    I have 2016 Tundra with a DECKED drawer system in the 5.5' bed.. When we go out for overlanding/camping weekends we sleep in the bed on a pair of these self inflating mats, https://www.backcountry.com/alps-mo...fTkFfUkVDLVJSX1JFQy1BTE0wMDBNX05BXzIwMTkwMjA5 side by side and attached with Velcro on the sides, they don't cover the complete bed surface. They inflate to about 2 1/2-3". They are comfortable in the sense that we are raised off the hard surface and we put a heavy comforter on top of the air mats. I've been considering a new sleep surface. I'd like to have more bed coverage, thicker {more comfortable}, easily packed away, fast set up take down time, and possibly have the bottom be moisture resistant if the topper was a to have slight leak. Is there even such a type of mat? I've thought about a RTT mattress or an RV type mattress and even a huge, thick dog bed {or 2 to be able to fill the area}..What are your thoughts?

    I like both of those but would they hold up to having dog claws walking on them? 1 is 75 lbs the other is 50..

    The thermarest should match the durability of the mats you are using currently.

    I currently use a NEMO cell sleeping pad under my bag. I am looking for a more comfortable way to sleep however. I don't like air mattresses, I may be able to use a memory foam pad that fits my 1p tent.
