Bedding for bunks

Would twin size bedding work?

I strongly recommend The Foam Factory. You can get custom cut sizes of foam. I got 2 pieces for the bunks that my in-laws sleep on and they said it went from being a crappy bed to being really comfortable. We went with the Lux Foam - Reg (M) in 4". They did throw the existing mattresses on top, but were still very comfortable.

In fact, in the next couple of days - I'm ordering foam to replace all of the cushions in the dinette for my camper (I work from it when we're travelling and sit for 8-10 hours a day).

What about sheets sizes, though? I'm looking to get waterproof mattress pads for the bunks (dogs + kids, you know) and hoping a twin size will be acceptable?

We are definitely going to be getting a foam topper for our bed.

Ahh, good question - I do believe we use a twin size. The problem isn't the sheet - I do think that fits fine (for us! different camper - 30x70 bunk size). It's the comforter tends to be way too big. I tuck a good 1/3 under the back side of the mattress to keep it from falling out. I'd actually love to take the comforter to a seamstress to have it cut down and re-hemmed.

For the waterproof mat, we used a crib-sized mat for my bed at home that was "strategically placed" to the area that would be peed upon. Didn't need to cover the whole thing. BUT, we also don't have dogs.

Thanks. I'll probably get the whole pad. Muddy feet tend to get everywhere and I don't need that wet dog smell to linger! I figure if it's too big, It can just be tucked in a bit more.
