2 PART ISLAND CARAVAN MATTRESSES
This type of mattress is used on a pull-out bed and is designed for space saving purposes. Also known as an island caravan mattresss with bolster, the smaller part at the head-end is put on top of the main piece, allowing the bed to be pushed back slightly. During the day, this provides more space when needing to access the bathroom at the back of the vehicle.
Before using the mattress, you simply slide the bed base back out into position and drop the bolster piece into place, resulting in a unified sleep surface.
Sometimes the caravan manufacturer will include a hinge between the island mattress and the bolster piece, sometimes with the option to 'unzip' one part from the other. The rising trend however, is for these pieces to be completely separate, as it's a much more practical solution. See our caravan mattress guide for more information.
All of our Island Shape Caravan Mattresses feature Duralite Technology. This special type of foam is lightweight (and yet robust and supportive), meaning the mattresses are up to 40% lighter than the equivalent traditional sprung mattress. This helps you to keep your overall towage weight down, which is great for fuel economy.
Duralite is also put to great use within our Premium Pocket Sprung Island Mattresses. By encapsulating the metal pocket springs within a Duralight border, this allows the mattresses to have far greater flexibility, meaning they can be bent without the fear that this will damage them, unlike with traditional pocket sprung mattresses. The reinforced edges also means that the mattresses can keep their shape for far longer. There is no metal 'rod edge' wire, so there is nothing to be bent out of shape over time.
