Whether it’s for camping, road trips, or unexpected emergencies, sleeping in your vehicle can be a challenge. However, with the right preparation and tips, you can turn your Jeep Cherokee into a comfortable and cozy sleeping space.

Preparation is key

Before hitting the road and spending the night in your Jeep Cherokee, it’s important to prepare accordingly. Here are some things to consider:


Make sure that your car is clean before setting up camp. This means removing any clutter or debris from the front seats and back cargo area.

Window coverings

Invest in window coverings or curtains to provide privacy and block out light during nighttime hours.

Blankets and pillows

Bring sufficient blankets and pillows as well as additional bedding if needed for added comfort.

Setting up camp: Tips & Tricks

Now that you’ve prepared properly for sleeping in your Jeep Cherokee let’s talk about how to actually set everything up:

Seat configuration

Fold down the rear seats of the vehicle completely flat against the floorboard. If possible remove headrests so that they do not obstruct lying down comfortably

Storage Solutions

Create storage solutions by utilizing gear bags/bins under each seat which will help keep them off of what would be normally considered “sleeping” space along with creating more organization inside of an already limited amount of space

Creative ideas:

If still struggling here are some creative ideas on how to make staying overnight more comfortable:

– If traveling alone leave only one side seat upright directly behind drivers seat; this creates ample room
– Use a yoga mat or foam pad underneath blankets/pillows
– Consider adding a roof rack to create more storage space
– Add a bug screen or netting for fresh air while keeping bugs at bay


Sleeping in your Jeep Cherokee can be an exciting adventure and with these tips, it doesn’t have to be uncomfortable.
