One thing we might want to include is whether the bed is "square" or not. For example the Boler/clone bed is probably close to 6" narrower at the very ends, where the trailer rounds; whereas something like a Trillium bed width is nearly the same at mid-point and at the ends.

If you're going to have a wide point, the middle is probably the place for it, of course, but this might still be good information to include.

I actually hadn't notice the bit about no 5th wheel, that is just wrong.
I vote for their inclusion.
I have added it to the spreadsheet I am doing.

I am fairly confident that the Fiber Stream has the biggest bed if it is in the standard configuration, which I have not used before.
I seem to think [b]it is an actual King size or even slightly larger?

Fred will know this one for sure.
The 16' Fiber Stream and the 17' Casita Liberty Deluxe are very similar in floor plan and bed size.

My research has produced the following terms for bed sizes used in houses in the U.S:
  • [b]Description = Width x Length
  • COT = 24" x 72"
  • TWIN = 39" x 75"
  • THREE QUARTER = 48" × 75" (Obsolete)
  • FULL = 54" x 75"
  • QUEEN = 60" x 80"
  • KING = 76" x 80"
  • CALIFORNIA KING = 72" X 84"

By the above reference, the Fiber Stream and the Casita Liberty Deluxe have actual King size beds.

I speculate that since "Three Quarter" is an obsolete term, trailer manufacturers have assumed that anything larger than a "Twin" size, but smaller than a "Queen" size, can be called a "Full" size. Your mileage may vary.

[b]The originator of this post may have had valid reasons for excluding 5th Wheel type trailers from HIS inquiry;
such as a preference for a standard hitch, or a health concern about climbing up to a raised loft. Let's please respect that.
<Moderator Hat Off>

Returning to the scheduled discussion...

Notice the winking and smiling smilies. I was kinda just joshing around. I'm hoping that is an ok thing to do.

No wonder off-the-shelf sheets don't fit! I'm going to do this:

I would like to find a seamstress to make a fitted sheet for me? Of course would pay for it no doubt. Any ideas?

That's what that link was all about Ron. Those people have the patterns for the foam shape, etc. The link should give you contact info. From what I understand, you supply the sheets and they do the sewing. Kinda cool, you get the linens you want. 300 count anyone?

Now, back to your regularly scheduled topic!

Duh.. I thought those were from exiting patterns. My configuration is not like anyone has ever done before so I am sure I would have to send them my pattern.

I should read, huh?
