Default Sleeping in bed advice?

Hey y'all, i'm heading to TN this weekend to see my special lady in college since my spring break is this coming week. I'm making the trip from Ohio and i'm going to sleep in the bed of my truck under the tonneau cover HAHAA!

Any advice from you guys that have slept in your trucks? Something you wish you would have brought that you didn't?

That could work, unless it pours rain or something

pickup an air mattress to fit your bed at Walmart, their cheap, comfortable, you'll sleep better, and it won't take up much room to store for another trip later on...I've slept in mine under the tonneau cover with the tail gate down, and used a small tarp over the opening when it rained...

I've slept in mine with a camper top, and I felt cramped. With a tonneau it must be really tight (or cozy)! Maybe you've got a long bed?

Tonneau feels like it would make anyone claustrophobic. I have slept in mine with the camper shell and it is all good.
You won't have a lot of room so try those egg case looking things they put on top of mattresses or similar. Thin, won't take up a lot of room and very comfy.
