Sleeper cab accessories can make your time living in a sleeper cab away from home feel at least comfortable as home.
For example, you can have a comfortable bed, you can cook your favorite food, you can groom yourself in the shower, you can have storage for your clothes, gadgets, food, etc.
If you spend so many hours on the road, wouldn't you enjoy finishing your workday and going back into your comfortable sleeper cab for a rest?
Below, find the sleeper cab accessories that'll provide your sleeper cab with that "at-home" feeling just like the super sleeper semi's have.
1. Coffee maker for your truck
Truck drivers enjoy drinking a cup of delicious coffee while being on the road.
So, having an option of making coffee their own coffee whenever they're starving for it may improve the truckers quality of life.
There are specific coffee makers for truckers that can be charged with a 12V charger, which most trucks are compatible with.
Having a coffee maker in the truck allows the driver to make himself 3 to 5 cups of coffee without going out of his truck or having to wait arriving into a truck stop.
2. Portable toilet
The basic design of the semi-truck sleeper cabs doesn't include bathrooms and there is not enough space to add one.
But, if you own a semi-truck with a big sleeper, you can add a portable toilet inside it.
With portable toilets, you no longer have to wait for the next public toilet where you can do your business.
Eating warmed up meals is healthier and tastier.
A microwave allows truck drivers to cook or to warm up the leftovers.
Choose a microwave for truck drivers that is compact and works with a 12V power.
Having a mini-fridge inside the sleeper cab provides truck drivers with the option of keeping their food and drinks at low temperatures. In this way, their food won't get spoiled and they can take it out cook it whenever needed.
It allows the driver to grab more food, put it into the mini-fridge, and roll without stopping.

6. Get a comfortable mattress
Having a good sleep is for a long-haul truck driver.
For that reason, you might want to invest in a comfortable mattress in your sleeper cab. Whether you choose memory foam or a spring mattress, it pays for having a good rest allowing you to be an efficient truck driver.
7. Get entertaining accessories
As a truck driver, you spend a lot of time inside. To entertain yourself during this period you can watch a movie, play a video game, or listen to your favorite sons.
Add more entertaining accessories into your sleeper cab such as HD TV, Blu-ray player, mini-stereo sound system, video game system, and other electronics.
8. Hang up pictures of your family and friends
While being away from your family, it doesn't mean that you can't remember the happy moments being all together.
Consider buying for your sleeper ca a digital picture frame that holds tons of images. When you'll have a look at the pictures sliding, you'll remember the happy moments together with your close ones.
9. Customize your cab to fit your tastes
Add different interior accessories that you enjoy and which give you that “at-home” feeling. You could even install soft plush carpeting. Don’t forget to add window shades for improved privacy at night.
Depending on your budget you can optimize your truck sleeper cab layout exactly as you want.
10. Upgrade your truck seats
You won't spend your entire off-time in the horizontal position sleeping in your sleeper cab. You'll naturally want to sit while watching a movie or working on your laptop.
For that, you can get a comfortable truck seat with added features such as heated or cooled options, massage, vibration, or anything else.
11. Cook on the road
Due to wacky schedules, irregular mealtimes, and unpredictable roadside food quality, truckers have poor diets.
To improve your diet you have several options:
12. Keep an electric blanket
Truck drivers may experience cold nights when they are parked in an overnight spot.
In some cases, an electric blanket may add comfort during the night because sometimes even heaters can't completely warm up the sleeper cab.
