Bed sheets

What/where does every one use for their bed sheets? I will tell you what sleeping places I have and any help you can give me such as what you use and a good place to purchase would be greatly appreciated.

front bedroom/sleeper sofa with air mattress/U-shaped dinette/4 bunks in rear...2 large on the bottom, 2 smaller on top/"trundle" mattresses as Jayco calls them under the bottom bunks. Still haven't pulled them out so not sure of the size.

I know you can buy RV sheet sets to fit these, but they seem over priced...even then I don't know what size to order. Is there a standard size sold in walmart or where ever that fits as well? As always, thanks in advance.

We buy regular sheets and work they work just fine. We typically find that anything marketed as being "RV" this or that is typically a ripoff.

X2 on wmoses statement on anything marketed as "RV". You can usually find something just as good, or better, from a reputable manufacturer. Like toilet paper, for instance - single ply off the grocery shelf is just as good as special "RV" paper at twice or three times the price.

X2 on popjim52

We purchased from AB Lifestyle. Perfect fit, great quality, made in America. I think they are very reasonably priced, even being the make RV sizes as well as traditional sizes too. Also, i was able to get mattress pads that fit, for me that was mor important than the actual sheets.

I am a satisfied customer, and happy camper.

We use the jersey sheets from target. Got queen and they fit our front and rear bunk perfect. I'm not sure what size are bunks are but do know they are 2 different sizes and the queen fit both.

We use regular sheets that have elastic all the way around the bottom sheet. If the sheet is a little big the elastic pulls the extra material in under the mattress.

Use jersey sheets from Target on our sofa sleeper. Fits very well.
