Jim - Do you find that regular Queen sheets fit the mattress and, because of the lack of "overhang", did you use a Queen duvet or a Double?

Queen sheets fit great, even though our mattress is only 5" thick (I believe). We do have a queen duvet, but a double would probably do fine, and be less bunched up. When we get our new mattress, we are planning to have it cut about 2-3" narrower to allow the duvet to at be tucked down the sides, and making it easier to make up.

Kind of pricey, but we bought one (queen size) and like it a lot. So far only used the "summer side".

We use a RVsuperbag too and love it. They are pricey but very nice. We had a full size in the Casita we used for about 3 years and just bought a new one for our 19'

Which brings me to yet another set of questions (don't 'ya love it ... ). Since you've had your mattress for about four years and are now buying another: 1) are you ordering a new one from Escape or somewhere else? 2) Would it be worthwhile to order a thicker mattress in the first place?

In our 17 we have a double comforter--but in order to have "tuckability" with not a lot of bulk--I sewed on all four sides pieces of fleece...This way all four sides are neatly tucked in and stays relatively in place during the day.
was good to read the responses--thank you..
Those bedsacs look neat but think we'll probably stick with what we have--will price out a new mattress though when we are at the factory on Friday..

I will just buy one local. At first I had thought of getting natural latex, but a 7" thick one weights 105 pounds, a bit heavier than I would like. I do want to keep it as thin and light as possible. We plan to go out this winter to a handful of local stores that make mattresses and try some different ones out. I do believe we will stick to foam though, as there are lots of comfy options, with different layering of densities. We could even get one made with different densities on either side to fit my wife and me different, but we tend to switch sides up all the time.

Definitely a lot of thoughts and ideas here so thank you all for your responses. I'm thinking that having the mattress cut an inch or two narrower, a mattress topper, queen sheets and a double duvet (with fleece) might just be the way we want to go. The RVBedsacs do look interesting and would be great for a bed that doubles as a table.

(BTW, you might find http://www.sleeplikethedead.com/bed-...view-home.html interesting.)
