According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), one in 10 Americans suffers from sleep disorder, and 25 percent of the total population reportedly experience trouble sleeping. This survey has been conducted largely on people who sleep in traditional homes. Getting a good night's sleep becomes even more difficult for people vacationing in RVs. With a low insulation structure and walls that are much thinner than your home, an RV can hardly prevent campground sounds from entering your bedroom. If you are among those RV buyers, thrilled by the prospect of an upcoming road trip, yet intimidated by the possibility of spending sleepless nights in your vehicle, here are a few tips to help you get a better sleep in your RV:
Invest In A Few Sleep-inducing Accessories
Generally, RV parks encourage their guests to maintain quiet. Despite their strict rules and regulations, you cannot eliminate certain noises such as dog barking, baby crying or a diesel pusher entering the campground in the middle of the night.
A pair of good quality earplugs will help you ignore all those unwanted sounds and remain asleep. For that matter, installing a mini fan inside your rig will provide a constant supply of white noise. This is sure to make a world of difference when a barbeque is going on just across your parking lane.
Finding a suitable parking spot is not always in your hand. Don’t be surprised if the only available parking spot is right under the neon sign. A sleep mask can be your trusted friend in this situation.
Aromatherapy works wonders for those suffering from insomnia or other sleeping disorder. There are different types of sleep-inducing essential oils such as lavender, vetiver and Roman chamomile Researchers have proven their sleep-inducing abilities. Carry a bottle of lavender to your motor home trip and spray it in your bedroom just before you hit the pillow. Alternatively, you can also dab a little essential oil on a tissue, and place it under the pillow for a restful sleep.
Set the Interior Temperature Right
Too cold or too warm can both affect sleep. Set the interior temperature at a moderate 65 degree Fahrenheit, which according to the sleep experts is just the ideal temperature to induce anyone into deep slumber.. However, every individual has his or her own unique preference. Find out yours and set it right at that point. Take a middle path if you and your partner have different temperature preferences.
Get a New Mattress
If you have bought a secondhand rig, examine the mattress carefully to find out whether it is fit for use. If you feel pain or stiffness upon waking up in the morning, you know the mattress may not be right for you. In case you don’t want an immediate change, use a good mattress topper. This is one of the most important aspects to be considered by all RV travelers. A good mattress is a prerequisite to a good night’s sleep. In order to ascertain what product works best for you, try them out in the store, by lying on your back as well as turning on each side. Do not go for the less expensive varieties; rather buy one that gives you maximum support.
Getting sound sleep is as important while you are vacationing as it is when you are at home. In order to avoid sleepless nights, RV buyers should always invest in the right sleep-friendly accessories. Most of them wouldn’t cost you much, and even if they do, it will be worth the investment. We are sure our tips will come handy in selecting the right ones.
