Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz wasn’t the only one who knew that “there’s no place like home.” Traveling without the familiar comforts of your own bed can make it harder to get good sleep. This is especially true when you’ve perfected a latex mattress topper setup for your bed at home.
Whether you live with chronic pain or simply sleep better with the extra comfort and support of a latex mattress topper, there are times when you can bring your topper along when you travel. You can also bring a mattress topper camping, whether in a tent or an RV.
Can Your Mattress Topper Travel to a Hotel?
The short answer is “probably,” depending on the size of your topper and your ability to bring it along. Obviously, even a twin-sized mattress topper won’t fit in the upper baggage compartment on an airplane. However, it’s easy enough to roll up a mattress topper to travel to a hotel in your car, especially if you use some adjustable straps to secure it. Straps make a topper easier to carry, too.
Because latex toppers are durable and hold their shape well, you can also buy a spare mattress topper just for travel.
Latex Mattress Toppers Are a Comfort-Boosting Addition to RV Beds
Many recreational vehicle owners know that the standard mattresses that come with an RV aren’t always the most comfortable. Fortunately, a simple DIY solution exists, because latex mattress toppers can be cut to fit an RV bed. Check out our guide to fitting a latex topper in an RV.
Not all RV beds are the same size as regular beds. If you’re renting an RV, find out the measurements of the mattresses to make sure they’re close enough to standard size to accommodate a topper.
Yes, You Can Bring Your Mattress Topper Camping
As mentioned above, if space is an issue in your vehicle or tent, bringing a latex mattress topper may not be ideal. But if your vehicle has room to spare and you’re more of a mega-tent glamper than an ultralight backpacker, you can take your fave mattress topper camping, just as you would an inflatable mattress. Using compression straps, you can roll up your topper to save space and tote it from car to tent and sleep under the stars in comfort.
