There are several ingenious tricks you can do to make the most of the space in your RV.

An RV bed lift is one of our favorite hacks because it either enables you to utilize the space beneath your bed for more storage or lifts your whole bed out of the way so you can use the space in other ways.

You’ve come to the correct site if you don’t know much about RV bed lifts or if you do and want to learn more about them.

Everything you need to know about RV bed lift systems will be covered in today’s discussion.

The 2 Different RV Bed Lift System Types

There are two primary bed lift system kinds that you may employ in your RV, as we briefly explained.

The first one makes use of a mechanism that fastens to your bed frame and lifts the mattress out of the way to expose storage space below.

This is ideal for those who don’t mind the bed being in that position permanently but need a bigger, additional place to keep clothes, toys, recreational gear, etc.

The second RV bed lift system is very amazing since it literally raises your whole bed off the ground and suspends it closer to the top of your RV using a motorized or pulley system.

Despite the fact that sleeping in such a position would probably be a lot of fun (unless you’re frightened of heights), the purpose of this device is to simply slide the bed out of the way when it’s not in use so you can reach the area below in your RV.

When it’s time for bed, many RV owners often drop their mattress onto their dinette.

Tips for Using Your RV Lift Bed Safely

Slide out beds with permanent base platforms cannot be placed with Bedlift Kits.

The gas springs from a bedlift system cannot be manually compressed after installation, nor will they retract after installation if the mattress and bedding are not present.

It is recommended to keep dogs and kids away from these springs since they are under a lot of strain, especially if they have a tendency to attempt to climb on them.

It’s recommended that you have at least one more assistant on available if you want to install your RV bed lift yourself, particularly because you may need to raise a mattress or heavy bedding.

You now have all the information you want to make an informed decision about buying an RV bed lift.

You’ll like the extra RV storage it offers, we’re sure of it!
