Question Bunk bed & J cube question????

We recently purchased at 2012 Signature Ultra Lite 8281WS 5'er with bunkhouse that has a top bunk bed and a lower J-cube. Our bunkroom won't be used on regular basis as it was purchased for grandchildren and they don't go every time we go camping. Our question to you out there that have same or similar models what type of bedding do you use in bunkhouse? Do you use the fitted/flat sheet, blanket configuration or have any of you tried sleeping bags in place of the sheets & blanket? The sizes of both the bunk bed and the J-cube mattress for the best fit, sheets would be special order items. Is it worth paying the extra for the sheets to fit perfectly or do we just give the kids sleeping bags and say "night night"? I know having bunk beds in a previous TT were a pain to make up!! Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated!! We are heading out this weekend for our first "dry" run camping at Elk Neck State Park in North East, MD...without the grandkids...too cold for them!! Daytime high should be 50 with night time low around 30. Wish us luck

we just use regular queen sheets on the bottom, they fit a little loose, and we use a single on the top bunk

We have the same thing and we only have 2 little boys so they sleep in sleeping bags and we fold them up and store in the top bunk during the day. We use the top bunk as storage for now. If we have any more little ones that may change.

My cousin uses sleeping bags in the bunks when the grandkids come along. A lot easier to deal with and just as easy to put away without breaking the back.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
