The bed in a 21

Hi All
I've just read that the bed in the 21 is 80" long. Is this true? Will a fitted double bed sheet with 12 " deep pockets work on the mattress? Does anyone have suggestions for the bedding? I was planning to use the linens I have for my Casita. I definitely do not want to pick up my new Escape and find that I am unable to make the bed.

Thanks Mitzi

A Full size(Double) is 54 X 74; a Queen is 60 X 80. Don't see how a fitted Double sheet would work, however a Queen would.

I used a queen fitted and it's just long enough, It is too wide, but I tuck the extra fabric down. I found that the jersey fitted bottom sheets are stretchy enough to get rid of the extra fabric, especially the less expensive ones at Walmart. If we use it more, I will tailor the side of the sheet to get rid of a little extra fabric, but we used it that way for 2 months.

I had my mattress cut smaller so that it did not come into contact with the exterior walls, maybe that is why my double sheets worked.

Full XL sheets are 54 x 80"....
We use a Full XL mattress protector and queen size Travasak.

We got these to keep the fitted sheets from getting scrambled up. Have not tried them yet. We could not get the cheaper ones to work. These remind me of the suspenders my mother made me wear when I was a tyke.

Thanks. I didn't know there was such a thing as full XL bedding. I found some online and will be getting them soon.

We have the standard mattress in our 21. I use standard full sheets over that mattress plus a 2" memory foam mattress topper and it works great. And that is with normal cotton (not stretchy) sheets. I think you'll be fine!
