    Why not rig your bunk with a lee cloth to restrain you in case of hard braking or a crash? I know nothing about the inside of trucks but lee cloths are commonly seen on the bunks of modern sailboats to help sleepers stay put.

    That is a neat idea but doesn't address the primary reason for me wanting to use a hammock in there: I need good sleep when driving for 12hrs at a time.
