Having your home on wheels is the best way to experience the United States and all of its treasures. Whether you’re in a van or RV it’ll make your life much easier when you don’t have to worry about leaving these cool destinations when it’s time for bed. Hotels are great, and so is camping, but rock-hard beds and the rock-hard ground aren’t great on your back. And without a decent RV mattress, you’ll have the same issues.
Since you travel with your bedroom, you don’t have to gamble on a suitable place to sleep—have a custom RV mattress made so you can stay comfy on the road! Having a custom mattress made for your van bed or RV bed might be the most important thing to check off on your prep list before you head out to your next adventures.
The United States has so much to offer, it’s hard to pick just 5 places you must-see because there are so many! So once you’re all prepped for your next RV or van trip, consider these amazing sites to see:
Rocky Mountain National Park
You can drive into the park very early in the morning to get a good spot and then make your breakfast and get ready. The Alpine Visitors Center is located at an elevation of 11,000 feet, and there is a hiking path up another 1,000 feet that offers the most breathtaking 360-degree views of the park. Plus, If you’re there during the elk mating season (end of September), you can see them everywhere and hear them bugling, which is the coolest!
Lake Lanier in Northern Georgia
One of America’s favorite lakes, 700 miles of shoreline and clear blue water provides for lots of swimming, camping, fishing, hiking, kayaking and boating. There are over 45 parks and 10 campgrounds around the lake, and many have RV hookups with picnic tables and BBQ pits. Visitors can also take a day trip to the North Georgia Mountains for a hike on the Appalachian Trail, or to enjoy a waterfall, or one of the North Georgia Mountain wineries.
Hocking Hills State Park in Southeastern Ohio
A true hidden gem loaded with beautiful hiking trails, gorgeous waterfalls, caves to explore and overall scenery. The Hocking Hills is the canopy tour capital of the Midwest. There are more than 60 ziplines that provide a bird's-eye view of breathtaking landscape as you fly from treetop to treetop. The Hocking Hills Campground has been voted #1 campground in the US by trailblazer.com, and offers full hookups for your RV or primitive camping spots.
The Superstition Mountains in Arizona
The largest mountain range surrounding Phoenix and visible for miles, there are thousands of BLM acreage at the base and around the mountain range, which is free camping for your van or RV. The mountain range high point is 5,024 feet, the mountains characterized by sheer-sided, jagged, volcanic peaks and ridges separated by boulder-filled canyons, are covered by saguaro at low elevations, with other cacti and bushes higher up. The sunsets are stunning, and at night you can use a black light to search for scorpions. It is mainly boon-docking out there, so be sure your water tanks are filled, and you have everything you need to camp primitively (including that comfy custom RV mattress of yours!).
Fort Desoto Park in Saint Petersburg, Florida
This park covers 5 islands and 1,136 acres on the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay. You can rent a canoe, kayak or bike to explore the park’s trails, fish from a pier, visit the historic fort, or simply lounge on the beach and enjoy the crystal-clear turquoise waters. There is a campground on the water with restrooms, a laundry facility, showers, a playground, store, dump station and hookups. It’s a real beach oasis for camping.
The Adventure of Cross-Country RV Life on the Road
Traveling in a van or RV gives you the freedom to go wherever whenever with the conveniences of having your tiny home with you! With every place you go, you are able to enjoy it in a different way than just visiting for the day. You can almost “live” there, which gives you the ability to really soak it all in and enjoy the beauty around you.
But one thing that’s important for truly enjoying life on the road is the beds in your RV. Standard RV mattresses typically don’t provide the comfort you need for truly healthy sleep. And you can’t be exhausted on those long drives, or too tired to miss those mountain hikes! Replace your RV’s main bed with a custom short queen mattress with radius corners. Try a hinged mattress for your RV’s dinette conversion, and a custom sofa bed mattress for your RV’s couch.
We can also make bespoke beds for RV bunks and lofts; and no matter how weird the shape or dimensions of your custom RV mattresses, we can create made to measure custom bedding that will fit them perfectly. Think about switching out those sad RV mattresses for ergonomic, cooling memory foam beds, and let us know if you've visited any of our top 5 spots and how your experience was!
