Everybody knows the value of a comfortable mattress, so when you’re on holiday in your caravan or campervan, it’s no different. Whether you get away at weekends or are on the road full time, a comfortable mattress will be the difference between a good or bad night’s sleep.

However, caravans come in all shapes and sizes, and so do caravan beds. In order to maximise a small amount of space, designers must be creative with caravan bed sizes – meaning that it can be difficult to find a new mattress to replace the one that your caravan came with. Standard mattress sizes usually aren’t suitable, due to the custom measurements of caravan beds.

Here’s what to consider when choosing a caravan bed mattress to make sure you’re getting the best possible rest in your home away from home, whether it’s a Burstner, Bailey, Dethleffes, or any other brand.

Custom made caravan mattresses


Measure the space you have for your mattress properly, taking shaped or cut off corners into account. The measurements are likely to be shorter, longer, narrower, wider, deeper, or shallower than a regular single or double mattress, allowing you unparalleled size customisation for odd-shaped caravan beds.


Instead of choosing the standard synthetic fibre used in many mattresses, consider a natural hypoallergenic filling instead. If you suffer from allergies or have sensitive skin, an all-natural mattress will help to alleviate any allergic symptoms that you may normally get whilst sleeping.

We use cashmere, cotton, curled horse hair, lamb’s wool or natural latex, as they offer the best support and breathability, whilst naturally regulating temperature. Our mattresses are finished with 100% cotton ticking for a soft touch exterior.


A pocket sprung caravan mattress will naturally adapt and fit the contours of your body. Together with soft natural fillings, you can ensure your mattress will provide a deep luxurious feel and optimum support. After an exhilarating day hiking in the countryside or boating on a lake, you’ll be grateful for the support that your new caravan mattress will offer.

Additional Features

At The Odd Mattress Company, we can accommodate a range of requests, as well as additional features that will help your new mattress be a perfect fit.

  • Shallow mattresses are especially good for tight spaces with less head room, and they don’t have to compromise on comfort
  • Cut out corners provide optimum functionality in small caravan spaces where berths may not be rectangular and therefore require an unusually shaped mattress
  • Side stitching creates a firmer mattress edging
  • Zip and link functionality is perfect for sleepers that have different mattress requirements but sleep in the same bed, or for getting a double mattress through doorways/corridors that normally wouldn’t accommodate one

Relax in your home away from home

A fully sprung mattress with cotton or lambs’ wool fillings will be a luxurious and comfortable addition to your motorhome, caravan or camper.

Whether it’s a short or longer stay, holidays are for relaxing. Invest in a good night’s sleep by providing yourself with a quality, custom made, caravan mattress.
