replacing the sofa with a daybed?

After a week long trip, I've decided I absolutly have to replace the lumpy sleep sofa. I have 35 inches of space without blocking the wall cubbys and a twin mattress is 39 inches wide. I would use bolsters to make it comfortable for seating. One option is to purchase a truck mattress that does come in a 35x75 size but only comes in firm when I like a softer mattress. The other is to cut into the wall shelf under the front window and see if I can steal a few inches from there. Does anyone know If this is possible? It would be great to use regular twin sheets but don't want to lose precious floor space.

You can always pad the trucker mattress with a foam topper or something like that to make it softer. Regular twin sheets might be a little big but you can probably tuck them and make them work. Or maybe get a twin-sized stacking foam mattress set from overstock.com and trim it to the size you need it.

Thanks Liz, never thought of that option. Still have the trusty electric knife which has never been used for actual food. I guess I could sew sheets to fit, and curtains to match LOL. Why not, I wouldn't be happy if I didn't have a project.

If the sheets are only a couple or four inches too big in either direction, you can just tuck the fitted sheet extra and you'll have a generous fit with the flat sheet. That's what we're doing with the queen-sized sheets on our RV queen sized mattress (although with a 11" mattress, a thick padded cover, and a wool mattress pad, the fit is pretty snug).

You can also use these to make your sheets fit your mattress; they have them at K-mart, as well as Amazon. I use them and they work great.

Thanks, just painted the cabinets and walls a few weeks ago, they were just ugly paneling. Also tiled the floor. Still have a bit left to do but honestly enjoy the remodeling as much as the camping.
