    That's like what I have now. Rolls up and has it's own straps and a bag to carry it. I think it's 3". Pretty comfortable and fits between the fenders perfectly.

    I think next time i need to buy one I'm probably going to look for something with a gel top or something of the like to help with the heat during warmer months.

    I’ve been sleeping on This folding one for a couple years. After my accident in April I slept on it for about a month. My regular bed hurt too much.
    It suits my needs for truck camping. The only downside is the amount of space it takes up.

    Milliard Tri Folding Mattress, with Ultra Soft Removable Cover and Non-Slip Bottom, (Single 75" x 25") https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00W67PJ4M/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_44y8BbK41H5C4

    I also have one of these-I use it when space in the truck is tight.

    And one of these-I use this backpacking. It’s s amazingly warm and light. I’ve slept on snow in zero degrees and it’s super comfy.
    https://www.rei.com/product/881575/therm-a-rest-neoair-xtherm-sleeping-pad

    And one of these-I don’t really use this one anymore. It’s like 20 years old.

    Thank you for all these options and input. Unfortunately none really fit my needs. 2 people and a dog sleep in the bed so It basically has to be as wide as the truck bed.

    The cold made mine pretty firm until my body heat softened it. Took more effort to roll it up.

    I just fold my bedding in half toward the cab when I pack up. Then slide the gear in behind it. So as long as I can fold her, were good

    I'm bed storage challenged. I can do that if I can store my stuff on the roof, which I should be able to do with a rack on the cab and cap. Then all I have to keep in the bed is my backpack and ice chest.

    Ever consider making a platform? Not having the wheel wells makes for a considerable extra amount of space. And then get storage that fits under.

    Cooler goes on top of the platform and it comes out when you sleep.
