But is it for the 21' bed? Which really isn't a standard size bed, I believe. I'll just get a foam pad and cut it down.

And I found my sheets and comforter at Plow and Hearth! With cats, of course.

Yes, we like it so much we'll probably switch out the 19 mattress for one in the next year or so. An electric knife trims it like butter so you can easily cut it to custom fit the space in the 21.

Well, now I'm really confused. I looked at them on-line and the one I saw was covered, like a regular mattress, and had multiple layers. You wouldn't want to cut into that type of mattress.

I figured I'd either add a pad to the regular mattress or remove it completely (or not get it) and put in a thick foam pad. I really need the length of the bed, so I can't put in a regular full size mattress in there. 5" is too much length of me to lose on a bed.

I love that the bed has the length of the queen (which I need), but hate that it's not as wide.

I know the mattress in the trailer will kill my back sooner rather than later, so I suspect I'll be getting a queen size foam pad and trimming it down.
We sleep on a Tempurpedic (sp) mattress that we are going to cut down to fit the 21 if we ever go "full-time"

I believe all the the layer are glued together. So I'm just going to put a fitted sheet on it and no one will ever now.
We watched this video on YouTube, maybe you'll find it helpful.

Hopefully I added that correctly!

Full sheets work on 21 mattress

I have used both percale and flannel full sized sheets on our 21 mattress. For the flannel, I removed some of the length of the top sheet and attached it to the foot end of the top edge of the fitted sheet. This removes some of the bulk at the foot of the bed and keeps the sheets from getting tangled/ loosened since the mattress isn't very heavy to hold them in place.
For the comforter, we already had a rectangular shaped sleeping bag that we zipped open and use for a comforter. A full/queen sized blanket that we used in the summer was much to big.
