    I am driving 6 hours to pick up my queen tempurpedic mattress. Dont want to take the truck which gets 14 mpg... will it fit in the back with the rear seats folded down? I can buy a mattress bag and have ratchet straps to compress it and don't mind it hanging out the tail up to 2 feet.

    Conjecture and guesses are welcome but please be honest in your posts, has any one actually tried this with any memory foam mattress on a gen 2?

    Thanks

    Any reason you have to drive 6 hours to get the mattress:whistle:?

    As someone who used to make memory foam (what the temper material is) it compresses easily and we used to have a rolling machine to get as many in the truck as possible;).

    I’d take the ratchet straps and bag to avoid any issues with fitment on your trip(y).

    It's in my other house up for sale that just went into escrow. I have to travel up there anyway for other reasons, I hope I don't get there and it doesn't fit

    The mattress is all you have left to haul:whistle:?

    If you have the straps and bag, you should be fine;).

    We used to roll them and shrink wrap them until the weight limit was reached on the semi:).

    You could fit a lot more that way then just layin them flat (y).

    How used is it?
    3-4 years old,so much use, sweat, don’t bother, newish, grab a cheap strap system, 11/2” or less roll it and cinch it in steps, slide it in.
