“Home is where the heart is.” rings true for RV travelers who revel in a lifestyle of communing with nature, exciting road trips, and unparalleled adventure.  No matter where the road leads you, your RV will be a place of love and family bonding.

To make the RV trip beneficial not only to the emotional wellbeing but to the physical health as well, everybody needs to have a good night’s sleep. No one wants to wake up with an aching body or a throbbing headache, especially on a family vacation.

Here are some ways for you to get the most out of bedtime:


  • Install a Memory Foam Mattress


Most RVs already have built-in mattresses, but they tend to be hard, flimsy, and very uncomfortable. Such RV owners can invest in an RV memory foam mattress for a restful night. This type of bed combines a layer of memory foam with support foams or springs.

It provides remarkable comfort and support since it uses your body heat to mold your shape. It lessens the pressure on joints where pain commonly originates. You will feel relief in your back, shoulder, neck, and hips that may get hurt after a full day of driving, hiking, or swimming. It counteracts pressure, making you slumber a most satisfying one. 


  • Invest in comfortable beddings and pillows


Your choice of comforters and blankets also have a significant effect on your sleep. Make sure that you have several types of sheets in store that are appropriate for the weather in your various destinations. Feather comforters are best during cold or breezy nights, but they may get too warm during summer. Keep some light, cotton blankets ready as well.

As for the pillows, make sure that they mimic the pillows you have at home. Do not just grab the excess pillows that you have in your storage. Lumpy, thin, or fluffy? Whatever the preference, make sure that your family will be as comfortable in the RV as they are in the home.

Make sure you have enough pillows and blanket for everyone. Nobody wants a battle for the sheets late into the night.


  • Light plays a significant role in a person’s sleep-wake cycle. 


If you want to get the most out of your slumber, you need to cut off incoming light. Sometimes in the night, you will encounter headlights from oncoming cars. If you are staying in a parking lot, you may get disturbed by the lamp post lights. Install blackout curtains or shades for uninterrupted sleep.

Blackout curtains can also help you ward off the sunlight when the morning comes. It will allow you the glorious opportunity of sleeping in.


  • Try to maintain a regular sleep schedule


Even if you have erratic schedules the whole day, try to stick to a regular bedtime. It holds especially true when you are RVing with kids. Make sure that you follow the nightly routine at home as much as you can.

Cuddle up in your cozy RV memory foam mattress at the same time every night. Allow it to take care of your weary body. A consistent sleep schedule allows your body clock to be stuck to a rhythmic sleep-wake cycle. 

RV life is an adventure that is worth taking with family and friends. It would be best if you had all the energy you can get to keep up with all the fun activities that are waiting for you. Having a good night’s sleep is essential in bringing back that spring to your step.
