[Top 6] Best RV King Mattresses for 2022

Are you on the hunt for a new RV mattress fit for a king (or queen, or both)? Not sure where to turn for a comprehensive opinion on the Best RV King Mattresses?

Turns out, you’re in luck. Our team has spent 100s of hours testing out the best RV king mattresses available in 2022, giving you the inside scoop on everything from price and comfort, to size and fit.

We’d like to say we worked hard during the testing phase, but Tom’s snoring in ‘product testing’ kinda says otherwise lol.

In any case, we put the best RV king mattresses to the test, putting together this guide to help you find the perfect choice for your RV. Let’s dive in, shall we?

What is an RV King Mattress?

As the name so aptly implies, this mattress is a rung above its smaller subjects (such as a queen or Full mattress). The RV King Mattress is notable for its larger size, making it accommodating overall, but especially those of us with larger frames, or who prefer to have a bit more rolling around room for tossing and turning. Not that you’ll be doing much tossing and turning on the dream clouds we’ll be reviewing further down 🙂

What Size is an RV King Mattress?

If you’re confused about RV mattress sizes, you’re not alone. Not by a long shot. Sure, most of us are familiar with the ‘usual’ mattress sizes for our homes and bedrooms, but when it comes to RVs it’s common to have questions. Luckily, we’ve got answers. Adding complexity to RV King Mattress sizes is the fact that there are SEVERAL types of RV king mattresses. One example is the very common RV short king mattress, which, as the name implies, is several inches shorter than the regular RV King. 

But this is important! Knowing what size you have in your RV will help you make the right decision on your mattress, saving you the headache if you were to order the wrong size. We always recommend you measure the bed platform before you start searching for your new mattress!

RV King Mattress Sizes

  • RV King = 72” x 80”
  • RV Short King = 72” x 75”
  • Eastern King = 76” x 80”
  • RV California King = 72” x 84”

What is the Difference Between a Regular King Size and RV King Mattress?

While both are spacious and comfortable, there are a few key differences that may make your decision a bit easier. Let’s compare briefly below.

RV King Mattress

Measuring a spacious 72” x 80”, the RV King mattress is a common upgrade for many campers, RVs, and motorhomes. What makes this model stand out is the fact that it’s 4” narrower than a ‘standard king’ mattress, making it both space-saving and area fitting without sacrificing too much surface area.

Regular King Mattress

This is the mattress you are most likely familiar with. Many of us have them in our homes and master bedrooms.
A regular, standard, or ‘Eastern King’ size mattress clocks in at approximately 76” x 80”. They are spacious and often ideal for couples, those who toss and turn a lot, or who like to really stretch out. The downside is that they don’t fit every room or space, especially when we’re talking about an RV.

What is an RV King Radius Mattress?

You know what an RV King mattress is. But what is an RV King Radius Mattress???
What we’ve learned so far is that an RV King mattress can be one of several sizes; but what happens if your mattress has radius corners? What does that even mean?

It’s actually quite simple (although understandably frustrating!) – if your mattress has radius corners, it generally means that the corners at the foot of the mattress are curved, rather than squared off. This is a space saving strategy, and it also means you will be much less likely to smack a leg against the corner of the frame as you navigate around the bed!

What is the Difference Between a Queen RV Mattress and a King RV Mattress?​

Ok, so before we get into this, it’s important to make a small distinction. There are TWO types of Queen RV mattresses: an RV Queen, and an RV Short Queen.

RV Queen Mattress: Familiar with a standard queen mattress? Then you’re in luck! The RV queen mattress measures in at the same dimensions as does a standard queen, coming in at 60” x 80” (W x L).

RV Short Queen: As you may have correctly guessed from the name, an RV short queen mattress measures the same width as a normal queen (60”) but comes in shorter, usually by 5 or six inches.

What is the Difference Between a California King Mattress and An RV King Mattress?

Again, we have to make a couple of distinctions here. There are two types of California King Mattresses. A regular California King, and an RV California King.

Standard California King Mattress: A California King mattress typically measures 72” x 84” (L x W), as compared to the RV King measuring in at 72” x 80”.

RV California King Mattress: By contrast, an RV California King measures 72” x 84” (L x W), making it narrower than an Eastern King, but longer than a California King.

In Conclusion

We completely understand the frustration involved with finding the right mattress for your RV. However, achieving a better night’s sleep is easier than you might think! Feel free to reach out if you have any questions – we’re always here to help! 😊
