Hi Everyone. Well, after 15 years the RV-Dreams Community Forum is coming to an end. Since it began in August 2005, we've had 58 Million page views, 124,000 posts, and we've spent about $15,000 to keep this valuable resource for RVers free and open. But since we are now off the road and have settled down for the next chapter of our lives, we are taking the Forum down effective June 30, 2021. It has been a tough decision, but it is now time.

We want to thank all of our members for their participation and input over the years, and we want to especially thank those that have acted as Moderators for us during our amazing journey living and traveling in our RV and growing the RV-Dreams Family. We will be forever proud to have been founders of this Forum and to have been supported by such a wonderful community. Thank you all!!

Size difference of mattress

How much smaller is a queen mattress in a motorhome than a standard queen mattress?  We start our new lifestyle on July 1st.  Currently we are picking our final top three motorhomes and the one thing I have forgotten to do is measure the size of the mattress.

As always any help and opinions are always welcomed.

It depends on the brand and model of RV you are choosing. Some are standard size and some are 6" shorter.

I believe that a standard queen size bed is 60" X 80". It's always a good idea to take a tape measure along when you are looking at RVs.

Some of those odd sized mattresses are hard to find sheets for.

Don't think that just because you are looking at a motorhome or any RV for that matter that the mattress will automatically be the short queen. The only short queen we ever had was in our little travel trailer years ago. Most manufacturers today will probably put in the standard queen. Jim is right....sheets for a short queen are hard to find.

Our motorhome has the standard queen size mattress with pillow top. It is the standard size...I think 60 x 80. There are many MH as well as lots of fifth wheels that now put in King size mattresses. I sure wish we had one of those!!!!

Take your tape measure with you.
