I'll ask DW. We have same mattress, 2017 model, and I haven't noticed any problems with sheets. We have some. They fit. And now I'm at the end of my knowledge. LOL

We have 2016 Cedar Creek with the Trump mattress and a 4" foam topper. My wife found sheets on Amazon for this combination. She measured the total deep and than found some that meet this dimension.

You probably have a "RV King" mattress like we do. We put regular King Size sheets on and secure the corners with elastic straps. Look for 'sheet suspenders' online or you can easily make your own.

We bought our sheets at the frog rally from LCI (Lippert). Ours is the Trump king 72x80.

Same here, not a king, not a queen, I just bought king sheets (queen might work too) and tuck them in like Spock said.
I know it's frustrating....

OK, DW says she just buys King and folds them under, and isn't picky about exact fit.

If I knew they were not full King, I'd suggest this.......it's what I do for every sheet I use that is smaller than King.

Buy the next larger size of TWO flat sheets. Fold the corners of the bottom one "hospital corner" style. If you were in the Army, you know how! LOL That is going to move far less than 'fitted' sheets, which I absolutely hate. Can't fold them, they wrinkle up, and they aren't fitted. Then put the 2nd flat on top, same hospital corner on the bottom only.

Wannabe-caterpillars don't have it so snug.

Trouble is, there's no sheet one size larger than King..........

Google custom sheets. There are a bunch of companies that make custom size sheets for any matress. I don't recall where were bought our two sets of fitted sheets, but they fit fine and we've been using them for 10 years.

Buy Cal-King Deep Pocket Sheets. They are 72Ē x 84Ē. The width is right and the extra length is easily tucked under.

We don’t have a king but a queen. We take a regular pair of suspenders and clip them under to holed the fitted sheet in place

Queen (60" w), California King (72" w) and King mattress (77" w) are all the same length. The "California King" is 72" wide,and may be another name for the "Trump mattress" .

Queen Beds
A standard queen bed measures 60 by 80 inches. A queen size can be good for growing children and even taller adults or couples who prefer sleeping closer together. In an RV this size is called a regular queen. RVs also have a three-quarter queen, which is 48 by 75 inches, and a queen short, measuring 60 by 75 inches.

King Beds
An RV king has the same 80-inch length as a regular king mattress but is narrower, 72 inches instead of the standard 76. King beds are generally the best choice for couples. Each person will have a sleeping space equivalent to a twin extra long mattress. It is also ideal for growing families or for pet owners who may have their pets sleeping with them.

You have helped answer the question for the OP. The 72' wide mattress for terms of sheet size would be considered a California King set as indicated in my previous post. The Trump mattress must be a nickname in the camper set. They are not as popular in the sticks and bricks application, but they do market them.

Check out ABLifestyles, they have nice sheets that are made for rv bed sizes. We have a hybrid and the sheets we have for both of our bunks fit well and the top sheet is fitted like the bottom sheet, so it does not pull out at the foot!

My wife was sick of the loose fitting king size. Bought a king and queen flat sheet and sewed them together making a very large pillow case that is a perfect fit.

Not all RV Kings are 72x80. Ours is 72x76.
