Does anyone have issues with their bedding?

We continuously have issues with the sheets & blanket sliding off of the foot of the bed. It doesn't matter if we use cotton sheets or satin. Every morning we are left with only the spread covering us. The only sheets I have found that do not slide are flannel. And the husband can't stand flannel sheet.

Helpful suggestions would be nice.

Are you still using the fitted comforter? I found everything sort of fell when using that. Once we switched to a classic comforter, we don't have the issue any longer.

We use regular sheets from Walmart. I don't recall where our duvet and comforter came from, but it was a household kind of store.

An alternative is Beddy's. We have them for the kids' bunks but I have friends who love them for the adult's queen-sized bed.

See a review:

Yes, we are using the comforter that came with the trailer. (I haven't decided on what I want to replace it with yet.)

On our next trip, I may have to try using the comforter from our bed to see if that works.

Thank you both for your help!

YES! By all means, get rid of that original "comforter". Those things, along with the curtains & valances are for sales lot display only.

I am in the process of making new curtains . (The ones that came with our TT, in my opinion, don't match the comforter.)

We use elastic straps that clip onto the fitted sheet underneath the mattress. It has really helped us out.

I've been looking at quickzipsheet.com

Haven't decided on them yet (expensive) but they look like a good idea. Imagine a fitted bottom sheet with deep pockets and tight elastic but with zippers on top that attach to a removable middle panel. You just remove the middle panel for laundering.

For now, we have fitted bottom sheets with deep pockets and a top sheet and a comforter. We have to wash everything often because, you got it: The Dog Sleeps With Us. He's tiny (Chihuahua) and has a ramp with cleats up to the bed and a piddle pad in the shower stall. Time was when I would have said "Ugg!" but he is so very much loved!

Did you really just say...."Duvet" ??
That's two points off your man card.

Just got large sized sleeping bag from LL Bean. Might be worth trying.
