When you are living in a house, you make sure that your bed is comfortable. There should be no exception when you are on the road or at sea. You will want even more comfort. It will make the trip more worthwhile. Thus, consider replacing the original RV and marine mattress with a memory foam mattress to upgrade your comfort and sleeping experience overall. Memory foam has a variety of benefits and will transform your rest.

1. Pain Relief
As we age, it’s more and more common to suffer from pain and aches. Relieve your back, neck, shoulder and hip pain with a memory foam boat or camper mattress which contours to your body and provides sufficient support. Both your RV mattress or marine mattress may have been low quality and relatively flimsy and memory foam will dramatically improve overall pain and lead to a better night’s sleep.

2. Temperature
The foam is sensitive to temperature in that the bed adjusts to your body heat and also your weight. When your body temperature rises, the boat or motorhome mattress gets softer enabling you to sleep more comfortably. If you suffer from body pain, those pain areas heat up in response. A memory foam mattress will actually respond to those temperature variations and provide additional comfort where needed most. Moreover, on cold winter nights, the bed retains heat giving you the warmth that you need for a good night’s sleep. If you’re having trouble sleeping during the summer due to the added heat, try these tricks to keep cool during the night.

3. Durability
Memory foam mattresses are particularly long lasting. Whereas your typical spring mattress might remain sturdy for a few years, memory foam can last up to 10 or 15 years, which is perfect for a boat mattress or motorhome mattress. While some memory foam mattresses have a combination of springs and memory foam, and others have a combination of high density, high resiliency polyurethane foam and memory foam, they are often covered by warranty and can last for years (don’t purchase one unless it has a 5 year warranty).

4. Hypo-Allergenic
If you suffer from allergies, choosing the right marine or motorhome mattress is crucial. Memory foam mattresses are hypo-allergenic. They do not trap dust mites, and they do not mildew. The polyurethane foam contains in the bed keeps away the dust mites and other allergens for an extended period.

5. Consistent Rest
Whether your boat is swaying on the ocean or your RV is parked in a rocky embankment, it can be tough to get the same quality of sleep that you might in your bed. A motorhome mattress or marine mattress tends to be smaller and thinner than the mattress you have on your bed at home. Counteract these difficulties with a terrific memory foam replacement mattress, which will prevent you from moving as much in your sleep and provide a sturdy, comfortable sleeping surface.

6. Stability
Standard innerspring trailer or boat mattresses allow movement to be felt all over the bed. This can be challenging if you sleep with a partner or are in a moving boat or vehicle. On a memory foam mattress, there is no motion transfer, no matter if the support layer is of spring or foam (learn more about support and comfort layers here). You’ll get a great night’s sleep, undisturbed by your partner’s tossing and turning or the motion of your RV on the go.

Most people feel that a good night’s sleep is important while at home. However, often the mattress used while on the road or the water is overlooked. Buying a mattress is a personal choice, but memory foam mattresses provide quality sleep and health benefits unmatched by a standard spring mattress. So think through these great benefits when you consider whether a memory foam marine or RV mattress is right for you. In any case, if you are looking to fully enjoy your next traveling experience, first start by replacing your RV mattress or marine mattress.
