You're welcome. We zip two together to form a double. Only $80 each.....

Smile Bedding for 5.0

Thanks all for the great advice. I think we'll start out with sheets & comforter and see how that goes. So I've got to start looking for a colorful new quilt!!!

It's a polyester material that feels like the real thing.

Making the TA bed

We've found that having one of us in the loft and off to the side of the mattress allows the other one to pull the Escape issued mattress with memory-foam topper back a bout a foot from the camper nose, which makes it easier to install a fitted bottom sheet. Then the mattress can be pushed back and the rest of the tucking can be done from the foot. It's a bit awkward getting onto the mattress if it's pulled back first, but it can be done.

Once the bed is made and slept in, we don't worry much about daily maintenance. Just a smoothing out of the Newfoundland quilt works for us. We've installed a shortened fabric shower curtain across the back of the loft, which is usually pulled shut during the daytime. Out of sight, out of mind. This is camping and Martha Stewart seldom visits.

Different strokes... There is a Martha there every day in our trailer, that's why Martha is in charge of making the bed. Martha's cell mate is not so fussy.
