An Introduction to the Turmerry Natural and Organic RV Mattress
Compact, cushioning, supportive, cooling, and durable – the Turmerry Natural and Organic RV Mattress goes by many
titles. The core material featured in our RV mattresses is organic latex, which is sustainably sourced
from rubber trees in Sri Lanka. We process liquid latex into foam through the Dunlop method, which
gives it a firmer feel and makes it more durable than Talalay latex.
To assemble the Turmerry RV mattress, three Dunlop latex foam layers of varying firmness levels are placed on top
of each other. They are then infused with a temperature-regulating, fire-resisting natural New Zealand wool
layer, after which they are encased in a breathable organic cotton cover.
The blend of high-quality natural and organic materials in our RV mattress makes it not only a comfortable choice
but also an environmentally conscious one. The organic latex offers exceptional support and cushioning while
allowing for unrestricted airflow, preventing overheating. Latex’s resilience ensures the mattress's longevity,
promising many nights of restful slumber.
Moreover, the natural New Zealand wool layer serves a dual purpose. Firstly, it regulates temperature, keeping
you cool during warm nights and cozy during chilly nights. Secondly, it acts as a natural fire barrier,
eliminating the need for harmful chemical flame retardants!
Why Should You Consider Turmerry RV Short King Mattresses?
Take a peek at all the wonderful benefits offered by our RV mattress -
Dynamic, Responsive, and Bouncy
As latex is a highly responsive and bouncy material, it allows you to move freely on the mattress. Whether
a restless sleeper or a combination sleeper, you won't feel bogged down and stuck as you usually do on
mattresses like memory foam. And the best part is - wherever you move on the mattress surface, you'll be
provided with consistent comfort and support.

cushioning, contouring, and pressure relief.

The latex foam layers we use are perforated, i.e., carefully pierced with holes, to ensure the maximum amount
airflow through them. Latex, as a material, also possesses an internal open-cell structure, which helps
dissipate heat much better, making it ideal for a hot sleeper. To boost the cooling you get, we've also

High Resilience and Durability
Natural latex is a highly resilient material that can withstand 15-20 years of use without encountering

longer than its counterpart - the Talalay latex. The other materials we use, such as natural wool and
cotton, are also of superior quality.

children, etc., then an RV short king mattress can definitely be a beneficial, and sometimes necessary,
Determine whether your body type is compatible with an RV short king - Taller
individuals, especially those above 6 feet, should look for a mattress that offers sufficient length (80
inches or more) to ensure their feet aren't hanging off the edge. An RV short king, however, only offers
75 inches of length, so it's usually not an ideal sleep space solution for such tall individuals.

RV Short King: Personal factors to consider
If you've decided to go for an RV short king after having evaluated the factors above, then you'll need to choose
from various mattress types, like a latex, hybrid, innerspring, or memory foam mattress. Before we delve into
that, take a look at these important personal factors to consider:

Any existing health conditions, such as back pain, joint pain, allergies,
chemical sensitivities, etc., should guide your choice. For back pain/joint pain sufferers, a latex or
foam mattress can offer pressure relief and support. Allergy-prone
individuals may prioritize hypoallergenic materials to prevent allergen buildup. And
chemically-sensitive individuals should try to avoid options like a memory foam mattress and opt for organic
mattress materials like latex, wool, and cotton.
Frequent travelers will want a mattress that can withstand the wear and tear of continuous movement. Look for
mattresses from reputable mattress companies that use durable materials, such as latex, to ensure lasting
comfort across multiple trips.

The different types of RV short king mattresses
Each type of RV short king mattress has its own advantages. Imbue your next adventure with the contouring embrace
of a memory foam mattress, the natural responsiveness of a latex mattress, the balance of a hybrid mattress, or
the classic feel of an innerspring mattress.
Traditional Memory Foam Mattress
The traditional memory foam mattress type is renowned for its body-contouring abilities. The
core material used in a traditional memory foam mattress, which is memory foam, can absorb body heat and
pressure to conform to the body's shape. In this manner, a memory foam mattress offers personalized comfort,
cushioning, and pressure relief.
The traditional memory foam mattress, however, does have plenty of drawbacks, the most prominent of which are
heat retention, VOC off-gassing, and minimal response. Hot sleepers will find the traditional memory foam
mattress unsuitable for their needs. Moreover, the chemical VOCs being released can be harmful if inhaled.
since a memory foam mattress is highly conforming, it sinks you into it, offering minimal bounce and
To counter the issues of a traditional memory foam mattress, other premium memory foam mattress types were
introduced. The most effective of these premium memory foam mattress types is the gel-infused memory foam
Suggested Read - Memory Foam Mattress - Pros
Gel-Infused Memory Foam Mattress
The gel memory foam mattress type features a layer of memory foam that is infused with the goodness
cooling gel pods. This gel infusion works to improve the memory foam comfort and cooling
as it helps dissipate heat much better while also making the memory foam mattress bouncier and more
A gel memory foam mattress will, however, cost you more than a traditional memory foam mattress. It is also
free from the VOC off-gassing issues mentioned in a traditional memory foam mattress. So, keep your budget
health condition in mind when pursuing a gel memory foam mattress type.
The latex mattress is a direct counter to the chemical-filled gel memory foam and traditional memory foam
mattress types. Latex is, at its core, liquid rubber, which is obtained in a sustainable manner from rubber
trees. Latex is then manufactured into foam through either the Dunlop method, which makes it firmer, or the
Talalay method, which makes it softer.
Latex mattresses are renowned for their bouncy, responsive surface, which doesn't sink you
it like a memory foam mattress does. Furthermore, besides being organic and eco-friendly, latex mattresses
great support, pressure relief, breathability (cooling), motion isolation, durability, edge support, and
noiselessness. In other words, they offer all the benefits and more of a gel memory foam and traditional
foam mattress, but without the drawbacks.
The hybrid mattress is a combination of an all-foam mattress and a spring-type mattress,
embodying the best of both worlds. A hybrid mattress often boasts higher quality materials like pocketed
or offset coils for the support core and latex, memory foam, or gel memory foam for the comfort layer. The
combination of high-quality materials and thicker comfort layers is what makes a hybrid mattress unique and
expensive than an innerspring mattress.
The innerspring mattress is one of the oldest mattress types. It uses spring coils for its support core and
surrounds it with thin layers of foam/padding for comfort. Traditional innerspring mattresses used to have
Bonnell coils or continuous coils for support, which provided a traditionally firm feel. Modern innersprings
slowly shifting to pocketed coils and offset coils as they provide additional comfort. Innersprings are a
great mattress choice for those seeking a traditionally firm, bouncy, budget-friendly
What is the best RV short king mattress type?
Gathering from our years of experience in the mattress world, our recommendation for the best RV short king
mattress type would be either an all-foam latex mattress or a latex hybrid
The all-foam latex mattress is a more plush, cushioning option and is ideally suited for those seeking higher
levels of comfort.
The latex hybrid mattress, on the other hand, provides a more balanced feel between cushioning and support and
is, therefore, ideally suited for sleepers who prefer a medium-firm sleep surface.
But why latex, you ask? Latex emerges as a remarkable choice, encompassing all the benefits of traditional memory
foam and gel memory foam mattresses while gracefully sidestepping their drawbacks, such as harmful levels of VOC
off-gassing, heat retention, and less response.
Latex is also a sustainable, eco-friendly material that can endure 15-20 years of use, all the while providing
you with a healthy sleep
environment and Mother Earth with a harmonious carbon footprint.
RV Short King: Mattress qualities to consider
The key mattress qualities to consider when choosing an RV short king mattress include:
Thickness and Firmness - A mattress can be customized primarily through its thickness
and firmness. The usual thickness choices you'll find include 8, 10, and 12 inches. And the average
firmness options you'll find include soft, medium firm, firm, and extra firm. Increasing the mattress
thickness leads to extra cushioning, while increasing the firmness leads to extra support.
Durability - An RV mattress faces unique challenges due to travel vibrations and
temperature fluctuations. Opt for a mattress with durable materials and quality construction to ensure
it withstands the rigors of life on the road.
Temperature Regulation - Consider the climate you'll be in. RV mattresses with cooling
materials like gel memory foam, latex, and/or wool can help regulate temperature, providing a
comfortable sleep environment.
Motion Isolation - Sharing an RV means considering your partner's movements. A mattress
with good motion isolation prevents one person's movement from disturbing the other.
Edge Support - A mattress with strong edge support maximizes usable space. You can sit
or sleep near the edges without feeling like you'll roll off.
Noise Level - Some mattresses can produce noise when you move. Opt for a mattress with
minimal noise to prevent disturbances during the night.
Ease of Cleaning - Travel can bring spills and dirt. Look for mattresses with removable,
washable covers or easy-to-clean materials that make maintenance a breeze.
Trial Period and Warranty - Sleep trials and warranties offer peace of mind. Choose a
mattress that provides a long trial period, allowing you to experience its comfort in your RV setting.
Also, ensure that it's backed by a reasonable warranty.
