Rv king short mattress

We have a new 5th wheel with a RV Short king mattress 72 x 78 which is smaller than a standard king size mattress. How are you handling the issue of fitted bottom sheets, fitted mattress pad and possible foam mattress topper pad. Any information is appreciated.

We had almost the same problem with a king bed we purchased that was made in Belgium.

According to Wiki Pedia they are called Super Kings:Super king (occasionally incorrectly referred to in the UK as "queen")72" 78", also sold as 180 cm 200 cm.[3]Bed size - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I think my wife buys "deep pocket" or "deep sided sheets" for any big dept. store.

Sheets online at PreciousBedding.com
Super King Bed Sheets (72 x 78)

Mattress cover at Amazon:
Amazon.com: Mattress Pad Camper King size 72x80, 100% cotton face PLUSH: Home & Kitchen Yeah, they're a hair too long, but cut the topper a hair long too and it should be a good fit.

For the memory foam topper, buy a regular kingsize topper,
then cut it down to fit, then cover it with the mattress cover above.

Also note than many fabric shops will have the memory foam toppers in stock, and they may be less expensive than online plus shipping. But stay awake: most of the foam sold in fabric shops is the older high-density foam but not the newer memory foam.
