Cardinal front living question

We have a 2015 Front living Cardinal that we love. With a king bed and a washer/dryer, there's not much room in the bedroom. Any advice on how to "easily" get sheets on the bed?

I read somewhere about using a mattress topper and just putting the fitted sheet on the topper. Probably have to alter the fitted sheet some.
We have the 3030 that came with king bed. We cut the bed box down to queen. Much more room on each side and lots easier to make bed.

We are about to pull the trigger on a Cardinal as well - we are vacillating
between 2 floorplans but were wondering how much room would be available with the king bed. I was afraid this would be the case and am glad we made the decision to go with the Queen bed.

I know this does not help you much, but FWIW, I believe the bed "frame" is the same size for both the King & Queen - if it really is a PITA for you to change sheets, you could swap out your King mattress for a Queen.

we have the 2015 front living room cardinal with a king bed in back. yes it is tight, and we are large people (both over 6' tall). I get on one side and the wife on the other (carefully) and we get the sheets on. when we first got he trailer I thought i'd die trying to squeeze into the side of the mattress but now we're adjusting and adapting. leaving the back closet doors open helps. we're also wondering if we can get rid of the dresser at the oot of the bed (ie relocate it, but to where?)

We have a king at home and found the queen in our previous Cardinal was cramped. I like the idea of relocating that dresser at the foot of the bed....wonder if it would also fit in the closet??

I think I've determined that I just have to convince hubby to help with changing the sheets! 😉

We have the 3850RL Cardinal with the king bed and my wife has no problem with the space to make the bed. I am glad since I had rather not do this task.

We have a Sandpiper Destination model with a King bed. Our bedroom is quite tight too with wall on one side (with sliding bathroom door) and mirrored closet doors on the other. We have found that if we both get on the sides and pull the bed about 1/2 way out towards the foot edge - it is much easier to make the bed. Then after everything (sheets/cotton blanket/quilt) are on - we slide of back up. We keep the pile of bedding close to us - so when the bed is slid off - we can still reach them.

Also a note about camping with LARGE dogs... We used to sleep with our heads at the head board. Every morning at 5:30am the pups would think it was time for breakfast. If we didn't reply quickly - they would be sitting on us - pleading for breakfast. We found that flipping our bed and putting the pillows at the foot board - allow us extra sleep. The dogs come in and sniff us (at our heads) - we pat their heads to greet them and they lay down again for an hour or two. I guess they were just wanting us to show them immediate attention when THEY woke up!

Happy camping!

I help my DW change and make up the bed and we have a king also. It is not too bad.
If I do it bad enough she tells me to go back to the front and drink Baileys and coffee. Dang she looks at FROG too.
Why do I get the smaller side?
