If you have the short RV queen I wish you luck with whatever to try.

I hated the one we had so much when we up-graded I would not even consider looking at a TT unless it had the 60" X 80" queen.

We've got a 60x74 shortie walkaround queen, we just pulled it down to the entertainment center, put a body pillow at the head to fill the gap, and used deep pocket double sheets. Has worked pretty well so far. And we can still access the storage underneath.

We use just regular sheets from the house... aleady had them, not expensive and just tuck them in. They stay pretty well that way. even with two big doggies wanting to sleep with us.

My wife doesn't like the sheets tucked in at the foot of the (queen) mattress so they are folded up at the bottom and a king size comforter is used on top . It works for us.

Anyone ever try just adding a plywood extension board to the bottom of the bed(that extends to the end of the mattress)??

Happy trails,

Happy trails,

We did on our old Dutchmen - it had the bed head at the front with feet facing bath - no slide then

We added on to platform and put old mattress from house when we put new one in - worked great

I sew the bottom ends and about 6" up the sides of ours. Called a "people case" in our family. Problem solved.

Finding properly fitting sheets for the 'queen' size we have has been futile. Wasn't aware of the different lengths. Guess it's off to BB&B for the alligator clips!

When we had short queen mattress we would pull mattress out from wall and the fill the gap with several pillows as we are tall and didn't like our feet hanging off end of bed. K mart sells the elastic corner "garters" for the sheets. When we traded rvs we got fiver with reg queen mattress this time.
