Bedding for 17c

I am picking up my 17c this weekend and wanted to get some bedding ready for it. There are two queen size beds, but I'm sure with the depth of the cushions, queen sized bedding would probably be too big. Will full size bedding fit? Any other ideas?

Queen size bedding is the correct size. The fitted sheets are a little loose since the pad isn't as thick as a normal bed mattress, but they fit pretty well. We put a thin fitted mattress pad on first, then a fitted sheet. Then put sleeping bags over the top.

Thanks! I couldn't wait and just got back from shopping. I got comforters instead of sleeping bags, though. Are the sleeping bags just easier to store or warmer?

Personally I prefer full bedding - that is part of the "luxury" of being in a camper and not a tent!

As far as the beds - if you have trouble with the sheets - get some of those corner sheet holders - they are like $5 a set at Target. They will stretch the sheet out and it will fit very nicely on the bed and not bunch up.

We don"t have our trailer yet but the plan is to use our duck down duvet. It's great for warmth in colder weather yet light weight and cooler in warm weather. I also am Thinking of buying two flat sheets(prob only double size...will have to measure) and sewing them together to make a "sleeping bag" for the mattresses which would then become the bottom sheet. Then put a duvet cover on the duvet for two reasons 1. To keep the down duvet from getting dirty ( they need to be drycleaned) 2. It becomes the top sheet. Then when folding up, the "sleeping bag sheet" should be able to stay on (come off to wash of course) and all you have to fold and put away is the down duvet inside its cover.

Go here for custom made (made in the USA) bedding... not cheap but very good quality.

I use regular queen sheets with elastic all the way around. I have never had a problem with the sheets not fitting, and they don't come off.
