I am a newbie at RVing, so I hope this is not a dumb question. My Thor a Outlaw 29h did not come with any bedding and my wife and I are going away next weekend, so I need to get some. We will be sleeping in the 54 by 74 inch cab over bunk which has a foam mattress and also a removable piece for easy access to the cab. My question is: what kind of bedding should I get? Are fitted sheets available in this size? Sleeping bags? Any advice will be gratefully received.

Access to the bunk is difficult, so I bought a ladder which I hope will stay put overnight.

We ordered our 5th wheel and had them credit us for the bedding. We also asked for a neutral window treatment for the bedroom so we would be able to use any bedding design of our choosing.

The bed and bedding were the first things to get dispatched when we brought the MH home for the first time. "Ick," was our general train-of-thought. \ken

We didn't like the bedcover that came with our HR because it had to be dry cleaned. It is now in a spacesaver bag in the s/b and we use a quilt. We also use standard queen sheets on the "short" queen rv bed and use diaper pins at the foot of the bed to "reconfigure" the fitted sheet. Keeping the orig bedcover because it matches the fabric on the headboard (in case we ever sell the RV).

Thanks everyone for the comments and great ideas. We are waiting for ours to be delivered so I have some time to start looking around.

We've used a travasak on our top bunk when we had our Southwind. It can be a little pricey but it has sheets attached and is like a sleeping bag only bigger, folds up quick and easy, no muss no fuss. Check camping world.

We bought two Travasaks when we bought our previous coach, a Class C. One for the Queen size bed and one for the queen size cabover. Making up both beds took only about 3 mins and looked very tidy during the day. Now for our Class A, which still has a Queen bed, we still use a Travasak. The second one is stored under our bed to use on the queen size hideaway.
The original bedding is stored in the S&B.

Home Away from Home

Since our motor home is our home I made a quilt to make it feel more like home. The cover that came with the motor home is in the basement of the house and so are all the throw pillows. I love a bed to crawl into that is comfortable and beautiful. Hate how everything matches!

The wife does the bag and tag and stores it away. We normally go for a larger, heavier and better quality.

We've used a Mickey Mouse comforter for years. It has seen better days, but we're not picky, and it does the job of warming us on nights when a blanket is just not enough. On slightly warmer nights, it is folded at the foot of the bed and usually winds up on the floor before morning.
