24R - how do bed linens work on rear bed?

Hi,
We are picking up our new Solera 24R in about 3 weeks and are wondering how the bed linens work on the rear bed? It looks like fitted bottom sheets would not work unless you remove them every time you retract the bed. Do you have to remake the bed from scratch every time you start a new camp site? Just trying to figure out what to buy for linens?

One solution we are thinking is to custom make two fitted bottom sheets for each mattress half and then just fold everything on the topside half way down before retracting the bed.

Thanks!
Dave

My experience is that the mattresses move together with all the linens on. I do stand next to the bed as I'm moving the rear slide in to "assist" the rear part (closest to rear window) of the mattress as it moves on top of the front mattress. We take the comforter off and store in the closet when not using it but I don't think that's necessary.

I just use a fitted short queen set (I got a set from Camping world that has both a fitted bottom sheet and a fitted, at the foot, top sheet.)

I don't find any need to remake the bed when retracting / extending the slide. The sheets pretty much just stay on the mattress as the slide comes in and then get pretty well straightened out as the slide goes back out. I have a little more trouble with the Forest River supplied quilt - the material is quite slippery so it doesn't stay in place as well.

I have a foam topper, mattress pad, fitted sheet and quilt on mine and have no problem extending or retracting. Just a smooth out when extended.

These are great comments. We are picking up our Forester 24R (same as Solera 24R), this Friday, and my husband and I were just talking about the bed! Great timing! Thank you. I'm also wondering about the privacy curtains for the cab area. We were hoping they would have been the type that cover the driver, passenger windows and windshield. Any thoughts on that? We are going from a fifth wheel, so we have no experience with this, and many other things! I'll be here a lot, I believe! 😆

The privacy curtain on our Solera has Velcro tabs to the u shaped area that surrounds the cab space under the forward bunk. Since that cuts off access to most of the cab itself, we opted to buy the custom windshield and side window covers.

Where did you purchase your windshield and side covers?

There are many excellent suggestions here on check out before taking delivery and how critical it is. Good luck on Friday and come back here to share your experience, perhaps with some photos. We are watching Forester 24R as well and would love to hear your experience.
