There are all sorts of things to keep track of when maintaining your RV. From regular deep cleanings to routine maintenance to pest control measures and everything in between, you wouldn’t be wrong for letting some parts of the process fall by the wayside in favor of other more pressing matters. With that being said, it’s pretty likely there’s one part of your RV that hasn’t gotten as much care as it should: the mattress. But how do you know when it’s time for an RV mattress replacement? And where do you turn to get that replacement? Let’s go over everything you need to know.
Signs It’s Time for an RV Mattress Replacement
Just like with a mattress in your home, there are a few tell-tale signs that it’s time to replace your mattress and a few hard and fast rules that apply even if those signs aren’t present.
For starters, look for signs of wear. This can be in the form of visible sagging, unexplained discoloration, staining, or even a faint but unpleasant odor.
Beyond these aesthetic signs, look for qualities that point toward discomfort. This can include tossing and turning during the night, stiffness or pain upon waking, or increased allergy symptoms due to years of buildup in the mattress.
Ultimately, even if your mattress looks, smells, and feels like new, you should be changing your mattress every six to eight years. This applies to your RV mattress, as well.
How To Choose a Replacement
If you’ve discovered that it’s time to do an RV mattress replacement, you might now be wondering what exactly you should look for in an RV mattress. Here’s a checklist of traits every good RV mattress should have.
- The mattress has the right combination of comfort and support to allow pressure point relief as well as proper spinal alignment.
- The new mattress is using premium quality components. Look for high density foams and stay away from the gimmicks
- For two people, the mattress suits both of your sleep needs while still being sturdy enough to keep from moving one person when the other is in motion. Mattresses like “Utopia” and “Divini” by Tochta are highly specialized in this area.
- The mattress is made to fit the exact specifications of your space — something that else that Tochta excels at.
