Foam for Campervans and Motorhomes
Foam is already widely acknowledged as being a fundamental material in campervans, caravans and motorhomes. From seats and mattresses, to insulation and padding, there are many different types that are incorporated into various parts of a vehicle - some better known than others. The value of foam for these vehicles is more important than ever, particularly as the UK Caravan Industry Report recently found that British people spend approximately 50 million nights inside their mobile homes each year.
For seating, medium-high density polyurethane is commonly used as it provides the most comfort in relation to durability - a quality that is particularly important when a caravan or motorhome is used on a more permanent basis. It is a fail-safe and low maintenance option that achieves the best outcome. At eFoam, we specialise in providing foam cut to size which is a service much appreciated by a large number of our customers. Campervans, caravans and motorhomes come with chairs and seating in a range of shapes, sizes and depths – all of which we can accommodate.
There are also a range of foams suitable for mattresses and at eFoam, we supply several different thicknesses in either solid or composite form. For beds that are used on a daily basis, you may wish to consider a memory foam mattress like our Deep Sleeper Comfort which is a little more compact in height yet still offers unparalleled postural support. This support is particularly important if you spend a considerable amount of time driving about in your motor home!
For occasional use - such as when you have guests - thinner foam can be used which is softer to the touch. We recommend High Firm foam, which when thin enough can be folded away without compromising on quality. More importantly, it is both comfortable yet able to spring back into its original shape even after being folded/compacted away for a short while. As we provide foam cut to size, we can advise you on perfectly fitting foams that can be folded underneath your sofa within the storage compartment.
Anyone who has stayed in a caravan or campervan in winter weather knows that they can be cold if not properly insulated. To avoid the chill, foam is an excellent form of insulation. We personally recommend Zotefoam Plastazote® superior closed cell foam for generic wall and floor insulation as it is a very good thermal insulator.
Should you have any queries on how foam is best used in your motor home, please contact us. We are also experts on advising the replacement of foam for various motor home components, should this be required.
