Investing in a custom RV mattress or custom camper mattress can be one of the best decisions you can make for your recreational vehicle.  Many people see their RV or camper as their second home and rightfully so — some RVs cost just as much as a house! Even though they feel like second homes, many recreational vehicles do not come with a quality mattress. Why is this?

Typically, the mattresses that are put in recreational vehicles are made to be lighter so as to not weigh down the camper. This means they may take out specific components to make the mattress weigh less, leaving you a mattress that is neither comfortable nor supportive.

Also, a lot of RV companies do not have options when selecting the mattresses used due to the mattress not being standard sizes or heights found in traditional retail stores so they settle for what they can find rather than focusing on a quality mattress.

If you’re in need of an RV mattress replacement, we have a solution for you. Here are some of the benefits of having a custom RV mattress.

1. A custom RV mattress can be made in any size or shape

Unlike traditional mattresses that come in a wide variety of sizes, RV mattress sizes can be pretty narrow. This is because mattresses for RVs often have different dimensions from standard mattresses, and many have rounded corners as well to be able to fit into a standard RV. But what if these ready-made RV mattresses don’t suit your particular vehicle?

Some manufacturers believe that all campers in Houston are made the same — but we know that’s not always the case. At Texas Mattress Makers, we can create a custom camper mattress in your desired size or shape to ensure that it will fit perfectly into your recreational vehicle.

How do I measure a mattress for my RV?

If you require a unique mattress size without any unique corners or shapes, simply use a measuring tape to take the measurements of the length and width of your bed.  It is also very important to note if there is a height restriction. We often find that there is a height limit of around 8-9 inches for some RV campers which will determine the components we can use and therefore which type of mattress we can custom make for your camper.  However, if you need a mattress with a unique corner design, size, or shape, here is how you can take those measurements:

  • Remove the bedding from your mattress.
  • Place your mattress onto a large piece of paper as needed, such as builder’s paper.
  • Use a carpenter pencil to trace the outline of your mattress to create a template of the bed size you want. Be sure to trace the mattress along the edges while looking down so that the pencil mark is barely along the outside edges of the bed.
  • It can also be helpful to measure the space where your mattress will go.

If you are unaware of the exact dimensions you need, you can always bring the original mattress into any of our Houston-area showrooms so that our staff can take the measurements for you. Or, if you’re comfortable, bring your RV to our East Downtown Houston location and we’ll help you measure.

2. A custom RV mattress can be built for your sleep needs

Every individual, regardless of where they sleep, deserves to sleep on a mattress that is made just for them. Your body, your sleeping position(s), and your needs are completely unique and as such, not every mattress is going to be able to give you the best night’s sleep possible.

So, do you need a special mattress for an RV? Not necessarily, but a custom RV mattress can be made especially for you and your needs. Why spend thousands on an RV just to have the worst night’s sleep of your life? Many mattress manufacturers create mass-produced products to accommodate the public by creating one-size-fits-all RV mattresses.

But just because it’s marketed as an RV mattress doesn’t mean it’s a good quality mattress. If you believe your current mattress is not suiting you, it may be time for an RV mattress replacement.

A custom mattress can be designed to suit your individual needs while also tailoring to your personal preferences. For example, if you tend to sleep hot during the night, having a cooling mattress would help to solve the issue for a more comfortable night’s sleep.

3. A custom RV mattress can be whatever type of mattress you want

Most mattresses that are marketed as “RV mattresses” are memory foam mattresses with metal coils and padding. Though this may be a fine choice for some people, not everyone can sleep soundly on a standard memory foam mattress. At Texas Mattress Makers, we have many choices of mattress alternatives to memory foam so you can find what is most comfortable for you.

Well, what’s the most comfortable mattress? That is up to you! Identifying your unique sleep needs will help our experts determine what type of mattress and what components would best suit your needs. That’s the beauty of a custom camper mattress.

Texas Mattress Makers can provide you with a custom RV mattress that is made with you in mind.

Being out on the open road can be a relaxing and adventurous experience — don’t let a bad RV  mattress ruin that! Texas Mattress Makers can provide you with a high-quality custom RV mattress or custom camper mattress that is tailored to the exact size or shape, comfort level, and specifications that you need to get a quality night’s sleep.

Because we hand make all of our mattresses at our on-site factory, you only have to pay for the components made to make your mattress. It’s true! Our factory-direct model allows us to provide the best quality components for a lower price, so you can sleep soundly knowing that you did not break the bank.
