Restless nights on a cheap camper mattress!

As some of you know, I’ve been living in a travel trailer since the end of 2021 and pretty much loving every minute of it.

One of my favorite things in early on was the mattress. But that excitement fizzled pretty quickly when the foam (I know, I know, foam is cheap!) started to deform as the sleepy nights progressed. In fact, a depression was formed in the area where my hips usually rest. Here’s a pic so you can see the dip.

Crazy, right? I figured I’d just roll with it until my back started to pay the price. Waking up with a sore back ain’t no way to live! So I knew a new mattress was on the horizon but I still didn’t make any changes until…..

After being out of the trailer for roughly three weeks (getting some work done on the slide-out, as I blogged about here), I returned to the trailer and to the uneven mattress. I kinda didn’t even notice that in the few weeks I was sleeping somewhere else, my back was fine. After 2 nights on the trailer mattress– soreness, tightness, and barely able to bend over and touch my toes! That was the last straw.

I went online and found the one I thought would best fit me and the trailer, and it arrived within a few days! Now I have a great mattress, and I’m so glad I made the switch. If you’re suffering with an old, cheap mattress in your trailer, it would be very worth it to upgrade!

Thanks for dropping in!
