Great trailer bedding

Okay so I live in the Great White North and it gets cold at night. We found a great sheet set for the trailer. They are fleece and are very comfortable and WARM! They are Brunswick Sheets made in New Brunswick. The bottom sheets have elastic all they way around and stay put. You crawl into bed and they are warm in minutes. My mother sent us out a set a few years back but we found them too warm for the house but they are great in the trailer on these col to cold nights.Brunswick Sheets

Sounds wonderful. Does anyone have any tricks for getting the sheets on the bed when it is surrounded on three sides?

We have a modified IKEA Futon queen mattress in our Hunter and, as it folds in the middle. we just pull the back half up, hook the sheets in place and push it back down.

As to making the bed when 3 sides aren't available....I must admit that I do alot of grunting, bending, stretching and....cursing.

But---in the end, the bed gets made and it's all good.

I have found that the best bedding in our trailer is sleeping bags. Simple bed making and putting away.

After much frustration, I gave up on fitted sheets. I just use two flat sheets and tuck them in around the edges at night as I go the bed.

Our memory foam topper has a hand made fitted sheet. The sheet is in place automatically when the topper is deployed. the convenience of a sleeping bag with the comfort of a real bed!

I agree with you, Bryon, everything else I've tried just doesn't work for me. When I had a truck camper it was the same, tried sheets at first then finally got a couple sleeping bags.

Easiest way to make a trailer bed is to sew the flat sheet to the fitted sheet at the bottom edge and 6" up the sides at the bottom two corners. Then to make the bed: roll forward the bottom back corner of the mattress and put on the corner of the fitted sheet. Repeat with the other bottom corner. Then slip on the top two corners. Viola! Sheets are on and in perfect position. I've been doing it with my 4 x 8' teardrop trailer for nine years. Soon to be in a 13' Scamp!!

It is a lot of laying on the bed and poking sheets behind and under and I can't say I enjoy it. But, since I leave the dinette set up as a bed all the time I only have to do it once for each trip. I can see where it would get pretty old doing it every day though.


I have flannel sheets and a heavy quilt for winter use and regular sheets and a thin comforter for summer use. Sometimes correctly guessing which to put on for Fall or Spring trips can be a challenge.


As an aside, I found a piece of foam bed topper and my daughter and I cut it down for her upper bunk in the front of the Scamp. She attends a sewing class and she and the instructor made a zippered cover for the piece of foam last Saturday. The Instructor has ordered (Pink) sheet material and she and my daughter are going to make a custom fitted set of sheets for the front upper bunk. My daughter does not like a sleeping bag, so I am letting her put her labor (and my $$$) where her mouth is.

I used a fat queen size flannel sheet sewn up one side to make a 'pillow case' for the memory foam. It goes on and stays there till the sheet needs washing (on a long trip I turned the whole thing over so I slept on the clean side). I have a home made quilt, sleeping bags of various weights and a top flannel sheet to choose from for a top cover depending on the time of year.


Those fleece sheets would be comfy and warm I bet. Maybe too warm for me as fleece makes me feel sweaty.
