RV Mattress Topper Shopping Guide: What to Look For and Where To Buy
Types of RV mattresses
Foam mattresses are a great option for those looking for a mid-priced option. They are firm but also highly durable, making them a perfect choice for active and adventurous RVers.
Air mattresses can be very cheap to buy. Those don’t tend to be very good though. They can be unforgiving, bouncy and transfer cold air from the ground. At the premium end of the market are air mattresses that are said to rival the sleep quality of normal mattresses. Most people still find them a love-it-or-leave it affair though. Air mattresses tend to be used on shorter camping trips or for emergency guest accommodation.
The best air mattresses are self-inflating mattresses. Those have a foam core that decompresses and inflates the mattress. It provides much better comfort and doesn’t transfer cold in the same way as an air mattress without foam in it. Self-inflating mattresses are often focused on hiking and camping but some like the Zempire Monstamat come in a 10cm thickness and are comfortable enough to sleep on for longer stays.
Factors to consider when buying an RV mattress topper
When selecting an RV mattress topper, it’s important to consider your individual needs. Some factors to consider include durability, firmness, and thickness
The first thing to consider is the durability of your topper. The last thing you need when travelling is a topper that is easily damaged. In order to find the most durable option, look for products that are made with high-quality materials. The best mattress toppers should be made from a high-quality memory foam.
How to choose the right size and firmness
First, decide on the size of mattress you need. If you are purchasing a new mattress, measure the length and width of your RV’s bed to find the correct size. If you are purchasing a mattress topper, measure the length and width of your current mattress to find the right size. Many RVs will have a standard-size Queen bed with rounded corners. That makes it easy enough to get either a mattress or mattress topper. Our mattress toppers are specifically designed to fit this type of bed.
Next, decide on the firmness of your mattress. There are a few ways to find the right firmness for you. Many stores will allow you to try out the mattress and see which firmness feels best for you. Alternatively, you can do some research online to find the firmness that is most popular among customers. Finally, take care of your mattress. To extend the lifespan of your mattress, it is important to take care of it. This includes rotating it regularly, keeping it clean, and protecting it with a mattress protector.
Tips for maintaining your RV mattress topper
In order to extend the lifespan of your topper and enjoy consistent comfort, it’s important to follow a few simple maintenance tips.
Rotate your topper
It’s important to rotate your topper at least once every year to extend its lifespan and maintain consistent comfort.
Please note that high-quality memory foam, like that used in Dreamer RV’s mattress toppers, can be heavy. You may need two people to rotate it.
Clean your topper
It’s important to clean your topper regularly to prevent odor build-up and dust buildup. It is recommended that you clean your topper every three months.

Protect your topper
It’s important to protect your topper with a mattress protector to avoid damaging your topper. This will also extend the lifespan of your topper and make it easier to clean. We sell mattress protectors made to fit the dimensions of your RV mattress topper.
Our RV mattress protectors are the ideal way to protect your mattress and mattress topper.
Where to buy RV mattress toppers
There aren’t many different places to buy RV mattress toppers. Many people use standard mattress toppers but these have problems with fitting the shape of an RV’s mattress. Thankfully, you’re already in the right place. Our mattress toppers perfectly fit the dimensions of your standard Queen size RV mattress.
When buying an RV mattress topper online, look for the following:
Find out as much as you can about the retailer before making your purchase. Look at online reviews and testimonials to find out what other customers think about the retailer.
Make sure the topper is made specifically for RVs. Standard mattress toppers do not fit the curved edges of an RV bed.
Find out how the retailer ships their products. It is important to choose a retailer that offers free shipping and a quick turn-around time.
There are many different types of RV mattresses available on the market, and each has its own unique benefits. When purchasing a new RV mattress or mattress topper, it’s important to consider durability and firmness. It is also crucial to take care of your mattress to extend its lifespan and maintain consistent comfort. Now that you know what to look for, it’s time to make the most of your RV experience.
