AbstractAn improved sleeper bed for over-the-road trucks comprises a first upper frame and a second lower frame with an air spring mounted between the first and second frames for dampening the movement of the frames toward one another. A pair of scissors-like struts extend between the upper and lower frames and allow the upper frame to move up and down according to the amount of force thereon. A pair of pillow block bearings are mounted to braces on the lower frame. A pair of guide rods extend downwardly from the upper frame and are telescopically received in respective pillow block bearings. The pillow block bearings allow the guide rods to shift or pivot slightly when horizontal forces are experienced by the sleeper bed so as to reduce the shock felt by a user thereon.
