Just get a sheet set for the next size up bed. that way the fitted sheet is plenty large and you tuck the excess under the mattress. I do that at home as the top sheets never are wide enough for me on whatever size bed they're made for. I use king on the queen, for example.

I think Tford may be right, they're not showing up on the websites when you click links to buy them.

The superbag seems to still be available, but I think i have some good ideas now. The mattress cover doesn't have to come off that often and as long as i have Terry to anchor one side, that will be fine. I've been thinking about using a king sheet for the bottom and maybe I'll try that first. The memory foam idea is interesting and also the duvet cover. Thanks everyone.

Meanwhile, I think it's pretty funny that our first camping trip of the season will be in the driveway while our kids take over the house.

Yes, but it sure is nice to have it to use that way. We often take our trailer when visiting to use as our own personal bedroom, c/w ensuite bath. I can get up as early as I like, and I know where all the fixin's for coffee are.

Why do you not have some of your kids out there though, that is what we usually do at our house.

Sleeping bags might be the easiest after all if you get one on those "liners". They're flannel and actually like a sleeping bag itself, as it zips. Then instead of the whole bag to wash, you just have the liner...which can also double as a light weight sleeping bag....Mine cost $9.00 and can be found at sporting goods stores..not sure if Wally World carries them.

The Escape is literally less than ten feet from our neighbor's window so whoever uses it has to be really really quiet. Our kids have never spent any time in the trailer so they are not familiar with the workings -- the heat, the fire escape window , the screen door, the table, etc. Also, our house will be popping, the baby up at 5 A.M., the four year old having the occasional temper tantrum, the twenty somethings cooking food at midnight -- the trailer will hopefully be an oasis of sanity.

And this way we won't have to change the sheets that soon, which is why I started this thread in the first place

Sandra, does the liner zip to the sleeping bag?

No kidding! We have friends about 90 minutes south. We frequently take ou 19' and park in their driveway when they have parties. They have a 20amp dedicated circuit we can tap into for the AC and I don't have to watch my BAL () since my "bedroom" is just outside.

They did and then Camping World brought them back as recently as last year (because we bought one) and then they were gone again, but the threads remain and she was looking for search words that would reveal lots of discussions on what people do about beds. Both are still valid search terms for lots of previous discussions.
