Remember comfortable is relative (saving the $$$$ by sleeping in truck on the trip) and sleeping in hotels would be much better but don't have the coin! My son and his wife just had twins and I've got to see them!

During the day while driving stuff is moved back onto mattress to be out of my way. Here are some pics. Also taking some emergency equipment on trip!



Good Idea, I like it..
I recently made a 3000 mile road trip and slept in the front seat. behind it looks more comfy. but I had a bunch of stuff .
I think next trip will be a shell and a mattress in the bed. but I like your idea

Great ideal, I love it! Haha now I'm going to go lay down in my truck and see how I fit, me and some friends might go on a road trip this year and that seems like it would be alot better than sleeping in the seat. Our plan is to to have two people in the bed under the cap and the other in the cab so I might have to make one of these.

Nice setup, indeed! I've never thought about doing that myself, as I've got a Leer topper on my rig (which, coincidentally, is a lot like yours), but it's good to know it's possible...don't forget to include some means of self defense on your trip! Who knows what you might wake up to?

It is rather comfortable! Couple years ago two friends and I took a road trip from El Paso to San Antonio and whomever was "stuck" in the back had the luxury of napping...mind you, it was a lot more comfortable for my shorter friend than it was for me and my other 6 foot + buddy!

I put power steering fluid in along with brake fluid, and fixed a rattle in the door.
