6 Things to Consider When Shopping for an RV Mattress

Shopping for a new RV mattress is confusing. First, there are a lot of different materials to choose from, and each one has its own advantages and drawbacks. Second, no two mattresses are going to be the same size or shape. Finally, there seems to be conflicting information about what you should look for in an RV mattress. This article will give you six things to consider when shopping for a new RV mattress.

1. Quality

When deciding who your mattress will be built by, what material the frame is made of, and what type of foam it will be constructed with, you will want to look for quality. Quality means better craftsmanship, more durability, and higher customer satisfaction over the long term. The best way to determine quality is by reading reviews. The best RV mattress will have a lot of positive consumer reviews, while a poor-quality mattress will have very few or none.

It is important to note here that the term quality is subjective. If you are buying a top-of-the-line mattress made in the United States with materials that have been recycled and handcrafted, you are getting a top-of-the-line mattress at a premium price. You can find lower prices, but there is a reason those mattresses cost less. These mattresses may be poorly made or constructed with poor-quality materials. This doesn’t make them bad products necessarily. It just means they are not going to be as good as high-end RV mattresses.

2. Size

Initially, RV mattresses were all pretty much the same size. They were only about 4” thick, and any mattress that was a standard size would work in any RV. This changed in the 1980s when manufacturers began designing RV mattresses on their own, and it became more common for them to have a wider range of sizes and thicknesses. A couple of decades later, we have an even wider range of options, such as hybrid mattresses, which are thicker but not as deep as traditional mattresses.

3. Foam Type

There are two main RV mattresses: Visco-Mem(tm) and Latex. The right type of foam will depend on what you want from your mattress. Visco-Mem(tm) is a memory foam used in home improvement projects, such as upholstery. It is a high-quality material that is well suited for these applications since it compresses when under pressure and returns to its shape when there is no longer any pressure on it.

4. Durability

It is no secret that mattresses will fail over the long term. Companies want to sell you a mattress that lasts as long as possible, but that doesn’t mean it will be best for you. If you are spending a lot of time outside your RV, you should choose a mattress with materials that resist wear and tear, such as Visco-Mem(tm). Latex is another material that will last much longer than most materials.

5. Comfort

The right choice of mattress is a lot like choosing the right car. You want comfort, reliability, and durability. While you want to get what is best for you, you must be realistic. You don’t want to be paying extra money for something that won’t last as long as you thought it would or that isn’t comfortable enough or well suited for how you will use your RV. Remember that RVs are one of the most expensive places where most people spend their lives daily, so it should be more important than ever to choose the best sleep surface possible.

6. Cost

While cost is not everything when shopping for the best RV mattress, you do need to keep it in mind. You will have many options, and being able to compare shops is key. Don’t choose the first mattress you see. Take your time, look at all your options, then choose the mattress that will give you the best value for the money.

Closing Remark


In conclusion, there are a lot of factors to consider when buying an RV mattress, and it can be confusing. By keeping the six points we discussed in mind, you should be able to make the best choice for your sleep needs.
