Queen Size Sheets

Thank you for your suggestion. Those sheets sound really nice. We expect to have Target stores soon in Ontario.

We just a new Surveyor SP189 and I just tried to make the bed for the first time. Does anyone have a tip for making a bed snugly fitted into the walls on three sides? It was a 20-min work-out for me!

I do a lot of rolling around on the bed trying to get those darn things on! It's become a 2-person job. Throw in a couple hot flashes and you'll feel like you've run a marathon! No easy way I can figure out to get these things on when you can't walk around the bed.

Sheets

We just use reg. sheets on the queen.
DH and I make the bed together. Pull the mattress down a foot or two. Put the fitted sheet on at top and half the sides. Push back into the tight space and finish. Need two but it works.

Yup - Rolling around is pretty much the method I use for my 3 wall bed (aka capitan's bed). I'm short and the bed is a bit high since I replaced the puppy pad with a real mattress. Anyway I will slide the mattress forward towards me so I can tuck in the back side (I usually climb on top and tuck it in before sliding the mattress back in place and tucking in the rest. There is a cubby on the third wall so I can cheat tucking in the feet section.

It does get easier in time...maybe because we learned to live with it as it is.

Get normal sheets, but good quality ones (which will cost less than the RV ones of much poorer quality) The reason for the good quality ones is they will have high quality elastic around the edges which will help keep them on.

we have room on three sides. but you can take vinyl floor tiles (the peel and stick) and put them under the mattress. It will move much easier that way.

Make sure that the bottom sheet has elestic on all four sides and sew elastic on the bottom of the top sheet, or sew the bottom and top sheet together (like a waterbed sheet set) at the bottom.

OMG that would drive me insane!! LOL. I like to hang my feet out from under the covers to regulate my temp, and I'd feel really claustrophobic. My DH would love it though; he prefers everything tucked in on all sides.
