RV beds

Our 5th wheel bed is a pain to make up. Do any of you use a washable queen sleeping bag in place of sheets and blankets?

I don't know how your bed is configured but making the bed is easier with two people. The head of our mattress is in the slide with little space on either side. With one of us on each side of the mattress, we pull the mattress back a few inches and pull the fitted bottom sheet over both upper corners, then push it back forward and pull the other two corners over the lower end of the mattress. The top sheet (and blanket if needed) is a cinch once the fitted sheet is taken care of.

Making the bed by yourself is a royal pain, so much easier with two people. It only took once to truly convince the DW of that! It goes pretty quickly with help. We have just gotten into the habit of biting the bullet and doing it first thing in the morning. We even made ours a little more difficult by switching the mattress to a standard pretty quickly en rather than the shorty RV queen. BUT we believe well worth it. plus we put a mattress topper on it from nomorerack.com and sleep very well.
Pleasant dreams!

We also pull the mattress down when we change the sheets. Would not use a sleeping bag.....hated them when I had to use them.

Maybe the problem is it has a short Queen and the sheets from a regular Queen make it even harder. If that's the problem, someone on here posted a place that sells short Queen sheets. Just saying......

We started sleeping on top of the bed spread. We have our own blankets to sleep under. Then just fold them up when we get up. That way the bed is always made up.

We have a queen size Travasak that we got at Camping World. Has velcro sheets and fairly easy to take out and replace after washing but I would say it takes more time than regular sheets, but it is so easy to make the bed and it is now again available at Camping World.
