Memory Foam Makes Sense for RV Mattresses and Cushions

September 30, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

Memory-Foam-Makes-Sense-for-RV-Mattresses-and-CushionsRV owners spend a lot of time inside of their vehicles. Their RV cabin is their living room, kitchen and bedroom whenever they go on the road. Because of this, they need RV bedding that is comfortable and lets them get a good night’s sleep, while also being durable enough to last for years. Many RV owners have found that memory foam is the perfect choice when it comes to their motorhome’s mattress.

The main reason that people select memory foam for their RV mattresses is comfort. Despite being lightweight, memory foam offers superior comfort for a very affordable price. It’s almost impossible to sleep poorly when using a memory foam mattress, as it is soft while also providing the right amount of support to pressure points so you won’t ache when you wake up.

Camper owners use memory foam for more than just their mattresses. Memory foam also makes a great material for RV cushions. One reason this is the case is that it is easy to cut memory foam to the shape you need. Since many camper cushions and beds are smaller than normal or have unusual sizes, memory foam makes sense. All you need is an electric knife and you can get a mattress or cushion that is the perfect fit.

RV owners can choose to purchase an entire foam mattress or they may want to have a foam mattresses topper to go above their standard mattress. This allows you to add an additional level of comfort to your sleeping arrangement while keeping your current mattress.

The Foam Factory, Inc. is a family owned business that has been providing high end foam products to customers for more than 30 years. The company takes orders from individuals to large corporations.

The Conference House of Staten Island

Located on the southernmost tip of Staten Island is the Conference House, which was built in 1680. It’s the last standing home from that era, built in the Dutch Colonial style, and it’s become a registered landmark in the National Register of Historic Places.

The Conference House was built on Lenape land, which is widely believed to have been a burial ground. It was commissioned by Captain Christopher Billopp, who earned a 932 parcel of land for his service in the English Royal Navy.

Billopp, the legend goes, played a central role in binding Staten Island to New York. At the time, there was some debate as to which region could lay claim to Staten Island, so a bet was proposed. If Christopher Billop could circumnavigate Staten Island in a single day, then the area would belong to New York. As history shows, Billop was successful in this task.

The date that Billopp’s mansion was constructed isn’t easy to verify, as there seems to be record of an existing home already at that location. What we do know is that the house was passed down to his grandson, who led loyalists during the American Revolution. This was an important point in time for the home, as Lord Howe of the British side wanted to try and broker a deal to end the war.

He invited Benjamin Franklin, John Adams and Edward Rutledge for a three hour meeting. In the end, the American’s politely declined Howe’s offer of peace. A move that would lock the two powers in war for another seven years.
