If you are a truck driver that spends hours or days on the road, your big rig might feel more like your home than your actual house at times. For this reason, you will want to put some time and effort into designing a truck you’re proud of and making the cabin of the semi feel as much like home as possible. Here are some ideas to get you started.
Personalize Your Space
While many truckers invest time and money in altering the exterior of their semi, it is easy to neglect the interior. However, the semi’s cabin is where you will spend most of your time, so why not make it more attractive to look at? There are many ways you can personalize your truck’s interior including investing in some stylish truck accessories, adding pictures of your family, or decorating the cabin with your favorite team’s logo. The possibilities are endless.
Many people consider their home as the place they sleep at night and can get comfortable. Who says you can’t get comfortable when away from home as well? Make sure your seat is comfy and that you purchase extra seat cushioning if necessary. Find a high-quality mattress that fits in your truck along with a good pillow and warm bedding. Add curtains to help keep out light and always have earplugs on hand.
Bring Along Entertainment
Just because you spend your days or nights on the road doesn’t mean you have to miss out on your favorite TV show or give up video games completely. Bring electronics with you and set up a TV so you can get your entertainment fix. It’s also a good idea to bring a Blu-ray or DVD player with you for times when there’s no internet access. You can even have a supply of coffee and cold snacks if you bring along a coffee maker and mini-fridge.
