Is there anything special about the mattresses in an RV?

Can i just buy one from a mattress store?

Measure it, many RV mattresses are shorter. You will rarely find the best deal at Camping World, search online for what you need.

Decide what mattress and model you want then shop for price. Give CW a shot but it’s price that matters.

NO! If you like memory foam, they are FANTASTIC for campers. You can easily trim them to size if you need to. RV mattresses tend to be very flimsy and uncomfortable, no matter how expensive they are.

Measure!!! Many are standard with rounded corners. Purchase a mattress in a box. We went from a King to a Queen had to cut part of the width off the plywood. This gave us more room to walk around the bed.


Please give me enough troubles, uncertainty, problems, obstacles and STRESS so that I do not become arrogant, proud, and smug in my own abilities, and enough blessings and good times that I realize that someone else is in charge of my life.

Measure the size of the platform exactly and check with bed in a box.

We measured ours and it was a standard Queen, went shopping at a mattress store and got a great mattress for a reasonable price.

Last time I upgraded, I found that Phoenix had a matress factory. They custom make innerspring ones.
They will make any dimension you want, any spring style, thickness, pillowtop etc.
Price for one comparable to a single was 220.00.
13"thick pillow top. Far lighter than the foam ones. So comfy it is now in my new momentum.

Some mattress sellers will order custom sizes.
