RVing in America by Cover Bonanza

Friday, October 5th, 2012

Since a good portion of our client base are RV owners, we wanted to share this awesome infographic we found on RVing! It was produced by Cover Bonanza and kind of captures anything and everything about RVing in America. I knew there were a lot of RVers in America, but was still amazed to hear there are over 30 million RV owners in the US today!

Are You Looking For A Better RV Mattress?

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

If you ask most new RV owners how they feel about the mattress that came with their brand-spanking-new RV you will likely hear a moan, groan, or some other unsatisfactory sound. Amazingly, RV’s that can cost upwards of $200,000 are likely sporting a cheap mattress (often times made in China) that cost the manufacturer less than $50.00.

How do I know this? My company, Rocky Mountain Mattress, occasionally attends RV shows around the U.S. and I have had many discussions with many different RV-manufacturer-folks about their beds! The good news is that you can effectively and affordably correct the situation with a little know how.

Custom RV Mattress

Custom RV Mattress by Rocky Mountain Mattress

Your first step should be to determine whether the bed can be made comfortable with a quality mattress topper. If you decide that you can salvage your ability to sleep by investing in a topper you need to now determine whether that topper should be made from a quality memory foam or latex. This infographic we designed might be helpful in making that choice http://www.rockymountainmattress.com/faq/memory-foam-vs-latex.php.

There are a lot of companies that will also be willing to custom cut your topper to fit an unusual RV mattress shape or size. My company will cut the foam for free and charge a small fee for customizing the mattress topper cover if you‘d like one, and we even offer free delivery for all orders within the United States!

If you decide that the mattress topper will not cut it, then custom making a new mattress means you can have the comfort, support, durability, and size that you need in a mattress for your RV. When it comes to what will fit in your space, it’s just a matter of taking some relatively simple measurements or contacting your manufacturer for a schematic (see instructions for working with Airstream here http://www.rockymountainmattress.com/faq/how-to-get-an-airstream-schematic.php). When it comes to comfort and your preferences, then you need to choose which types of materials will be best suited for your needs.

There are a wide variety of materials to meet your custom mattress needs, including memory foams, Dunlop and Talalay latexes, fabric options (CoolMax by Dupont, organic cotton, bamboo, etc.) and more. Now, if this is your first custom mattress purchase all of this information may be very overwhelming. Let’s discuss a few key things to remember when deciding on materials.

First, it’s important to remember that you purchased an RV for the sole purpose of taking the comforts of home with you wherever your travels may lead. This is why it’s important to have the proper support for the many pressure points along the body. You will also want a mattress that will last you a long time and be durable.

The most durable of materials is natural latex. This material often lasts the longest, (up to 20 years) and has an outstanding elasticity that will give great support while you sleep. It’s eco-friendly as well!

After being introduced to the market in the early 90’s, memory foam has become widely popular and for good reason. It’s excellent for its supporting qualities with a unique ability to absorb and support pressure only at the site of the pressure. Memory foam supports your body only where it’s needed reducing the amount of pressure forming elsewhere.

RV Mattress Review: Keeping the Yorkies Happy

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

Hi Dave,

The mattress and scrap piece arrived today exactly as ordered. There was even a bonus to the scrap piece because the 2″ piece was already glued to the 5″ piece so I don’t have to run out and buy spray glue at Home Depot. My wife says your mattress is wonderfully comfortable and she will finally get a good nights sleep when we are on the road in the RV with her two small Yorkies.

Even Yorkies Love to Sleep on Rocky Mountain Mattresses

Thank you and your company again for being precise in the measurements and flexible enough to include the scrap pieces to fill in the odd shapes around the mattress for the Yorkies to sleep on.

Sincerely,

Carl T.

Full-time RVing: to keep the house or to sell

Friday, June 17th, 2011

When pondering whether to keep your house or sell it as you transition into full-time RVing, there are a number of factors involved, and a number of questions to ask yourself to help decide if you should keep your house, or sell it.

Financial Stability
Ask yourself, do I need the money from selling my house to support my full-time RVing lifestyle?
Do I make enough money to support both a house and a full-time RV lifestyle?
Can I rent the house while RVing?
Do I have a large enough parachute in case something negative happens to the house or RV while on the road?
Are market conditions good for me to sell the house?

Lifestyle
Am I 100% confident in the lifestyle choice? If not, can I afford a trial period of 6 months or 1 year of RVing?
Will I return to the same town regularly?
Can I get used to sleeping in a different place every night, albeit in the same bed?
Do I have a comfortable home made in the RV?


From RMM

Once you’ve asked yourself these questions, if all signs point to ‘sell’, give it another few months to be 100% certain in your choice. After that, happy RVing!!

A couple RV’s I wouldn’t want to sleep in

Thursday, June 16th, 2011

 

I bet there is a nasty rv mattress in there too 

We talk to full time RV’ers every day who would like a Rocky Mountain Mattress RV mattress. It is always fun to see pictures of our customers and their RV’s (and no, we have not serviced the “homes” you see here).

Which brings us to these RV’s… now we do respect everyone’s right to have a ‘home away from home’, but when you take that home with you on the road, you should probably ask yourself questions such as:

· Is this mobile home already mobile? – If not, leave it that way…
· If I were to get in a car accident, would this ‘mobile home’ look as if a hurricane blew through? – If so, leave it anchored to the ground…
· Are there real shingles and wood siding on my ‘mobile home’? – If so, you probably don’t want to expose them to too much of the elements…

We’re sure this is a perfectly comfortable, normal RV. However, I don’t think I could sleep comfortably at night knowing that a 20-foot cow was perched somewhere above me. Especially one with such a creepy look on its face.

Custom Mattress for an RV that fit perfectly

Wednesday, October 6th, 2010

We received our mattress on time as promissed and are extremely pleased with it.  It was a custom mattress for an RV that had to fit within a totally enclosed space – and it fit perfectly.  We would like to thank RMM for their great service and all the folks that helped us at Rocky Mountain Mattress.

What You Need to Know About Ordering a Custom Safari Airstream Mattress

Friday, August 13th, 2010

If you own a Safari Airstream or any other type of RV for that matter, you may find that the space you have for a bed in your RV is much different than in a home. Of course, this space is going to be smaller than most bedrooms in a non mobile home, which means that you are going to have to get creative when it comes to furnishing your bedroom in your RV. You can purchase many different sizes of dressers, TVs, counter space and so on, but when it comes to your bed, you are going to have to have custom Airstream mattress and bed made especially for your space.

The first thing that you need to know is what type of mattress you want to purchase. It doesn’t matter if you prefer a memory foam, a latex, or a traditional foam mattress, RMM can make a custom mattress made with any of these materials.

In addition to choosing the type of bed you want, you also need to know the dimensions of the mattress space. You can easily take the measurements yourself, just remember to do it twice to ensure you have the right measurements. To get the proper measurement, simply measure from one side of the bed to the other inside of the bed frame where the mattress is going to be sitting. You will do this for both the width and the height. You will also need to stipulate the height of the mattress. A custom mattress doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. You will find that the prices are comparable to a conventional size mattress in fact our prices are based off of the standard size mattress we have to work from plus a $60.00 “custom fee” for the customization work. So, the price will vary depending on the height and makeup of the mattress. To determine a price, please choose a mattress style and height from among our standard lineup of beds -
