What are you using for bedding?

Getting ready to move up from tents to A122. We are wondering what others use for bedding. Sleeping bags or sheet with blanket. Apparently the bed is 54 x 82, and we cannot find this size anywhere. Has anyone found them? We appreciate you help.

Just use the regular size sheets, they are a little big, you can buy sheet corner holders and use them to make it fit. I use 1 on my set of queen size sheets and it works just fine.
Camping World has the sheets that fit but they are expensive.
Enjoy the new unit.
May you have many nights under the stars

I'm not that familiar with the A122 but the 54x84 measurement seems to be an odd size. From a quick search the two dealerships I looked at list the bed as double. The 84" length is throwing me off. Once you measure the bed match regular sheets to fit it.

We used two big sleeping bags zipped together in our popup because we only had access to one side of the bed. We didn't want to mess with trying to make up the bed while crawling on it - made no sense to me.
Now we use fitted flannel sheets, a fleece blanket and a light comforter because we have a walk around bed.

Maybe the dealer gave me the wrong size???

Do they work with heated mattress?

I purchased the mattress cover and fitted sheets at Amazon.

Amazon.com: Extra Ordinaire Mattress Pad - Restful Nights, XLFull: Home & Kitchen

Amazon.com: Leggett & Platt Home Textiles QH0376 Flat Fitted Full Extra Long Pillow Case, Beige: Home & Kitchen

I am happy with both. The sheets are very sheer and "silk like".

The length (84") is queen size the width (54") is full size.

Queen size fitted sheet and queen size mattress pad with full size flat sheet should work fine. You can buy 300 thread count different size fitted or flat sheets separately at Walmart.

Your heated mattress will be really nice on those cool early Spring and late Fall nights!

We use regular queen sets. Have a 6 inch mattress topper so the sheets actually fit!! No slipping or anything. Made a good mattress even better!

No, that's the size. Our A128 doesn't have the heated mattress so we use two sleeping bags zipped together as was previously mentioned.

Wow- that's as long as regular household California King size mattress. I'm impressed. Usually we hear about how short the bed is.

We use queen size sheets, blankets, and comforter. Why not make it just like home?

For the conveinance, we use sleeping bags and a blanket if needed. In the morning we toss them into a bin and over and done with. Sheets just don't seem to stay in place for us because of the odd sizes.

We have a Flagstaff 425D with a queen size pullout at one end, and a king at the other. Both have heated mattresses and both sets of fitted sheets were purchased at Target and they work fine. Also, we carry two full sized sleeping bags (not Mummy style) for cooler nights, and usually just open them completely and use as a comforter....although on cold nights we crawl in and zip them up. As many other pupers probably do, we put the sheets on and off when the roof is raised and the corners are unzipped. That way someone can get to all the corners easily (just lift the rear and sides) and pull the corners over the mattress....no crawling over the bed to get to the rear corners.
