Then you could go the "travasak" idea which is super easy...

I'm an adult of the waterbed age. Loved it! Making the bed was a PITA. Then waterbed sheets were invented. Bottom sheet with pockets and the top sheet was sewn to at the bottom area of the bottom sheet. Only one sheet to tuck in and the top sheet never came untucked. I sleep in 600 count Egyptian cotton sheets in Ten Forward. I will be sewing the top sheet...aka waterbed sheets, to my trailer sets.

We went the Travasak route and love it. A large double sleeping bag with the sheets Velcro'd inside it. One side is lighter for summer weight and the other side is heavier for winter weight. smooth it out and you're good to go. Making the bed takes 3 minutes. Wouldn't go back to fitted sheets etc for any reason.

We went with the fitted sheets/duvet route at first and then bought a Travasak (Camping World is now carrying them). So much easier to make. In fact, we like it so much, we bought another for home when the grandkids visit (sofa bed). Plus, we can use it if they go camping with us (dinette/bed).
