Replacing Our RV Mattress – Plus a 10% Discount on YOUR Next RV Mattress

Replacing Our RV Mattress – Plus a 10% Discount on YOUR Next RV Mattress

When something on an RV breaks or wears out, you usually know. But some things wear out like a slow drip. An RV mattress is a good example. There wasn’t one particular day we sat up and said “Okay, our mattress is worn out.”

We’ve been sleeping on the same mattress that came with our RV over 11 years ago, and we finally realized that it was time for a new one. But RV mattresses are rarely standard “queen” or “king” sizes, so replacement can be a challenge, especially if you want something closer in quality to a good residential mattress than many of the offerings at a typical camping store.

Compounding the problem is that even standard “RV” mattress sizes won’t fit the many non-standard RV bed sizes, including ours. Finding a company that provides the combination of high quality, choice of mattress types, and the ability to custom-make virtually any size can be tough. Add to that the fact that we’re often in remote areas far from much civilization (where it can be difficult to receive a shipment), and the prospect of getting a great night’s sleep again can seem like an elusive dream.

So we’re excited to announce that RV mattress specialist MattressInsider.com not only custom-built and shipped an awesome mattress for us, but they’ve also agreed to become the newest member of our RV Discounts page. That’s where providers of high-quality RV products offer special savings to RVgeeks viewers. And MattressInsider stepped right up to the plate with a generous TEN PERCENT DISCOUNT on your entire order, both online and on the phone.

Mattress Insider specializes in RV mattresses, including the ability to custom-make almost any size in several different styles. After talking with an adviser to help guide us, we ordered a firm pocketed-coil innerspring mattress, custom-fit to our non-standard-size RV bed platform. They even offer custom-made sheets to fit any bed they make, so we ordered a set of those, too (no suspenders required for these sheets). :)

A mattress is one of those things that wears out so gradually, you sometimes don’t realize that it’s time to replace it until it’s long overdue. Now that we’ve been sleeping on our new one for a while, we can’t believe that we didn’t notice the gradual wearing-out of the old one sooner. It was definitely past due and the new one is awesome… like night and day. ;-)

We are in the market for a queen short firm but a lot has changed since 2016. It now sounds like the 8” luxury gel foam is our best choice. We will call and see if we can try one first. Jim and Kathy

Hi Jim & Kathy! Definitely give MattressInsider a call, as they are excellent at listening to your needs and recommending the right product to make you happy. Also, once you identify the specific mattress(es) you're interested in, you can ask on the phone (or look at them on their website) for the details on their refund policy. For many mattresses, they offer a trial period after which you request a "Donation Authorization" and then you donate the unwanted mattress to a local charity and receive a 100% refund. Not all mattresses offer this, but many do... so it's worth asking about! Good luck! (P.S... we're STILL very happy with our mattress and are sleeping like babies!)

How easy was it to remove your old mattress? Could you explain how it was done? Thanks

Hi Gerald. Getting the old mattress out was fairly easy... it just took two people, a little time, and some muscle. The hardest part was getting it through the doors (inside and out), but luckily the flimsy mattresses installed as standard options from the factory are pretty easy to bend and squish to get them to fit through. And since the new mattress came compressed and rolled up, it came in super easy!

Hey guys ... just a word of thanks for the RV Mattress video as well as the discount code. I ordered my mattress from them as a result of your recommendation and video. The mattress arrived today (two days from the date of order) and it is wonderful! Thanks again. I just uploaded a video to my YT channel (The Paddy Wagon) and shared the links to Mattress Insider as well as your website and YT channel. Thanks again and I hope you get a chance to watch my video.

Hey Patrick! Just watched your video... thanks so much for the mention! Seeing what you've been sleeping on up to now, we bet the new mattress will be like sleeping on a cloud! ;) Hope you have (had?) a great birthday and get many wonderful nights of sleep!

Hi Christy, Consider latex. It is natural, not chemical compostion like most gel and memory foam and you can get it in whattever softness/firmness you want. Also it can be custom sized. We bought ours fron Arizona Mattress. Shipped for free with bamboo mattress topper included.

We are contemplating purchasing the 8 inch Luxury CoolMax Gel Foam, we have an icomfort in storage while building, and are living in our Motorhome with a 6 yr old mattress with 3 foam toppers. We are sleeping in the "hole" and waking up sore. Do you know anyone that has this mattress and is it softer?

Hi Christy,

After sleeping on our original mattress for 11 years... we sure know what it feels like waking up "in the hole"! YUCK! We didn't realize how bad it had gotten until we slept on our new mattress. What a difference!!

Unfortunately, we don't have any experience with the CoolMax Gel Foam mattress (or know anyone who does). But we can tell you that we highly recommend calling and speaking with the customer service representatives at Mattress Insider... they're VERY helpful. And if you tell them what you do/don't like in a mattress, they can absolutely help direct you to what will work best for you. They were instrumental in our decision... and we are very happy with the results.

Sorry we don't have more concrete advice... but hope you get squared away so you can enjoy a good night's sleep!
