Memory Foam Mattress Pad

August 10, 20131

The foam mattresses in popup campers are surprisingly comfortable, at least compared to the ground of a tent. However, we needed just a few extra inches of comfort and decided to install a memory foam mattress pad topper.

Nothing overboard, just a 2″ ventilated piece placed on the king mattress for me and my wife. So far the kids don’t complain about theirs, so we’ve left it stock.

This did create a bit of a tight squeeze when popping the camper down, so I relocated the door storage plate ever so slightly for a perfect fit.

I've been camping regularly since I was a kid, from quick Cub/Boy Scout trips to week-long backpacking trips and everything else in-between. We got a popup camper when our kids were 1 and 3 years old to enjoy more time outdoors together alongside a few conveniences like heat and running water. Since then, we've spent over 75 nights together as a family in our popup camper. I've learned a lot about the intricacies of a popup tent camper during this time and love to share those lessons here for the benefit of others.
