    Why would you waste $200 on such a thing? Go to Dunhams and pick up a mattress for $25... just measure your bed, and make sure its smaller than the bed.

    *Bed Dimensions* I was doing this for an air mattress. I figured it might help.

    Just the bed: 74 Inches / Bed & Tailgate: 93.5 Inches / Wheel welds 42 - 42.5 inches

    When it comes to these beds, it takes up the whole bed. So if you have other things that you want to bring with you while the bed is inflated that it's going to have sit on the bed, or in the back of the truck. I think that they would be useful if you don't have a lot of stuff, or a place that you can place the stuff if you do when it's inflated. Rather than that, I think that it would be cheaper just to get an air mattress.

    And if you smoke in the bed of the truck and you light your air mattress on fire you have a fire extinguisher right there. With the mattress that does the whole bed you wouldn't have room for that lol. Safety first

    Have you ever heard of people falling asleep with cigarettes in their hand? It happened to a neighbour, he fell asleep with a cig in his hand. His smoke alarm went off from all the smoke in his apartment. Everyone was okay, no damage. He was lucky I woke up to his smoke alarm and got the landlord.

    So you may doubt, but it could happen.

    Don't have one but I used this one with a 2" memory foam pad a few weeks ago, $10 at Shopko. This is a single size, okay for occasional use. If I was going to use one often I would get the Airbedz or the Truck Bedz as I'm 6'1" and need to sleep corner to corner to stretch out. For two people the Airbedz would be better, but I wonder how much cushioning is over the wheel wells. I would use a 2" memory foam pad for any air bed. I don't like air beds without the extra pad. That would certainly take care of the wheel well issue. But to use the Airbedz or Truck Bedz you need to empty the back of the truck, something to consider.

    Just got one-- I have the 6 ft. bed. It fits perfectly and covers the tops of the wheel wells. For me thats the idea is I don't want a bunch of other crap in the bed. Heck I might wan't to roll around with the wifey or something! So yeah a regular mattress is going to permanently take up storage space. When I stop to camp I'll inflate the mattress and take other equipment out --that's the idea for me. Can't give a full review yet--I'll know more about its performance after this weekend as I'll be camping in Destin.

    I think if and when i do sleep in the back of my truck, I want to look into getting a topper before anything, I just hate the idea of being so...unsafe while i slumber.

    I have one. Yes, it is pricey, but it's comfort over any other inflatable mattress is superb. Because it completely fills the inside contours of the bed, the side walls of the mattress don't bow or shift so it doesn't get flat near the edges like a normal air mattress. The small flaps that cover the wheel wells also adds quite a bit of useable sleeping surface. Inside the bed tent the fit is a little tight, but the tent still zips closed. Looking for a picture. Will edit post once I find it.

    EDIT: Here they are:

    I've got an Airbedz. No complaints. Fits in the back of the truck bed perfectly and is pretty handy to use at home. The wheel well inserts are kinda ineffective but they're only used when you use the matress indoors so not really a concern. Meaning, unless everything is wrapped together in a fitted sheet, they separate easily from the mattress since they're only secured with a bit of velcro.

    The quality of the mattress is top notch. You won't find anything constructed better. You do have to remove everything from the truck but the fact that the mattress fits the truck bed makes it super stable and feels a lot more like a bed than an air mattress. The built in pump is awesome as well. Makes for very quick deflation and storage.

    I don't really have any pics of it. :(
