Unboxing the Douglas Summit RV
Douglas understands that the unboxing experience is an important part of the customer journey, so they make sure it is smooth and hassle-free.
The Douglas Summit RV mattress is delivered rolled and compressed in a box. To set it up, you simply need to unbox it and place it on your bed. The mattress weighs between 38 and 72 pounds, so you probably won’t need help lifting it. But just in case, the mattress has handles on the sides to make it easier to lift.
Once we have the mattress out of the box and placed on our bed, we carefully cut the plastic wrap. It takes about a minute for the mattress to expand to its full height of 12 inches. The Douglas Summit RV mattress has excellent corner expansion, which means that the corners of the mattress expand all the way to the very ends. This provides excellent support throughout the entire surface area of the bed and makes the mattress look sleek.
Unlike most bed-in-a-box mattresses that release a potent chemical “off-gassing” odor, the Douglas Summit RV mattress produced only a slight, non-irritating odor that dissipated within a few hours. This was a pleasant surprise, as the odor from other mattresses can be quite strong and unpleasant. The lack of odor added to the extremely pleasant unboxing experience.
Firmness, Feel, and Comfort For Douglas Summit RV
Douglas Summit RV Firmness
The firmness of a mattress is an important consideration, depending on your sleeping preferences. A mattress that is too firm can be uncomfortable, while a mattress that is too soft may not provide enough support. The Douglas Summit RV mattress has a medium-firm feel, which is perfect for most people. It is not too soft, not too firm, but just right.
The mattress has a 6.5/10 firmness rating on our scale, which is the firmness of choice for most Canadians. This is because it offers a balanced mix of cushioning and support. The mattress provides the right amount of support to keep the spine in alignment and relieve pressure points.
Douglas Summit RV Feel
The Douglas Summit RV mattress balances comfort and support perfectly. It feels soft and luxurious, and it also provides the perfect amount of support to keep your spine in alignment and relieve pressure points. The cover is made with a soft, breathable fabric that feels cool to the touch thanks to the CryoFusion™ cooling nanofibres.
These nanofibres are infused with a cooling agent that helps keep the mattress cool to the touch. This is especially beneficial for people who sleep hot, as it can help prevent them from overheating during the night.
Douglas Summit RV Comfort
The Douglas Summit RV mattress is comfortable and supportive in all sleeping positions, specifically for side and back sleepers. It provides a good balance of coziness and support, which makes it a great choice for most sleepers. The mattress generates adequate lumbar support for spinal alignment while offering sufficient cradling for tension relief. This will be further evaluated in our pressure relief performance testing section.
However, it is important to note that your individual sleep needs can vary depending on your body type and preferred sleeping positions
|Sleeper Weight||Back Sleepers||Side Sleepers||Stomach Sleepers|
|Lightweight (Under 150 lb)||Excellent||Excellent||Excellent|
|Average (150 – 230 lb)||Excellent||Excellent||Very Good|
|Above Average (Over 230 lb)||Excellent||Excellent||Good|
Constructions, Materials, and Design
Materials and Design
The Douglas Summit RV mattress is 12 inches thick and has a medium-firm feel. It is designed to provide pressure relief and conform to the body, and it also provides support. The mattress is lightweight and easy to move. It is made from layers of foam that come together to create a strong, high-performance mattress. The foams are CertiPUR-US® certified, which means they meet strict standards for emissions and content. Douglas mattresses are manufactured with premium Canadian-made foams and fabrics.
Layer 1: Douglas CoolSense Cover - A machine-washable top cover made with sustainable Infinitex™ fibers, the fibers are made from recycled plastic bottles and infused with a cooling agent, which helps to keep the mattress cool to the touch.
Layer 2: ecoLight Cooling Gel Foam - A 2.5-inch layer of memory foam with a cooling agent that helps keep the mattress cool to the touch.
Layer 3: Premium Elastex Foam - A 2.5-inch layer of memory foam that provides the mattress with just the right amount of bounce and comfort.
Layer 4: Motion Isolation Support Foam - A 7-inch high-density foam layer that isolates movement and provides edge support. This helps to prevent motion transfer between partners and provides support for people who sleep on the edge of the bed.
Performance of Douglas Summit RV
The Douglas Summit RV is a cooling mattress that is designed to help couples and those who sleep hot stay cool and comfortable all night. The mattress features a triple-action cooling system that includes CryoFusion™ cooling nanofibres in the cover, ecoLight® cooling gel foam, and Polar® phase-change material. These features help to dissipate heat, draw heat away from the body, and regulate the temperature of the bed, respectively.
Memory foam is known for its ability to conform to the body, which can make it feel warm. However, the Douglas Summit RV mattress is an exception.
We performed a cooling performance test on the mattress by lying on it for 20 minutes and monitoring for heat retention. We found that the mattress performed very well, feeling exceptionally cool throughout the test with no heat buildup. We were impressed by how well the mattress was able to regulate heat and wick moisture away.
We gave the Douglas Summit RV a 4.9/5 regarding cooling performance.
A responsive mattress quickly springs back into place when you move, allowing you to change positions easily and freely without feeling stuck.
To assess the responsiveness of the Douglas Summit RV, we performed our standard responsiveness test. We placed a 20-pound ball on the mattress and then removed it. The mattress fully recovered in exactly 1.8 seconds, indicating that it is very responsive.
The Elastex polyfoam in the middle layer provides a moderate bounce that helps you change sleeping positions quickly and easily. This mattress outperformed many competing models in terms of ease of movement, earning a solid 4.7/5 score for responsiveness.
Memory foam hugs the sleeper and is generally known for limiting movement. However, the memory foam layer in this mattress is not as thick as it is on some other beds. As a result, if you weigh less than 230 pounds, you should find that you aren’t sinking on the Douglas Summit RV.
Motion isolation is a key feature of the Douglas Summit RV mattress. It helps reduce the amount of movement transferred between partners, which is especially important for couples who share a bed and those who sleep in RVs, as it can help reduce disturbances.
The Douglas Summit RV mattress has a three-layer construction, with a top layer of memory foam, a middle layer of Elastex polyfoam, and a bottom layer of high-density foam. The memory foam layer is designed to conform to the body, while the Elastex polyfoam layer provides a moderate bounce. This combination of materials helps to isolate motion and prevent it from being transferred to the other side of the bed.
We performed two tests to measure the motion isolation of the mattress. In the first test, we placed a glass of water on the mattress and dropped a 20-pound ball on the opposite side of the glass. We saw that the water in the glass did not move much, indicating excellent motion isolation.
In the second test, we rolled on one side of the bed and had our partner report the motion they felt on the other side of the bed. Our partner did not feel any motion propagation on their side of the bed.
Overall, according to the results of our tests, the Douglas Summit RV mattress is a great choice for people who are looking for comfortable, disturbance-free sleep, even if their vehicle is moving.
We rated the Douglas Summit RV mattress a 5/5 regarding motion isolation.
Edge support is important for preventing you from rolling off the bed or feeling like you are falling out when you sit on the edge. The Douglas Summit RV mattress has good edge support, thanks to the slightly firmer Elastex polyfoam layer.
We performed two tests to measure the edge support of the mattress. In the first test, we applied firm pressure to the edge of the mattress with both hands and observed the edge’s counterpressure and supportiveness. During the test, we noticed sufficient counterpressure when we pushed the mattress’ edge, which prevented it from sinking too much. This is a sign of good edge support.
We conducted a second test by sitting on the edge of the mattress to measure how much it would sink. We noticed some sinking, but not enough to cause us to fall off. This is not an issue for lightweight and average-weight sleepers.
The Douglas Summit RV mattress has average edge support, which is why we rated it 4.8 out of 5.
We conducted our standard noise test, which involves dropping a 20-pound ball onto the mattress and listening for any squeaks or noises using our highly sensitive microphones.
During our test, we didn't hear anything, the Douglas Summit RV mattress was silent. This is impressive but not surprising, as memory foam layers muffle and absorb noise.
We gave it a 5/5 rating for noise as a result.
When choosing a mattress for sex, there are four key factors to consider: bounce, cooling, edge support, and noise.
The Douglas Summit RV mattress performs great in terms of bounce, cooling, and edge support. It is not as bouncy as some other mattresses, but it is still comfortable for most people. It also provides good edge support, so couples should not have to worry about rolling off the bed.
However, the Douglas Summit RV mattress excels in terms of noise. It is completely silent, which is a great feature for couples.
We gave this mattress a 4.8/5 regarding sex performance.
Pressure relief is one of the most important factors to consider when choosing a mattress. This is because it can significantly affect the way you sleep and your sleep quality. A mattress that provides good pressure relief will help keep your body evenly supported and prevent pressure points from forming.
The Douglas Summit RV mattress offers above-average pressure relief. This is thanks to the 2.5 inches of memory foam in the top layer, which conforms to the body's contours and helps to distribute weight evenly. The mattress also contains a resilient middle polyfoam layer and a thick 7-inch polyfoam base, which provide added support.
To evaluate how the mattress responds to different sleeping positions, we conducted a standard pressure relief test. This involved resting on the mattress for 20 minutes and then measuring the pressure in different body zones. The pressure map below shows the results of the test.
Our pressure mapping tests showed that the Douglas Summit RV mattress performs especially well for side sleepers and people weighing less than 130 pounds. This is because the mattress's medium firm feel provides enough cushioning to relieve pressure without being too soft. However, it may be too soft for some sleepers over 230 pounds.
Therefore, we gave this mattress a score of 4.9/5
