RV Queen sheets and linens, high thread count

I am having a hard time find high thread count sheets and quality fitted mattress pad for an RV queen. I have found 300 or less thread count, but I want the highest I can get. Yes, I know they are more expensive. Any ideas/suggestions?

Have you measured your mattress to be sure of the size?
Twin Mattress Size (Single)
: 39" x 75"Full Mattress Size (Double): 54" x 75"
Long Twin Mattress Size: 36" x 80" Most beds in college dorms have long twin mattresses
Queen Mattress Size: 60" x 80"
King Mattress: 76" x 80"
California King Mattress Size: 72" x 84"


If you mattress is a "normal" size than you can go where ever you want to buy sheets for what ever price you want to spend. If your mattress is shorter than you can either buy special RV size sheets OR you can get "normal" size sheets and either modify or use something like Sheet Straps to keep them on the mattress. We got a set from Kmart but you can get something like them just about anywhere.

We have a memory foam mattress topper on our RV Queen bed, and with the added inches from the topper, we use regular high thread count queen size sheets with no modifications. They stay put just fine.

And there's more to quality than thread count. The past few years, manufacturers have been bending the definition of thread count to sometimes sell inferior products. Here's a link to a buying guide:

If you get to the Flea Market in Okeechobee, Fl. They have 600-800 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets for sale. Pretty cheap also. Very smooth... Good luck.

The short queen (sometimes called a RV queen) is 60X74.

We use the regular queen on a short queen bed and use the suspender type straps. They work fine.

In case there was confusion, the mattress sizes I gave are for normal mattress sizes. If the mattress is not that size then it could be any size. That is why I suggested to measure it to see and to make sure of the size. The other thing that could throw off the size is if you happen to have a taller mattress like a pillow top mattress, if that's the case then getting deep pocket sheets is the way to go.

On a side note - More and more RV manufactures now are putting in normal sizes so that it's not that much a hassle for most anymore.

Hot Sheets

Assume you know the higher the thread count the more sheet becomes a blanket. Use 900 in the summer and you will sweat to death.
