Post Queen Bed in 19

One of the reasons we went for the 19 was the permanent bed. Well now that means "making the bed" each day or just look messy. We are now thinking of just using sleeping bags and pillows. Does anyone have any other suggestions or recommendations

We used the "TravaSak" found at the local "Tuesday Morning". It is a 4 season comforter/sheet/sleeping bag combo that looks presentable lying on the bed. It has a summer top and reverse is winter top. The problem is, no longer being made. But I'm sure there are other similar items. Fit the queen perfectly and now on the full sized 21' bed. Here is an imitator..http://www.rvsuperbag.com/Standard-Q...oductinfo/RVQ/

Gave up on sheets and such. Too hard tucking in against the rear wall.
Have two sleeping bags ( one 3lb, one 5lb ) zipped together. When it's warm, the 3lb goes on top. When cold, the 5lb is on top. Have another under the seat, if required.

We use a Travasak also that we bought via E-Bay. Works great and easy to roll-up and store.

Get a nice quilt or other bed topper and customize to fit where it doesn't need to be tucked in. You're not looking to use it for sleeping comfort. Make the bed as best you can, then lay this topper over it.

OR, put up a nice curtain! Other benefits to this idea too.

That's what I would do, YMMV

We can sympathize with folks who have to make up and break down the bed each day. It is one reason we moved up from a 16 Scamp to a 5er Scamp and now the 5.0 Escape. We are very happy with our 5.0 bed. The fitted queen sheet goes on easily and it is not difficult to get a flat sheet on (just tucked at the bottom). Then we just throw a comforter on (tucked only at the bottom) and supplement with sleeping bags laid on top as needed...and of course my hot water bottle under the covers on my side in the cool times! Easy to straighten up in the morning and, as Donna D says...the curtains are always a fallback for a messy bed!

There are also sheets made for truckers beds and sofa beds that have the top sheet attached to the bottom of the fitted sheet which we sometimes used in the 16' Scamp.

Like these Sofa Bed sheets...can be ordered 'attached' at the bottom. Then just throw on a comforter.

Sofa bed sheets are for shorter mattress lengths. But, it's easy enough to do if you can sew a straight stitch on a sewing machine. Waterbed sheets are the same thing... top sheet sewn to the bottom sheet at the bottom. Actually, if you sleep like me, it's a good idea. My feet never come "untucked."
