It’s hard to live in an RV fulltime when you are dealing with something uncomfortable like the RV mattress. Over the years, we’ve tried several methods of trying to make our RV mattress bearable but we’ve only found one that has truly stood the test of time so far.
How to Make an RV Mattress Bearable
It’s been a while since I posted more about RV Living. Currently, aren’t living in an RV fulltime, but we still do a decent amount of traveling. We don’t live near family and we love camping when we are able to get away for a little bit! We love just about everything about camping and staying in an RV except…
Those of you that live in campers or have a camper or have ever stayed in a camper know exactly what I mean! You want to get a good night of restful sleep! But when that thing has so many springs poking into your back that you end up tossing and turning all night.
We recently had the chance to start using a wonderful topper on our RV mattress this summer. The mattress in our current RV is something like a trampoline. If you sit on one side of the bed while someone else is already on the bed, they may go flying up towards the ceiling because it’s so crazy springy.
IntelliBED Mattress Toppers
I learned about IntelliBED from reading another blogger’s article about their awesome mattresses. I’ve been skeptical about “fancy” mattress for a long time. I’ve known a few friends that have spent some good money on a name brand mattress. But when I laid on their mattress to see what all the fuss was about…I still wasn’t sure.
Of course, I wasn’t about to buy a brand new mattress for our camper. Since we don’t currently live in our RV, full time, it is much more cost effective to go with a mattress topper. We’ve looked at an tried many different toppers over the past 8 years. Memory foam always makes me sweaty and makes it difficult to turn over. Cotton toppers don’t seem to have enough support. Some of those plastic toppers on the market are plain scary. They smell so much like chemicals when you open the package.
IntelliBED makes several different sizes of mattress toppers.There is even one that even fits perfectly on an RV bed! (Just ask them for the short queen.) If you’ve ever tried to fit sheets on an RV mattress you know what I mean by never being able to find anything that fits it. 🙂
The IntelliBED Mattress Topper is made with patented, medical-grade Intelli-Gel and a layer of top-quality soy foam encased in an organic cotton zipper cover. Adding this mattress topper to your existing mattress will give you 2 to 3 times the cushioning support than you already have. IntelliBED products are made with high quality, natural, hypoallergenic material which means you won’t have to worry about off-gassing. For those that tend to be sensitive to chemicals (like me and my son), this is very welcome news.
Mattress Topper Warranty
The IntelliBED Mattress Toppers also includes a 10-year warranty. Something that is notable since I’ve had to toss every topped that we’ve tried after a year at most. Being able to keep this topper for at least ten years will be better on our budget in the long run.
So far, we are enjoying our new mattress topper from IntelliBED! I’ve actually been able to sleep through a full night when we are camping…something I wasn’t able to do before. I’ve even tracked my sleep with a sleep app and I tend to sleep better in the RV than I do at home! We’ve had many guests sleep on the topper as well (since we use our camper as a guest cabin) and they’ve all told us that our camper bed is so nice. Little do they know, right? 🙂
