We have had 2014 since Sept 2014 and find the split bed very comfortable. We use queen fitted sheet on it. Then flat sheet and blanket as necessary (we do not carry bedspread that came with the unit). When we slide the bed in, believe it or not, the mattress stacks within fitted sheet with minor adjustment necessary. Conversely, when we slide bed out, fitted sheet and other bedding goes back into place. We were surprised the way it worked with little problems.
hope this helps. Good luck.
