Lippert Components’ new somnum Sleeper Series mattresses now includes the Discovery — a 10-inch latex foam mattress with a combination core. It pairs a thick polymer spring base core with a natural latex upper core.

The end result is the support and durability of a steel coil innerspring mattress without the extra weight, the company says.

The three-inch natural latex upper core delivers elite cushioning for pressure points like hips and shoulders.

The Discovery’s Euro-top construction comes complete with somnum’s premium soft-knit cover; and an extra inch of quilted foam is sewn in to the cover for added luxury. The mattress is available in multiple sizes, supporting most sleeper makes and models.

“A comfortable mattress is a relatively small investment to a truck’s sleeper. A quality bunk mattress may entice a driver to join your company, stay with your company, and might deter them from leaving. It’s certainly an important factor for drivers who spend 200-plus nights on the road every year,” adds Michael Padrnos, business development manager.
