I am in the process of looking for new bedding and curtains for our Trill. My question is this...Will full size bedding fit the back dinette that folds out into a bed? I know that queen size sheets are too big but am wondering how well full size sheets and comforters will fit.

We have a 16ft standard Scamp. The bed in the back is 49 inches wide. I use a twin jersey sheet set on the bed. It stays on better then the set I cut down to fit the bed. Some of our friends with fifth wheels use full or double size jersey sheets on the big bed. I think some of the blanket sizes that I use are twin-full. I keep changing things. Some times we use the sleeping bags. The jersey sheets will stay. I bought the set at Goodwill because I didn't know if they would work. They worked. The trick with blanket are to have enough to cover two people.

We actually prefer sleeping bags. Quick to turn dinette to bed and back again.
We're also backpackers and are very used to sleeping in sleeping bags.

I thought about using sleeping bags but they are too difficult to wash. Maybe it will just be a case of trial and error.

Too difficult to wash? Wash? Wash what? Wash sleeping bags? Why, I thought it was called "camping"... you never wash ANYTHING... it just wouldn't have that friendly odor if it was washed...

Yes, double/full sheets fit. A little big, but they work.

Oh, Roger! You crack me up! But the thought of not being able to wash something after we had slept on it a few weekends makes me want to .

When I got home tonight, I measured how wide the bed is. It is only 45 inches! My son's full size bed is 48 inches wide. How are we both going to fit on a bed that small?! I think we are going to have to set it all up tomorrow night and make sure we both fit. Although I have lost about 50 pounds, I am still quite fluffy.

In summer, we use a twin size fitted sheet, which fits perfectly over the cushions, and a full size sheet & cotton throw. In winter, we use a double sleeping bag.

Even though we are also "fluffy," we find the bed is cozy but not crowded!

I came up with a solution to this by accident.

I got several twin flat sheets to use as cushion covers. Easy to wash, dog hair brushes off easily. The sheets are "rolled" over the cushions, and tucked under. They look just fine.

I had a doggie crisis with my bag my last trip out, so I couldn't use it. I had a blanket and some extra twin sheets, so what I did was lay out the top sheet and blanket, and use the cushion sheets as, *drum roll* bottom sheets!

The top sheet and blanket (s) roll up like the bag does, and the arrangement is easily stashed like the bag in the back. The bedding is rolled lengthwise and looks like part of the furniture now.

I am going to keep it this way, unless I am doing really cold camping and the bag is needed for that added warmth. Having a real bed is nicer than the bag, but I really don't mind the bag either.

So is the back dinette in all 13' FG trailers only 45" wide? Or is it just smaller in the Trills?

The bed in our Compact Jr. is 70" X 70". Wall to wall bed; wide but not very long. Luckily I'm short for my age. Tom Trostel

No, some are actually 54", but those are mostly newer ones. Depends on the layout. Yes, I know the Casita Liberty has a really big bed available, but were talking most trailers. And, as Tom pointed out, the Compacts are also a little different.

My Casita has one that's 48". On the ends it narrows to about 46" but the middle is 48" as I recall. Before I switched it to a single bed, I used standard double sheets with fiber filled high loft mattress pads and it worked really well. The top sheet is a little large but you can tuck the extra on the back side. The fitted ones make a nice bed.
