Do you wake up in the RV feeling unrested with an aching back or neck? If so, you may want to upgrade your RV mattress. Most of the factory-made RVs come standard with a fiber-filled mattress that is extremely uncomfortable to say the least.
These Quality RV Mattresses are Worth the Money
We spend about one-third of our lives sleeping. Getting a better’s night sleep every night has been proven to improve your health in many ways.
However, before you throw out the junky mattress that came with your RV, do a little research to determine which mattress would be right for you. There are RV mattresses of all different sizes, prices, and firmness levels. Here’s a look at 5 of the best RV mattresses that are currently on the market.
1. ORB Performance Hybrid Mattress
Off-Road Bedding, founded in 2019 by rider and off-road enthusiast Josh Streeter, specializes in premium mattresses for RVs, toy haulers, and sprinter vans. Their top-of-the-line ORB Performance Hybrid Mattress comes in three firmness levels and a range of sizes including RV queen, RV king, and RV short king.
The 13-inch mattress is constructed with six layers for cloud-like comfort including memory foam, high-density foam, and encased coils. The price varies depending on size, starting at about $1,100.
2. Sedona RV Mattress
If you prefer a firm mattress, you may want to consider the USA-made Sedona Firm RV Mattress. The Sedona mattress is popular with side and back sleepers as it provides ultimate support from its proprietary dense foam. The foam, along with the organic cotton cover, are both hypoallergenic and dust mite resistant.
Sizes range from an RV king, queen, and queen short to a three-quarter, full, and twin bed. With prices ranging around $200-400, the Sedona is one of the most economical RV mattresses on this list.
3. Brooklyn Signature Hybrid
Brooklyn Bedding makes a line of quality RV mattresses including their most popular option, the Brooklyn Signature Hybrid. Made with two patented foam layers and individually encased coil support, the Brooklyn Signature Hybrid provides the same luxurious comfort as other RV mattresses, but at a more affordable price of $599. A variety of sizes are offered from twin to RV king and California-king size.
Linenspa offers one of the highest-rated mattresses on Amazon: a revolutionary hybrid mattress that combines the pressure point relief of memory foam with the reliable support of a traditional spring mattress.
The hybrid mattress is available in either 8-inch, 10-inch, or 12-inch heights as well as in all of the standard mattress sizes. Along with hypoallergenic memory foam, the mattress has 6-inch steel coils to provide a comfortable sleeping surface with a medium-firm feel.
5. Zinus Sleep Master Memory Foam
Another excellent RV mattress readily available on Amazon is the Zinus Sleep Master Memory Foam. The 8-inch queen mattress is made of three layers, including 2 inches of memory foam for conforming comfort, 2 inches of pressure-relieving comfort foam, and a 4-inch high-density foam base for stability. With prices around $375, it gives you the best bang for your buck.
Bonus – RV Mattress Topper By Dormeo
A new player in the RV mattress world is Dormeo. Dormeo has recently released premium mattress toppers in Short Queen, Short King, and King Size. Adding a great mattress topper to your RV mattress is typically easier and less expensive than replacing the whole mattress. You can learn more about Dormeo in this product review on Camper Report, and in this RV LIFE article.

Thomas S Hyde says
You left out the best mattress. The sleep number is not only the most comfortable but also the lightest. Also allows two users to choose their own level of firmness. Not sure why it was not included. It is standard equipment on many high end Class A motorhomes.
Bryan S says
I thoroughly agree. We have one in our GD Reflection 337RLS that I installed. Very enjoyable nights sleep. No more sore back. Also have one at home.😎
Judy Carr says
Our bed is in our side tip out. When you retract the tip out you have to fold up the mattress. Ours is very uncomfortable. Do you make replacements for folding queen size mattresses?
Dr. Mike says
Mr Hyde beat me to it!
Why was the Sleep Number kept off the list? We put a thin (1.5 inch) topper and it is more comfortable that our bed at home.
Blane Robinson says
Wilderness RV Mattress is the best!
Wilderness collapses quickly. They’re just shitty Brooklyn bedding rebranded.
Joe White says
I agree, we have the Wilderness Montana Hybrid. Going on three years now and it is just as comfortable as it was on day one!
We just ordered our second Sleep Number bed. Besides the comfort of an air mattress the lightness makes it so much easier to change the sheets. We have a Class C motorhome and appreciate any place we can lessen the payload.
Michael Dougherty says
I agree. We replaced our Denver mattress on a Thor Tuscany 45AT after just three years. We chose the Sleep Number bed because we had a Tempurpedic Hybrid (dual-dual air bladders) at home and it suited us very well. We have not been disappointed with the new bed in the motorhome … we have no problems oversleeping in it any day of the week!
What happened to the first one?
Rich Weingand says
We have a hybrid RV queen by Verlo. Very comfortable and reasonably priced.
Milton Bland says
We have had a Toshta in our Melbourne for four years and love it. It is a folding mattress that folds up when the slide is retracted.
steve alvin says
It would be great if these companies started showing at RV shows so you could test a mattress out. I know most have return policies but we all know the hassle with that.
Nancy Berthiaume says
we bought a 2020 Keystone Passport 239ML. It came with the most uncomfortable queen mattress EVER! We bought the Zinus Memory Foam mattress and love it! Highly recommend it for those who don’t need or want a firm mattress.
Scott Evans says
How about weights of comparably sized mattresses? I have to lift up my mattress to access storage underneath and the websites don’t seem to provide this info. Thank you
Sleep number is by far the best to put in your RV. We have a king size and love it. My husband has a bad back and this bed lets him adjust the firmness as he needs it where I love the soft side of things so I keep my side soft. This is our 2nd sleep number. We had one in our home for 15 years. I can not even think about sleeping on any thing else.
I’m afraid to use a sleep number mattress after we had such a horrible sleep experience with the one we bought for our house. We sent it back but they would not refund us for the base. We hated the sleep number even after sleeping on it for many nights.
Martha Effinger says
For smaller trailers like the Casita and Scamp as well as all others the Southern mattress is the way to go. They have so many orders for the smaller trailers they will round the back corners to fit the rounded corners of the trailer. These mattresses are comfort at its’ best.
What about a mattress that folds – for slide out beds? I thought that might work well in a camper, especially when trying to make the bed, and taking it in and out of the camper.
It’s amazing that no one has never mentioned The Heartland Mattress company Out of Shipshewana Indiana. It was a option on our Riverside model 193 camper. Best matteress you’ll ever find Not cheap. But was best $ 750 you’ll ever spend !
William Cook says
What about the split mattress for a slide out. Upgrades and covers to protect them?
Not So Free says
That’s my problem. I’ve tried contacting a few places and I guess they thought I was kidding when I said the mattress has to fold. They never answered.
We are FT RVers on a class A Bounder. Our select comfort expired. We found a queen size purple mattress that fits exactly the space in our bedroom. It was on sale at Mattress Firm for $500. A great deal, since original price was $1200+. We are sleeping wonderfully on our new mattress.
sylvia jones says
we have recently traded our pull trailer in for a 22 ft motorhome with a side out bedroom…we are struggling with the mattress even after adding a 4 inch memory foam pad. would love to hear options regarding better mattress for the slide out situation! thanks all!
Gene Bellegarde says
No Froli mention?
I travel alone in a truck camper so I got rid of the cheap, thin queen innerspring mattress that came with the camper and replaced it with a twin sized Coleman air mattress. Now I have more space in the cab-over area to add plastic storage cabinets. The two unforeseen problems I encountered were insulation and changing altitudes but they were easily solved. The mattress came with battery powered pump so, although inconvenient, it was easy enough to adjust the air pressure when changing locations in mountainous areas. In cold climates it was like sleeping on a block of ice but that was fixed by adding a memory foam mattress topper. Now I have a crude and inexpensive sleep number bed!
Please include weights of various options, we need to lift a king mattress to access a large storage area underneath The ideal rest that came with our Journey 36M is horrible!
Stacy Lorenzen says
What is a good mattress for a sprinter van? It has seats that fold down and then needs some kind of topper. I tried Dormeo and it seems too firm. Any suggestions? it has to be moved in and out. Is there a good inflatable?
Thanks for any suggestions.
I’m disappointed that no one is answering the people who require a fold-able mattress for the RV slide-out. I have that same situation, but I haven’t seen any solutions in this article or the comments.
Dalton Bourne says
This Zinus mattress is great for all sleepers really, having slept on my side, back, and belly, I haven’t woken up with a stiff/sore anything thus far. Sleep comes on quicker, I sleep deeper and longer and usually wake up in the same position I fell asleep in (the same goes for the GF and doggie as well!). The mattress had no noxious odor, maybe a little plastic the first day, but within 24 hours it dissipated and smelled fresh. One common criticism of memory foam mattresses is temperature regulation, aka “sleeping hot”, but no worries, this mattress is cool and I run hot all the time, even for me it was never too warm nor was it too cool, this is my “Goldilocks” mattress!
