Travel trailers must use every inch of space as efficiently as possible. In this pursuit of efficiency, you might have to make sacrifices. One place you don’t have to sacrifice, though, is a king bed. We’ve found more than a few travel trailers with king beds that we want to share with you.
King Beds In RVs and Travel Trailers
King beds are big. This means they take up some valuable real estate in RVs! However, having the extra space and comfort in your home away from home for that perfect night’s sleep is often well worth the sacrifice.
With advances in trucks being able to tow more weight and RVs being built with lighter-weight materials, RVs of all shapes and types can now include king beds – even the travel trailer!
Travel trailers, in particular, have some serious weight considerations due to how they are towed. They are also some of the most economical RVs out there and not historically thought of as being luxurious. Today, we’re looking at the travel trailers with king beds specifically for this reason!

How Big Is A King Bed Mattress In An RV?
A standard king bed mattress measures 76 inches by 80 inches. By comparison, a standard queen mattress has dimensions of 60 inches by 80 inches.
More and more we see RVs coming with “king beds.” However, as you look at floorplans and brochures for RVs with king beds, you’ll notice that some of the measurements fall short of the standard king bed measurements.
Instead of the full 76 inches by 80 inches, you’ll frequently see the “RV king bed” measuring in at just 70 or 72 inches wide. They may even be shorter than 80 inches long!
This is not new in the RV space – for a long time “RV mattresses” have been their completely own category of mattress sizes.
With just 4-6 inches difference, you might get a real standard king mattress on the bed with just 2-3 inches of overhang on either side.
Regardless, you still get 10-12 more inches of mattress width in your RV king bed. Just be sure to check the exact measurements of your king bed before you buy.
