Lippert Components Inc. introduced the Odyssey, the latest in its somnum mattresses for the heavy-truck market built to maximize comfort for big and tall sleepers.

To provide a better night’s rest for the heavier sleeper, the Odyssey was designed with an enhanced high-profile 364 Series innerspring core and a 3-inch density foam topper. Together these features provide increased durability and stronger support. The springs in the 364 Series feature a higher coil count and a stronger gauge wire than standard innerspring mattresses, according to the Elkhart, Ind.-based company.

“We had so many fleet managers ask us if we had a mattress that could support drivers who are 300 pounds or more, that we realized there was a real void in the marketplace,” Mike Padrnos, business development manager at LCI, said in a statement. “After hearing the stories of how these drivers were bottoming out and flattening the generic 4-inch and 5-inch foam mattresses out there, we knew we could develop and deliver a robust and supportive mattress for these drivers.”

All somnum mattresses the company manufactures are made in America. LCI has been producing quality mattresses since 1997. Combined, LCI’s Goshen, Ind., and Nampa, Idaho, facilities produce more than 3,000 mattresses every day for multiple markets, including recreational vehicles.
