I got our garters at Walmart but Camping world sells them. The twin works great for us and it doesn't need to hang over the bed. We've been very comfortable in the corner bed.

Im in Florida on my first long trip in my 25' Safari, purchased last summer. Tidying the bed is a real pain, especially with a bad back. So last week I bought a Grip 'n Grab stick from Lowes, it's about 3' long and when you squeeze the handle it closes a pincer at the end. You can use it to straighten the pillows, tuck the bottom sheet down the side, pull the top sheet and covers tidily over the bed. It's light weight and very easy to use. Also good for pulling stuff from the far back of the outside storage lockers. It cost about $13.

Blankets for 19' Bambi

We just purchased a 19' 2008 Bambi. We already have custom sheets from airstream. My question: Is a there also a source for blankets that would easily fit the bed in the Bambi or does everyone just use whatever they can find?
Your thoughts? Thanks.
Clay

We just tuck ours under. It look nice and clean and fold over a top cover for looks and cold nights.

That does look neat! Quite like that bedspread...

Our 23' (same corner bed as the 19') came with a set of fitted sheets, but I admit that we just use double bedding and tuck away the excess.

Thanks. It's just a twin white duvet and a full size grey thin bedspread. I love the European hotels with only a duvet and no top sheet and use a regular fitted sheet with the suspenders.

Blmitsch5, I have exact same Bambi as u. It is new to me, came with just mattress. So far i cut a 4" foam topper. I have a matress cover and pad to go on. Do u think the airstream sheets with be deep enough on the sides for all that? I have a quilt and down for blankets. Looking at the awesome siding that is so cold to the touch now,,,,does the AS get really hot inside in Summer? Think camping in tuna can...that is how hot the teardrop would get. Can't wait to go on the road.sbb

I'm not sure if the sheets would be deep enough or not, we just have a regular fitted sheet and use the straps. The sides do get cold and on a 100+ day it can be warm in there but the AC keeps it around 20 degrees cooler than outside. At night it can get pretty cool in there! Have fun with your Bambi! We love ours.

Wow, guys, thank you so much! Especially blmitch, thanks for the awesome photo of the twin comforter on the full size Airstream bed. We just took delivery of a 2015 International Signature 19 after much planning and shopping, and the full/queen duvet cover and comforter we bought is RIDICULOUSLY large due to the lack of space around the bed. And the mattress fitted sheet straps?!? Amazing tip, I'm super excited! Ordering now.

Thanks, Blmitch5!

David

You're welcome! We added the memory foam topper and it's very comfortable. We also bought a summer weight down comforter from ikea and it's the perfect weight. Here in KS we have already switched back to the winter weight comforter.
Enjoy your new Bambi! 2015! Nice.

@blmitch5,

We just got back from our maiden voyage to Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta, and we had a blast. Found out some things about what we need to stock, etc. But the F/Q duvet and comforter were a massive PITA to make. As soon as we're recovered, we'll go buy a twin duvet and comforter.

For now we're loving the firmness of our mattress. In the past we've had problems with mattress toppers due to shifting and loose fitted sheets, but with the sheet straps we should be golden. We used to love down comforters until we got tired of the shedding, so we prefer wool comforters, as they breathe like down but don't shed.

David

P.S. I didn't actually order the straps like I said I was doing... too many options! Two long cross straps? Two long cross straps plus two long straight straps and 4 short short straps across? Arrrrgh!

Hi David
Where did you look to get the garter? Maybe there worth a try. Making the bed in our Bambi is the only thing I dislike about it! And I really don't like it (as in HATE IT)!

Look forward to hearing from you.

We sleep backwards in ours, with our heads towards the dinette. It puts your head into the warmer part of the trailer, makes it easier to climb out (slip out of the covers instead of having to fold them back, uncovering the other person), and makes it easier to make - the pillows are where you stand when you make it up instead of having to climb in over the covers. The only downside is that the reading lights are at your feet.

The large straps are available at bed bath and beyond. Since we added a memory foam mattress topper from Costco we don't need the straps. We cut it to fit and then used safety pins to attach the matters cover and when I make the bed for the trip I just pull up each from corner and pull the fitted sheet under it. Then the fridge side is easy, then I tuck the comforter from the top of the bed along the wall and the the side by the bathroom then hop out and finish the rest. It's not that bad but it takes time getting used to it. On travel days I do pretty much the same. I'm a bit OCD and it always looks nice and neat.
