Travel Trailer Mattress
Buying a Travel Trailer Mattress?
If you are like thousands of others, you’ve discovered the frustration that comes along with shopping for a replacement travel trailer mattress. Your local mattress store most likely does not carry the size you require, and you are losing precocious hours of sleep on your current bed, due to it’s lack of comfort.
Even if you do manage to find a company that can build your camper mattress, how do you decide what type of mattress to buy? The options can seem endless; not to mention confusing! In this article, we provide some of the basic information to help you in your search for the perfect mattress for your travel trailer.
Measuring The Space For Your New Mattress
This is probably the most important step in the process, and one that many people get wrong! RV mattress sizes do not conform to the typical mattress sizes, and you’ll want to be sure that you have the correct dimensions before you begin your search.
Some of you might be thinking “…but aren’t the mattress measurements provided by the manufacturer?” Yes and no.
Oftentimes the travel trailer manufacturer will include the mattress measurements in the pamphlet, but they are usually wrong! It is very important that you take your own measurements when you are ready to make a purchase.
Travel Trailer Mattress Types
It’s important to choose the right mattress for you and your loved ones. This means picking a mattress that feels right and is made without harsh chemicals. Here are some of the most common mattress types available for travel trailers:
Innerspring Travel Trailer Mattress
Innerspring mattresses are generally considering the most supportive of all mattress. The use of steel coils instead of foam allows the mattress to support more weight. This is a great option if you are looking for a firm and supportive feel to your bed. The only downside to innerspring beds is the lack of ability to highly customize them.
Foam Travel Trailer Mattress
Foam mattresses and memory foam mattresses are the most common of all travel trailer beds. These mattresses can be a great choice when replacing your current bed, as long as you choose one that is made with quality. Unfortunately, many mattress manufacturers will sell mattresses with low-quality materials that break down quickly, causing the mattress to no longer support the individuals using it. If you shop for a foam mattress, check to make sure it is made with high quality materials!
Travel Trailer Mattress Replacement Costs
So how much will it cost to replace my travel trailer mattress? Great question! Typically you will find that most replacement mattresses will cost between $199 and $899, depending on the size and type of mattress you are shopping for. If you live in the United States, make sure you look for free shipping with your new mattress!
