Getting a good night’s sleep is just as important when you’re traveling in a camper as when you’re at home in your own bed.
There’s nothing worse than waking up feeling unrested and sore because of a thin or lumpy mattress whilst you’re trying to enjoy a holiday. You want to start each day feeling refreshed so you can do all the things you want to do in the great outdoors. A comfortable sleep in a camper starts with the camper trailer mattress.
Here’s some helpful info and tips to keep in mind when you’re shopping around for either a new camper or a new camper mattress:
Poly foam mattresses have been used in hybrid campers and camper trailers for years. They are lightweight, durable, inexpensive and can be easily sourced in many different sizes.
You will find that most mattresses in campers with slide out beds are made from foam because they are relatively easy to fold/unfold into place on the slide-out bed section.
Innerspring mattresses give you more support compared to poly foam mattresses and have much sought after ‘anti-disturb’ qualities. But there are many different sizes and styles of innerspring mattresses available, so you need to make sure you pick the right one for you.
At the end of a long day driving, the last thing you want to do is have to set up your bed and then make it! Also, look at how easy the bed is to make. If your camper is very cramped and “you have to go outside to change your mind” you can bet your bottom dollar that it’s not going to be the easiest to make a bed in there.
