Can I fit a mattress in an SUV?

It depends on whether the mattress dimensions match the vehicle's cargo capacity.

Mattress dimensions

The dimensions of the memory foam mattresses made in Canada by Polysleep are given below.

Mattress Sizes Mattress Dimensions WxL (inches) Targeted sleeper
Twin 38” x 75” Mostly kids and adults living in small spaces like student apartments.
Twin XL 38” x 80” Taller students and teens
Full or double 54” x 75” Single adults with or without pets, teens who sleep diagonally.
Queen 60” x 80” Tall adults, couples who want more space, single adults sleeping diagonally or with pets.
Olympic Queen 66” x 80” Couples who need more space to accommodate pets, people who want more space without getting king-size mattresses.
King 76” x 80” Couple with a large family pet, suitable for master bedrooms (12’x10’)

Standard SUV cargo space

Now that you have a fair idea about the mattress dimensions, you need to see whether the area inside a standard SUV can be appropriate to fit a mattress of a standard size.

While SUVs come in different sizes, the standard dimensions of SUVs are as under.

SUV type Dimension WxL (Inches)
Compact Crossover 66.93” x 151.18”
Mid-size 73.62” x 185.04”
Full-size 80.2“ x 208.9”

Note that these are the dimension of the vehicle, not the cargo space. If you want to lay a mattress flat in your SUV, we recommend you to:

  • Leave a margin between the width of the SUV and your mattress
  • Lower the second row of seats
  • Always double check by measuring your cargo space length and width.

Can a full-size mattress fit in an SUV?

If you wonder if a full-size mattress fit in an SUV, then the answer is likely yes. As we see above, a standard full-size mattress is 54” x 75”, so it is highly possible to be able to lay it flat inside a SUV (if the 2nd and 3rd row of seats are lowered). However, we recommend to double check by measuring your SUV’s cargo space.

Can a twin mattress fit in an SUV?

A twin mattress is slightly smaller than a full or double mattress and can easily be accommodated in a standard SUV.

Can a double mattress fit in an SUV?

Double mattresses are full mattresses with 54" x 75" dimensions and can fit inside a standard SUV.

How to fit a mattress in an SUV?

Although a standard SUV is typically larger than a car, it has seats, whether collapsible or not, with a divider between the back seat and the trunk that can hinder packing in a mattress.

Although not as flexible as a blanket or comforter, mattresses can have some flex and can be folded to fit inside the SUV. To keep your mattress folded, you can use a ratchet straps.

You can also place the mattress flat on the SUV floor if space permits.

Does a queen mattress fit in a minivan?

Minivans are compact vans with a high roof and a flexible interior layout with sliding doors for cargoes or the passenger area.

The average dimensions of a minivan cargo area are:

Minivan Type Average dimension WxLxH (Inches)
Compact van 59” x 87” x 49”
Combi and double cab-in van 57” x 71” x 49”
Combi and double cab-in van extra long 57” x 85” x 49”

As a standard queen mattress has a dimension of 60" W x 80" L, it can’t fit flat into a minivan. A double or full-size mattress would be more appropriate for a minivan.
