM semi-truck mattress compartment in the Volvo VNL 860 fits a 79 inch by 42 inch mattress. SleepDog® sells most standard truck mattress sizes, making it easy to find the right size mattress for your sleeper. Whether it is for a top or bottom bunk, each of our mattress models are available in multiple sizes. Two replacement options include the Bigdawg Mattress™ and the SleepDog® Mattress, which are both designed 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® Customer Service specialist would be happy to assist you.
