Bed-making help

We love our new Jay Flight 22FB but one thing has turned out to be a pain: making the bed! Does anyone have any hints on how to make the bed neatly when it's right up against the "bedside tables"? We like being able to use sheets and blankets but it's so hard to tuck all of that in. We always used sleeping bags in our old campers. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Making the bed is definitely a pain. With our 2007 Eagle we at least had night stands to work around. With our White Hawk there are no night stands and the head of the bed is tucked about 2 feet in.

What we have done is to pull out the mattress as far as it will come out, which is about a foot for ours. We then fit the fitted sheet at the head of the bed first and then fit it at the foot. Tuck in the sides and then push in the mattress. The top sheet and bedspread is easy to tuck in at the foot once the mattress is pushed back in. If you have one of the layouts where the wall is against the foot of the bed and you enter the bedroom from either side then it will be much more difficult. That is one reason that we made sure whatever floorplan we got had sufficient room at the foot of the bed.

We love the double sleeping bag. Really easy, warm and cozy, and keeps a bit of the traditional camping feel while out living in luxury.

Kitty and I do it like RVer-Bill. I've tried to talk Kitty in to making the bed with the head at the foot, but she will not hear of it.

Thanks everyone! We have the Cabelas Adam & Eve king size sleeping bags and may just fall back on them. Otherwise I probably should just do like Seann45 says - tuck in the bottom and don't sweat the top. That's the part I'm finding hard to do!
