For more than 12 years we have tried at least 3 different RV mattress setups with only incremental success up until we tried the RV Supreme Euro Top Denver Mattress.In January 2014 we travelled to Florida for the Tampa SuperShow where we saw posters about the Denver Mattress RV Collection. The advertisements claimed these mattress set a new benchmark in sleeping comfort, were fitted as standard equipment on several coaches and are the best RV mattresses available.
Our old RV mattress had been described as having pocketed coils, high-density soy foam and double quilting. We also added a 3-inch high-density foam topper and thought we’d found the solution we needed.
The total thickness of the mattress including the topper was more than 11 inches, but I failed to take into consideration the total weight. The topper itself added approximately 30 pounds. We found that the bed was noticeably heavy to move from one side of the bed platform to the other while tucking sheets and we had to use a broom stick to hold up the bed when accessing stored items. Although we improved our mattress from a previous replacement, I was still experiencing aches and pains in the morning.
After nearly 2 months of living on the road, we returned home and were happy to sleep comfortably in our regular bed. Lying there, the wheels began turning again. Denver Mattress kept popping up in my mind
and we decided to see if we could get a better sleeping experience in the RV. In recent press, RV Business wrote, “Denver Mattress Hospitality has partnered exclusively with Lippert Components Inc. to distribute premium mattresses to the RV industry through Denver Mattress Hospitality’s RV Division.” In another article RVB wrote; “Based in Denver, Colo., Denver Mattress was recently recognized in a leading
consumer magazine as a top-rated U.S. mattress manufacturer and retailer— ranking higher than RV mattress suppliers such as Sealy, Serta, Simmons and Stearns and Foster.”
I began to think there had to be something about Denver Mattress worth looking into, and thus the fates aligned themselves. While processing vendor applications for our September 2014 iRV2 National
Rally, I was pleased to see Lippert Components wanted to attend. We offered the Lippert Components team a space and they provided commemorative rally goody bags!
Lippert Components also gave us a 60” x 80” RV Supreme Euro Top queen Denver Mattress and all new bedding from the Denver Mattress RV Collection including a quilted mattress pad, a set of microfiber sheets,pillowcases and pillows. The Denver mattress shipped rolled and compressed in a 5-foot tall box. After the bed platform was made ready, we placed the compressed, plastic-wrapped roll on the platform and ripped off the security wrapper. Within a second or two the Denver Mattress was completely unrolled and lying flat on the platform. When I re-positioned the mattress, I immediately noticed how much lighter it was compared to our old coil mattress. As it sits on the platform, the Denver is 11 inches tall and does not need a foam topper as it has a built-in pillow top. It looked comfortable and we were anxious to try it out.
Over the top of mattress we fitted the Denver Mattress RV Collection quilted mattress pad. The pad acts as a cover and barrier between the sheet and mattress, which we feel is essential for longevity. The
microfiber sheet set is sized exactly for the 11-inch deep mattress and fit like a glove. Next we fitted the flat sheet and — as always — I was reminded by my dear wife exactly where the hem is supposed to go. Next we added a lightweight comforter and made up the pillows. The Denver Mattress RV Collection offers different density pillows, so we ordered a hard pillow and a soft pillow. I prefer a firm pillow. The bed was made and we were ready to go!
We arrived at the campground and setup camp at the rally. Later in the evening after an exhausting first day, we retired. Initially skeptical while lying on the RV Supreme Euro Top Denver Mattress, I was wrestling with the feedback that my body was giving me. After being disappointed with other mattresses, I was trying to convince myself that the “too comfortable” feeling I was experiencing would become my new norm. I quickly relaxed and found over time that the mattress supported me, but not to the point where it grabbed me like our previous mattresses and foam topper. I hate that sinking feeling, and the Denver Mattress didn’t do that. I felt like I was being snuggled. It took no time at all for me to fall asleep.
Come morning, I cautiously got up out of bed, stood straight up and smiled. No body aches! It was great! We both found that sleeping on microfiber sheets added immeasurably to our overall experience as well.
After sleeping on the Denver every day for just about a month, I believe that this mattress is a keeper and we are very glad to have it.

Mike and Colleen Pelchat have been RVers since the late 1980s. As a young family, their camping adventure began in tents. In hardly no time at all, weekend camping trips evolved as they upgraded to folding campers, a travel trailer, a fifth-wheel and ultimately Class A motorhomes. They’ve made many upgrades to their current RV to improve both comfort and safety. Mike and Colleen travel primarily in the south eastern states and love to camp long weekends or winter over in the Sunshine State. Mike writes photo essays on various RV topics on iRV2.com.
