In our poll this week four brands come up again and again as the best mattresses for campers; Zinus, LinenSpa, Lucid, and Signature Sleep. These mattresses are shipped in a box small enough to fit through a camper’s door.
Once in the camper’s cabover, you open the box and the mattress expands into shape. That’s about the easiest truck camper mattress installation you’ll ever hear of.
After looking into these four popular brands, one mattress stands out for (1) the quality and quantity of its online reviews, and (2) the availability of an RV short queen size. Plus a lot of TCM readers rave about it.
Top 5 Mattresses for Campers
1. The winner is the Zinus Green Tea RV Short Queen 8-inch Memory Foam Mattress. It had the most votes in our poll.
The Zinus offers the RV short queen size where the other mattress brands only offer the standard queen. Keep in mind that some RVs will not fit a standard queen.
The LinenSpa, Signature Sleep, and Lucid brands also receive positive reviews, but not quite on the same magnitude as the Zinus.
Note that all of these mattresses are available in different sizes. Some are also available in different heights should cabinetry clearance be an issue. Most readers report purchasing an 8-inch mattress for comfort and cabinetry clearance.
Here are the other three most popular mattresses as reported by TCM readers:
Pop Up Camper Mattress Recommendation
For pop-up truck campers, the Exped self-inflating sleeping pads are an interesting option mentioned by readers. We had not heard of Exped prior to this survey and are interested to learn more about the company and products.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to this week’s question about what we sleep on in our RVs. Many fellow campers will now sleep better and in more comfort.
