I'm a new kid on the camping block. As many of you I'm sure have discovered we have a "Short Queen" bed. Do you pay a premium at the camping store for short sheets, or buy "Regular Queen" sheets locally?

We got some cute camping sheets from camping world for about $25. I thought it was pretty good. I have looked on Amazon, but the price wasn't any better.

Regular Queen sheets then tuck in what you don't need.

Welcome to the world of RVing!

Many of us use regular sheets. If need be just tuck in any extra material if the pockets are really deep. A long time ago I brought two sets of regular nice sheets that were on clearance from Target. They were my favorite sheets for the longest time. Regular sheets are not a perfect fit but I have a corner bed that hides the extra material pretty well.

Iwannacamp - $25 for sheets at CW is a good price. At that price I would buy them too.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

I bought a Queen sheet set at Marshall's for our MH. The issue with the short queen bed is the fitted bottom sheet and fitted mattress pad do not stay put, and never seem to stay. This makes for crawling on knees to re-fit the sheets constantly. Our bed is wedged between walls. Our last short trip we used an open sleeping bag to sleep on. For our upcoming trip I am going to measure, then sew a wide length of elastic band to both sides of the bottom sheet. It will go under the mattress just at the foot of the bed to keep the sheet and pad in place, I hope.

Years ago I made what I call "people cases". Two flat sheets put right sides together. Sew the bottom and about 10-12" up the two sides. The bottom sheet gives you lots of material to tuck under the mattress on top and then just fold the top sheet down over your blanket. No toes sticking out. I made two of these and they are still going strong. Worked well on our fifth wheel and works well now in the motorhome.

We used regular sheets for a long time. Bought some short queen sets from AB Lifestyles this year. We really needed a new set for the camper anyway so we went with these and they were a little pricey, but we're happy with them.
