I should have specified I was referring to a full length king at 80" rather than a short king at 75" Some models utilize a short king as well as a short queen. That's were the suspenders come into play. Attach them to the regular sized sheet under the mattress to keep the bottom sheet tight.

I'm getting a little old for mattress dancing so a regular queen is fine for the wife and I.

My Queen bought an egg shell foam pad(fine grade) and our standard size king fitted sheets work just fine. We also had a 4' feather bed on for a couple of years and loved it except the sheets would not stay on. Just a little too much stretch. The egg shell pad makes all the difference in quality of sleep for us.
By the way, GREAT COACH!!!!

This is a similar issue to when is a "Queen a Queen"? Many manufacturers claim they have a Queen bed, but if you look carefully it may actually be a "short queen". This was a major factor in our deciding on a Fleetwood rather than a Winnebago.

Sounds like you have the same issue; a sub-king sized bed. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>Winnebago makes many models with a full size queen and this year full size kings. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>I should have mentioned that we were looking in 2002. At the time Winnebago didn't have a Brave or Adventurer with a full sized queen.

The point of my post was that the "buyer must beware".
