Finding the right boat or RV can be as satisfying as purchasing a new home—especially here in Holland with the beautiful coast of Lake Macatawa just waiting to be explored. But what’s a home without somewhere to sleep? It’s crucial to have a comfortable sleeping situation to maximize on work, recreation, and everything in between. Here are some tips to find the right custom mattress for a boat or RV.
Benefits of Going Custom
Since beds on a boat or RV are not standard to the ones used in a house, a custom-made mattress is worth considering. Not only does this ensure a perfect fit for unconventional spaces, but the buyer can also specify firmness and material according to their sleep preferences. Even factors like weight and shape can be customized depending on the unique needs of the space. Buis Mattress can create mattresses with specific sizes, dimensions, and materials to make sure that it’s the right fit for any particular property.
Get the Measurements
It’s a good idea to make sure measurements of the space are taken before mattress hunting. When going custom, factor in the perfect height to accommodate low ceilings, and don’t forget about added factors like rounded edges that will affect measurements. Often, boats and RVs will have nearby storage, drawers, and hinged doors around the bed, so be sure to account for those opening and closing when measuring for the ideal mattress.
Shop Mattress Tops
Depending on how firm or soft someone wants their mattress, mattress toppers are a great way to adjust for an overly firm mattress. These affordable toppers may not come in the right size, but because of their materials, they can often be easily cut into the exact dimensions of the RV or boat mattress they need to cover. From latex to high-density foam, mattress toppers come in many different styles, allowing for complete comfort no matter the material.
Don’t Cut Corners
It can be tempting to assume that because one usually spends less time in an RV or boat than in a home, it’s a good idea to cut corners and get a cheap mattress. Some even try to use an old mattress and cut it down to size. But the truth is, missing a night of restful sleep can easily throw an entire vacation or trip off balance, so it’s vital to treat this mattress shopping experience just like one would for a home mattress and ensure that the mattress materials and handiwork are of the highest quality.
