One of the most popular American pastimes is getting into your RV and travel all over the country. If you are going to be spending a lot of time in your RV, you’ll want to spend a little more money on customizing your rig. The most economical thing people can do is getting a custom rv mattress made for their set up. Here are some tips to help you get the perfect custom rv mattress.

The most important aspect of ordering a custom rv mattress is accurate measurements. It’s extremely important because once your mattress is ordered, it cannot be returned or any fees paid cannot be refunded. Most of the time we will only need the measurement of your foundation, where the mattress will go, but the more information we have, the easier it will be.

When measuring the foundation width, make sure that you are measuring from the inside edge to inside of the opposite edge of where the mattress typically rests. To give you a guideline, twin beds are generally 38 inches wide, a full mattress is approximately 54 inches wide, a queen rv mattress is around 60 inches wide, king mattresses are 76 inches wide and California king mattresses are about 72 inches wide. You’ll want to measure the length of the rv mattress in the same manner. To give you a good idea if you are on the right track, twin, full, queen and king mattresses will be anywhere from 75 to 80 inches long and a California king will be 84 inches long.

Another important thing to keep in mind is what the height of the area your mattress is in. Some areas have much lower ceiling clearance, so you will need to measure from where the mattress will sit to the highest place you want to the mattress. In areas that have lower ceilings, you’ll want to make sure your are leaving yourself plenty of room to maneuver.

In case your existing rv bed is an odd shape, you can always make a paper template of your bed to send into our warehouse. This will ensure that you are getting the perfect fit and that your travels will be comfortable.
