How do you make the corner bed?

My new mh has a rear corner bed which is difficult enough to get into at night. How do you make it look "made up"?

So far the best I havemanaged is to put the fitted sheet on the mattress topper only. That way I can fold it back, slip the fitted crners on and then flp the topper back flat. The top sheet and blankets arefolded neatly and stacked against the wall.

Here is a place to start:

TravaSac Single Blue 42" X 80"

I tried different searches for Travasac (the bed you don't have to make), but came up a little empty. I can sympathise with your situation. We had a Tioga 24-D with a corner bed and it was bad for my back.

Put on the fitted bottom sheet. Sew a pocket on the corner of each piece of bedding that goes into the corner of the RV. "Push" the bedding into place with a wooden dowel. After all this, spread a lightweight sleeping bag over the whole mess.

Maybe the real joy of RVing is it really doesn't matter if the bed is perfectly tidy. I like the dowel rod idea, thanks!

Corner Bed

I wish we had known about that "Travasack" when we had an Rv with a corner bed.

Two easy answers 1: old style elastic band sheet tighteners 2: new memory foam mattress ours is very comfortable and bends easy. Bend it, hook the sheets and blankets, then let it plop back in place. Plus if your bed has a corner cut off like mine you can cut the mattress with a large shears.

The very first thing I did after fighting the Tasmanian Devil of a corner bed mattress is buy a travasac. Now I just roll it up in the morning and un-roll it at night. Of course you can keep it made up all day, it is easy to handle, nice looking outfit.
I like the idea of the foam mattress, but finding the right density would be a big problem I fear. I need a firm mattress. I will admit that a travasac presents a bit of a problem if one person has to get up during the night. Be Aware!

I believe Travasack went out of business a couple of years ago. After a Class C with a corner bed we decided "never again!"

Here's a Marine Supply that may still have some in stock:

Product List - Category - Cabin & Galley / Bedding & Drapery / Travasak

They are spendy though.
