We have had bunk and corner beds for years on the last two TTs and its never been a problem.


We just put a memory foam toper because of the thin mattresses and just make it up.


Pull the back corner to you and slip over the fitted sheet, done!

My 2011 Georgetown 327DS, from the floor plans, looks like there's accrss to both sides of the master bed. Unfortunately. on the rear of the coach side of the bed, the floor is raised up above the height of the bottom of the mattress.

After discovering how easy it is to make the beg by pulling out the mattress and crawling over it to get the fitted sheet under it, I came to the conclusion that there's a simple way to decrease production of RVs with this problem.

All that's necessary is to have the floor plan designer's wife change the sheets three times on each new design floor plan. That's the kind of feedback that gets results.

We have a full walk-around queen in our trailer and we still use sleeping bags as "blankets". We've had them since we had our pop-up years ago and there's nothing wrong with them. Might as well use them.

I modified our fitted sheets and the comforter, but that really didn't help when it comes to actually making up the bed. I have to crawl across to get the far left corner....well don't make me describe this ordeal. I'm in pretty good shape and fairly agile, so men, don't think I don't know what you are thinking! Have Gary do it, you say? We have an agreement that he takes care of the outside stuff, maintenance, etc. I'm out of luck there.

OMG We are just getting our camper ready for our first trip. Between foam pads, mattress pads & sheets, I was exhausted! I never even thought about doing it with the bunk mattresses removed first! Or sewing the bottom of the flat sheet to the bottom of the fitted sheet. Or, sliding the mattress out a bit on our Murphy bed to more easily get those corners on good! Thanks for the great ideas!

If people quit buying corner bed units they would quit building them.

Just a little hint. Men's regular suspenders (2) sets one at the top and one at the foot. This set up keeps corners and sides of sheets where they belong.

One of the main reasons I bought my Dynamax DX-3 was because it had a bed that was accessible on three sides. Granted, the Serta mattress Dynamax put on was GARBAGE. Since I've changed it, I'm sleeping like a baby. I also changed from the bastard "King" size (73"wide x 76"long) to a TRUE Queen width (60") x 76" the max length the closed slide allowed.

I do have to agree with the original poster. The knuckleheads who design many (most?) RVs NEVER actually use them. If they did, they'd KNOW the "eye candy" they build into their product is often impractical when RVing (especially for extended RVing).

Corner bed be praised

I know all the corner bed haters have their reasons, but I think someone needs to stick up for the corner bed.

Because we have a corner bed, our rig can be smaller - 25 feet in our case. We don't need extra length or a slide (don't like them) to accommodate the width to walk around three sides. For us, small size is more important than an easy to make bed.

We move around a lot and don't pull a toad so we need to be able to fit into a normal parking space at a trail head or state park parking lot.

The time may come when we won't want to put up with the corner bed, but for now, its our friend.
