Make your truck feel like a home away from home on long hauls.

Truck drivers often have to drive long hauls that can take multiple hours, days or even weeks spent behind the wheel. When spending so much time in their truck, a truck driver’s vehicle really can feel like a home away from home. To make your truck feel as comfortable as possible, it’s important to put a personal touch and bring in your own items to make long hauls more comfortable and enjoyable.

Personal Touches

Life on the road can get boring and tedious, so it’s important to have little things that brighten your mood. An excellent way to easily add some personality and positivity to your truck is by incorporating decorations of your favorite color. Any artwork, small posters, and photos of loved ones are also great to have around your truck, so you can feel a sense of happiness while on the road.


Unfortunately, it may happen that you have to spend some time sleeping in your truck while on a long haul. To make sure you get the best night’s sleep possible, be prepared by investing in comfortable bedding, a mattress topper, and pillows. To make your truck feel just like home, consider bringing your favorite blanket on the road with you. The familiarity will allow you to sleep soundly and comfortably.

Music And TV

Entertainment is essential while on a long haul drive, and having something good to listen to is crucial. Truck drivers find satellite radio to be a great option, as you have multiple options of radio channels to choose from, including news, comedy, sports, political commentary, and music of every genre. Also, music streaming apps are an excellent way to customize the songs you listen to but be sure to make a playlist before driving, so there is no need to use your phone while behind the wheel. Also, truckers may find themselves with some downtime at the end of a long drive, and bringing along a laptop or small television is a great way to relax and unwind at the end of the day.


One of the downsides to long-haul drives is the excessive amounts of sitting for multiple hours at a time, which can really take a toll on a trucker’s body and health. Exercise is very important while on a long haul drive and helps keep a trucker’s blood pressure low. Check here for some great exercise truckers can do anytime they have a break during a long haul.
