12 Best Short Queen RV Mattress Upgrade Options

Not getting a great night’s sleep in your home away from home? Perhaps due to a very uncomfortable mattress? The great news is that it’s super easy (and not crazy expensive) to upgrade your RV mattress. Check out these options and pick your favorite!

Expanded RV Mattress

If you have hung out on this site for more than a few minutes, you might have come across a mention of our favorite RV upgrade to date: upgrading our camper mattress. That’s because I have mentioned the upgrade in a number of posts. Our factory-issued mattress was a horrid concoction of plastic mesh and we never got a comfortable night of sleep on it. We picked up a new mattress online and never looked back.

Short Queen Mattress Size is the RV Standard

When it comes to most typical camper beds, the standard size mattress is a Short Queen. This is not a solid rule though, so please make sure that you are certain that your RV mattress is a short queen size.

We have a 28 foot travel trailer and the bedroom has a short queen mattress.

Vacuum-sealed Memory Foam Mattresses

One thing that made the mattress upgrade process seem daunting was the concern that a new mattress might be difficult to fit inside of our camper door. So rather than risk arriving that the camper a new mattress that we couldn’t get inside, we turned to the internet.  We started to search for a short queen mattress that would arrive vacuum-sealed and much smaller than its eventual expanded form.

If you have never purchased one of these mattresses, they are pretty  awesome. They arrive in compressed form with most of the air having been sucked out of the bag. Only after you cut the bag open does the air rush in and the mattress expands.

  1. Thanks so very much for the info. I am remodeling an old
    14ft camper trailer. I wanted to put a real mattress but did not know where to find a short version of it they even existed. I am so excited now, especially to see that they are affordable!

    I really appreciate the other items you featured. It would have taken years of camping to think of searching for them. You made my day!

    1. I’m so happy to hear that the post was helpful! Best of luck with the remodel – and enjoy the comfy mattress!
