Tent Ends - What type/size bedding do you use?

We are picking up our new 19H in May (can't wait) and I am trying to figure out what bedding to use. For the kids it is easy - two sleeping bags. But for DH and I we would like to make the bed. I understand the mattress sizes are 60x75. Do I really need to buy special RV sheets or can I use regular queens? As for the comforter, I'm guessing that I don't need a Queen size since I won't want the extra hanging over. Would a full (double) comforter be large enough?

We put queen sheets on our bunks (X23B) and the fitted bottom sheet is a bit too big but it works well enough. It follows that the top sheet is also a generous size for the bed. We have a queen blanket and comforter when needed and they are also generous but not too large for us. If our outing will include more than one campground we just fold the sheets and blanket up with the mattress when moving. Saves a little time when we get to the next stop.

We use standard queen size bedding. I personally think the mattress feels cold (even in the summer), so we put a light fleece blanket on top of the mattress first, then the usual bedding. If I recall correctly we us a queen comforter, and we roll the edge (dinette side) under itself and back up onto the mattress for the day (hope that makes sense).

Just as a tip for making the bed faster and easier. We unzip the emergency exit screen from the bunk end and one of us is outside and one inside. This makes tucking the corners in and making the bed really easy.

Target sells the cotton t-shirt feeling sheets queen size. They fit great and also come in a bag which stores the sheets well during travel/storage. We use a queen comforter.

You may want to think about a 2" foam topper, really adds comfort plus it fills out the fitted sheet Larry

Regular Queen size sheets. As for comforter or blankets, I just grab what I have laying around at home and tuck things in.

I use regular queen size sheets, blankets, and comforter. I just tuck in the extra. I do use bottom sheets that have elastic all the way around. It pulls the excess sheet (if the sheets are made for a thick mattress) under the bunkend.

For those cold weather campers out there, my wife and I bought a Queen heated mattress pad. Oh man, I can't wait for our first trip out in March!

We bought two heated mattress pads this past fall, and used them during the last few trips, they were fabulous!
