The best nights sleep ... in my RV

So how about you ... I always get the best nights sleep when staying in our RV. It doesn't matter if we're staying in a campground, a parking lot or in our driveway. We don't have the best mattress in our RV - the standard mattress with a memory foam topper, but I always sleep like a baby when sleeping in the RV - and I love it when it rains and hear the rain bouncing off the roof.

So, you wake up at 3am in a wet bed screaming for a bottle?


Just kidding, of course! I know exactly what you mean. DW and I both sleep better in the RV than we do at home. Maybe it's because we don't have to think about all the "stuff" that goes along with keeping a house. You know, mowing the lawn, cleaning the gutters, sweeping the floors, dusting, painting the deck, cleaning the hot tub, etc. etc. etc.

Agree also.

I work nights and last night was my "Saturday" night. Yesterday, a few hours after I was off from work, I was in my RV in my apartment building's parking lot looking over maps and campground directories for future trips.

I started feeling drowsy around noon and decided to just lie down in the RV bed for a bit. I ended up sleeping several hours.

Could be the change of atmosphere, change of mattress, or psychological change of pace, but I know what you mean. We fulltime, so sleeping in the MH is our normal-- no immediate alternative to consider.

But I'll tell you this: In my experience, nothing-- NOTHING-- can compare to sleeping on a boat!

Same here. My head is clear, no worries from work and just relaxed. Best nights sleep are in the coach when on vacation, whether for a week or just the weekend.

I do in the Winnie but I never slept well in the fiver, the mattress was new but not comfy. This one is a sleep number, and until the pump failed it was great. New pump is on the way!!

I've said it for years now, "unless it is a life-or-death" thing, if we cannot get there by our Coach, I'm not leaving the house. I will not buy an Airline Ticket, except in case of a Family emergency or similar.
Our coach came with a rock hard mattress and we installed a Costco 4in memory foam topper. Man, what a difference. All of our visitors love that mattress.
I remember as a Kid, sleeping under a "tin roof" in Mississippi during heavy rains. What a sound! Overnight in the coach is a lot like that.
So sad, they are all gone now, replaced with modern homes.

Hands down it's the RV. Stock cheap mattress also with a gel memory foam topper and you can't beat it.

Years ago (Rather a bunch of them) I bought an old Apache Pop Up, We joined a membership campground and after that we pulled in, Set up and did not have to take any money out of ye-old Wallet.. That was the best night's sleep I had in many years.... Since then I have gone to a Solid TT, and finally a class A.. And I still sleep rather well.. Dumped the house and the only thing that distrubs my sleep now is old age and the need to visit a different part of the Motor Home.

We do too, get a good mattress and you will be in heaven. We have the sleep number and I do believe I will look into one of these for the house.
