Comforter size for a 21' Escape

What size comforter or quilt do you use on the permanent bed in a 21'? Looks like I can get a twin size quilt to work without a lot of extra fabric hanging over that needs to be tucked in.

I used a twin on the way home from Chilliwack and it wasn't quite wide enough for two people to sleep under. (It did okay during the day.) I may try to alter one that's made for a full/double.

Also I measured this a.m. and the bed IS 80" long, which I'm thinking means altering a queen sized fitted sheet. Apparently a full/double is for a 75" mattress.

I purchase "full" sized sets and most normally work.

We use a queen size Travasak and it seems perfect in our 21'.

We are getting a 21' in 2016 & my research shows that the bed is XL. You can google & find all sizes of sheets can be ordered XL.

I do not think the bed is "King" or Xl check the website, it is closer to a double size or about 6" smaller than queen.

Bedding sheets, mattress pads, comforters, etc. are available in full size XL (meaning extra long). If you check the mattress size in the 21' the measurement you will find that it is full size, just extra long.

I'm super bummed that I won't be able to get a Select Comfort bed for the 21'. We were going to get it for the 5.0TA we originally wanted (until I realized the bed of the truck wouldn't be able to hold the stuff I need to haul to bazaars for vending). 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.

Greg on another thread said that they have the Spa Sensations from Walmart and really like it. It is very reasonably priced too
