Sleep is very important to us, as we’re sure it is to you! Whether you need a new mattress for home, trailers, caravans, campervans or anything else, we’d be happy to hear from you.

Each foam mattress is cut bespoke to order, made to measure to your sizes or template. We would ask for a template to be supplied if your mattress is an unusual shape, such as curved or with a cut-out – as is often the case with caravans and similar!

You have a lot of choice when it comes to mattresses so read on to find out more, give us a call to discuss your requirements, or visit us at one of our showrooms.

Where will your mattress be used?

We can and have provided mattresses for use in a large variety of locations, including mattresses for caravans, van conversions, campervans, trailer units, horsebox upholstery, specialist units, boats, and homes. Ranging from small mattresses for children and pets to full Queen size mattresses and more! We can make them to fit into small nooks or to splay out on for maximum comfort.


The minimum requirements for the foam for your mattress will vary depending on the usage of the mattress. If your made to measure mattress is being used every night you will need one designed to last longer than one that is perhaps used once a month. We have on offer a variety of foam grades at different price points to suit your needs.

Foam Grades

It really is your personal preference when it comes to choosing your comfort level for your foam mattress. We will recommend how thick the foam should be as minimum depending on its usage, however we can make this from a firm, supportive foam, or a more sinkable option or something in the middle! You can even mix and match with a firm supportive base a softer top for the best of both worlds, or a luxurious memory foam for your made to measure mattress.

Find out more about the foam grades available on our Foam page.

Soft Foam Toppers

Your options for soft (or firm!) foam toppers are extensive, and we can layer your foam choices in store for you to experience how your foam mattress would feel. For example, you could double side your soft foam with a firm foam in the middle for a turn able, comfortable mattress. The foams are bonded together and will feel just like one mattress.

If you simply need a foam topper for an existing mattress, this is something we can help with. A popular option is a memory foam mattress topper, which moulds to your body heat, providing a luxuriously soft topper to your mattress. There are other foams available as toppers, from super soft to firm, just in case you need a little extra support from your mattress.

Mattress Size

As each mattress is bespoke and made to order, the size of the mattress is completely up to you. If it needs to fit into an unusual sized space, we can advise how it would best fit, or if it needs to be made up of parts for easy assembly, such as for a boat or motorhome, we are happy to offer advice.

Mattress Covers

It often depends on how you intend to use your mattress as to whether we would recommend a mattress cover. In our 18 years of experience, we have found that mattresses for campervans and similar are often best wrapped in stockinette with a hard-wearing top cloth for a dual-use seating/mattress area. However, a mattress for a bed at home or perhaps a caravan would be suited to a calico cover, complete with zip if required, to protect the foam.

However you get a quotation, we would always recommend trying out the foam grades where possible to find a comfort level to suit you.
