  • RV Mattress Sizes & Dimensions

    In an effort to sleep as many people as possible, RV manufacturers have carefully customized bed sizes. The result is that some RV mattresses are smaller than their household counterparts and use a built-in bed frame without box springs. There is not a single standard for RV mattress sizes. Width and length can vary, as can depth. When shopping for a replacement RV mattress, start by measuring the mattress you have now, as well as the platform area for the bed.
     
    RV Mattress Sizes & Dimensions

    Twin RV Mattress Dimensions

    Often disguised as seating in an RV, twin beds (also referred to as single beds) may also be arranged side by side or as bunk beds. Some twin RV mattresses measure 39 inches by 75 inches, which is the same as a single bed designed for home use. Some are slightly narrower, measuring 38 inches by 75 inches. A few RVs may have room for extra-long (XL) single mattresses, which are 80-inches long. Twin mattresses can accommodate one child or one adult sleeper, although the length could be a bit too short for taller adults. 

    Three-Quarter RV Mattress Size

    Some RVs are designed for a three-quarter mattress, which measures 48 inches by 75 inches. This size is between the dimensions of a twin and full mattress. It is sometimes referred to as an antique mattress. 

    Full-Size RV Mattress Measurements

    Also referred to as double beds, full beds are the smallest mattress size intended to sleep two people. Most full-size RV mattresses measure 53 inches by 75 inches. These dimensions are the same as those of a standard full-size bed designed for home use. 

    Queen RV Mattress Dimensions

    A standard queen bed measures 60 by 80 inches. A queen size can be good for growing children, taller adults or couples. In an RV this size is called a regular queen. Some RVs accommodate a queen short mattress, which measures 60 inches by 75 inches. 

    King RV Mattress Sizes

    An RV king has the same 80-inch length as a regular king mattress, but most are narrower, measuring 72 inches wide instead of the standard 76 inches. Higher-end large RVs are sometimes outfitted with California king mattresses, with dimensions of 72 inches wide by 84 inches long. King beds are generally the best choice for couples. Each person will have a sleeping space equivalent to a twin XL mattress. It is also ideal for growing families or for pet owners who may have their pets sleeping with them.

    Choosing an RV Mattress

    There are several factors to keep in mind when shopping for a mattress for an RV, such as the height of the tallest person who will be sleeping in it, desired space for sleeping, and the space the mattress will inhabit in your recreational vehicle. It's important to make sure that any RV you select will fit properly and securely in the designated spot in your RV.
