X23B bed sizes

I measured the mattresses for the beds on the x23b but then I thought it might be easier to ask here. Will they fit queen size bed sets or kings? Thanks!

I think queen flat sheets will work best. Just tuck them around and under.

We never use sheets on the bottom. We open a sleeping bag out flat and use that as the bottom, then a couple of light weight comforters on top of that. When it's really warm out we use a queen flat sheet instead of a blanket. Making beds in a hybrid seems a bit counter intuitive to us.

We use queen size sheets. They do not fit perfectly, but they fit.

We find it easiest to make the beds with one of us outside with the Emergency exit window open. I stand out side tucking in the bedding and the DW is inside doing the same.

RV mattress sizes are generally irregular as compared to home mattresses.

We've found that most any sheets large enough can easily be held in place with 8 each tarp clips and some cable ties. Fitted, flat, cheap, expensive... whatever, all will work.

I tie 2 clips together using a cable tie. We then use a set of clips under each corner to hold the sheets snugly in place. We include the bottom end of the top sheet corners with the clamping. That keeps the top sheet in place also.

Works for us even at home because we find the bottom fitted sheets often pop loose with a thicker pillow top mattress.

Thanks everyone. I'm all for the sleeping bags but my wife has other ideas, she wants a nice set of blankets. My x23b will be largely parked at seasonal site so she wants the beds made. Also our hybrid you can't access the mattresses from the outside the canvas is stitched into the frame so it will make bed making a little more difficult.

The screen window zips open for an emergency egress. That is what we open to make the bed initially. As for sheets pulling up, for us we have not had any issues.

Haha, good luck. I drove to Indiana to pick my X23B up. That morning I picked up my girlfriend and she proceeded to pack 6-8 large Rubbermade containers full of stuff into my truck that we 'needed' for the camper! Gotta love the ladies in our lives! Lol

I guess it depends upon whether one is active in bed or not. Some campers are more restless than others.
