It is no secret that most RVs come with the most uncomfortable mattress you will ever sleep on. I don’t know why the manufacturers spend money on a mattress that is as hard as a board. So what can you do about the stiff as a board mattress your RV comes with? Sure, you can replace it if you want to spend $400+ for a new one. For full timers, that is a bargain. Part-timers accustomed to sleeping in comfortable bedding at home may not find it as realistic. For many full and part-time RVers, a mattress topper is the perfect answer. Knowing which RV mattress topper is best will depend on how you like to sleep. Below are some factors to take into consideration.
What is an RV Mattress Topper?
An RV mattress topper is a way to transform that horrible factory mattress into a wonderful sleep haven. There are various types of toppers like memory foam, down, gel, and even over-sized pillow toppers.
Just remember, an RV queen is not typically the same size as a traditional queen. Take the actual measurements and you will likely find the RV queen is 6 inches shorter. (80X60 vs 80X66 on a traditional queen.) We had to cut ours down with a utility knife for it to fit perfectly.

I am a “picky sleeper” if such a thing exists. I like a nice balance between a firm supportive mattress, and one that is also soft and cozy. For me, the best RV mattress topper is a 2-3″ memory foam topper. The factory mattress is firm enough that I feel supported, but the memory foam also feels cozy and soft.
Lucid offers both a 2″ and 3″ memory foam RV mattress topper. It is incredibly well reviewed across multiple platforms, and it is easy to understand why. We have the Lucid Memory Foam Topper in both our Transcend 29TBS and our Vengeance Rogue Toy Hauler.
