When you are traveling, a good nights’ sleep is vital to feeling your best and making the most of your trip. Sometimes you need additional beds and places to sleep in an RV, including, but not limited to a custom sized mattress.
Here’s how to make the best of a compact area and include extra sleeping space so everyone has a quality restful experience at night.
Try a Cab Bed
Some RVs and motorhomes have some overhead space behind the cab. Turn the area into an extra sleeping space by adding some bedding to the area and a curtain so you can sleep without too much disturbance.
If you don’t have any overhead space, you can get a cot frame to fit into the cab as a sleeping pod.
Carry an Air Mattress
Air mattresses are simple solutions for additional sleeping space in an RV and can be stored easily. The sizing of the air mattress will need to be checked to ensure it fits into space in the RV, but this is a quick way to resolve an issue on where to sleep.
In warmer weather, an air mattress can also be used outdoors as a sleeping space, or can be inflated in a tent if the weather is cooler.
Use a Hammock
If you have a compact RV, what you do inside the vehicle will not make a lot of difference to additional places to sleep. If the weather is good, and you don’t have much sleeping room in your compact RV, consider sleeping outdoors.
Some ways you can plan to sleep outdoors include pitching a tent, using a hammock between a couple of trees, or even using the awning on your RV to provide shelter for somewhere to sleep.
Custom Sized Mattress
A great option for making the most of your sleeping space in your RV is ordering a custom-sized mattress. Ordering a custom mattress allows you the flexibility of creating a comfortable sleep space wherever works best for you.
Try the Table Top
Some RV designs allow the table to come down so it is level with the seats, creating an extra sleeping space. If you have a luxury RV mattress that can be stored during the day, that tabletop base will provide a comfortable extra sleeping space in the RV.
Some RV designs have a space between single beds. One way of getting more space is to use a surface to fill the gap so there is a sleeping area over the gap.
Your RV can accommodate more sleeping areas than you think. Try a few ideas and test them before a journey to see which one works for you. Whether you use a luxury RV mattress or a hammock, there are ingenious ways to get some quality sleep using additional space.
