I have Memory Foam topper on my bunks as well as heated sunbeam mattress pads, regular bed sheets and a light-weight comforter....all from Walmart (less expensive). The spare bunk also has a heated mattress pad, and fitted/regular sheets. So much easier to wash than bedrolls/sleeping bags. Of course if the kids/grandkids want to use their sleeping bags, they can!

The DH and I use sleeping bags zipped together, but I line them with high thread count sheets (full) that I partially sew together at bottom and 4 feet up sides. That way I just wash the sheets after each trip and everything stays nice and clean.


You have just described the Travasak. I'm too lazy to do any sewing, so I just bought it ready made.

Two sleeping bags zipped together or a Travasak work weel in popups where you can not walk around the bed. If I had a TT, FW or MH with a walk around bed then I would use normal bed linen.

When just starting out you can save some money by just using whatever you already have.

Yes, I have seen the premade sheets for the double sleeping bags, but not in high thread count sheets. I know it is camping, but I'm into comfort and 1000 thread count sheets make me very happy

Our pup has 2 king beds. The kids use sleeping bags. We like to put a sheet down and tuck it in as best as we can. To cover up, we use another sheet and my large sleeping bag opened up like a quilt. If it gets too cold, the heater kicks in and we also have a couple of extra blankets just in case. Hey its camping and comfort rules - we don't put a lot of emphasis on a neat bed!

The Viking we had. Had a King bed. However it wasn't as large as the house King bed, and bigger than a queen. So, Yes there are time you need special beding, and it can be had at the dealer. Or, You can do as I did. Split the queen sheet, and add a pannel to make it fit.

Jersey (t-shirt fabric) sheets work well for odd-sized beds. Use the smaller size and stretch to fit. We use sheets, medium thread count (you can buy specialty sheets but only 250-thread count and 50 poly/50 cotton YUK!). I bought full-sized bottom sheets, cut them down a bit, and use twin-sized top sheets (I bought individuals at Wal-Mart in a higher thread count and 100% cotton). Our beds are 48 inches wide, not quite a full but larger than a twin.

All of us have "walk around beds." DW and I make our beds by putting everything together before we bungee the bed side down. That way we can reach 3 sides and 50 percent of the 4th. You Starcraft owners (and maybe others) have the advantage of unzipping the bunk sides from the main walls and flipping them onto the top of the bunk ends while you make up beds.
