How to Replace Those Terrible Mattresses in Your RV Bunk Bed

rv bunk bed mattressYour RV bunk mattresses are uncomfortableusually because they're providing little to no support due to the poorquality components inside.

Believe it or not, the components in an average dog bed are usuallybetter quality. Most OEM RV and camper bunk mattresses arecomposed of 2-3" of cheap fiber padding which begins to break downafter only a few uses. It cost the RV manufacturer next tonothing, but the end user (you) gets to suffer with a mattressbottoming out on the plywood after only a few weeks of use.

Below is a photo taken showing the "guts" of the most popular OEM rv bunk mattress found in RV's (made by a company out of Indiana). Fiber pads are usually composed of scrap material blended into a pad consistency. You can easily pancake this material with your fingers which is why it offers you no support and why you usually feel the plywood surface underneath.+
