Some one here had mentioned using TWIN - JERSEY sheets on the rear bed of the Casita or Scamp. My question is-----Do jersey sheets fit better than regular sheets? I have never owned Jersey sheets, but if they streach, or fit better for some reason, I am willing to buy them. I saw them at walmart this weekend for about $20.00 a set.
What do you use, twin or double on that rear bed? Do Jersey sheets fit better?
Opinions please.
Thanks

If you go here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bed_sizes#Bed_sizes

You will find more than you care to know about bed sizes.

It seems to me that many egg camper beds would use the "Three Quarter" size.

They seem to be available online at:

http://www.threequartersheets.com/

or again:

Happy shopping.

But after looking at the prices, you could probably cut down a full sheet to fit if you have a sewing machine. A fitted sheet would be more difficult.

Personally, I don't like jersey sheets, but I love bamboo knit sheets that look similar, but feel extremely soft. My daughter found them at Bed, Bath & Beyond, I think. I've seen them at other big box stores, as well. They stretch well, wash well, don't shrink, and don't pill. Oh, and made from bamboo, they're "green", too.

Karalyn, We tried a set of jersey sheets and while they stretch and fit nicely, people do not slide on the material, which makes it a bit difficult for the person sleeping on the back side of the 'Egg'! Vi

The beds are a little wider than a twin and narrower than a double.

I find that double sheet work well. The fitted bottom goes on nicely with the excess width just tucked in the back. The top sheet is just tossed on the top, I don't like it tucked in.

I use jersey double sheets in the Boler and like Joy just tuck the extra in. I like them...... though I know some people don't care for how they feel.

Thanks for all the information. I have been useing double flat sheets tucked in for the bottom and a twin on top with a twin comforter on top for a bed spread.
If I switch to jersey will the bottom sheet fit better when I slide in and out of bed, or will I take it with me so to speak?
