This past weekend my wife and I went to camp with a queen size mattress strapped to the roof of our truck. We had to put it top-side down because we couldn't lift it onto the roof racks. I was afraid if I put it top-side up, the bottom might get torn when sliding it onto the roof racks. We went about 3 miles and turned around because it looked like a kite floating in the air. It won't fit into the bed of my Colorado, which has a cap on it. Any suggestions?
take the cap off the Colorado.....transport matress......when you get home ....put cap back on.
My S-10 had a longbed w/ alum LEER cap. Mattresses, right side up. they fit between the ladder supports & a simple rope tie kept them in place w/ no flopping. Grab a pair of 'pool noodles' between the cap and boxspring & tie it onto your cap. even a 'glass cap should support a mattress.

Borrow someones utility trailer like is used for lawn mowers and such. Lay it flat on the deck and strap er down with blocks on the sides so that you don't crush the sides with the straps. You may need to put a piece of plywood down first if it's a metal mesh floor but a good tarp might even be ok. You just need to keep the wind from getting under it. Surely you can find someone with a little utility trailer.
