Bedding for guests

Ladies - what type of bedding do you store for the occational guest who would sleep either on the gaucho or the dinette? Sheets? I'm just wondering how much stuff to take with me for friends who might come to visit.

Thanks.

I take offense to you addressing your request to Ladies. I keep a set of sheets(in cotton bag)in the storage area at the end of our couch. I have an Army pouch liner as a blanket in a stuff bag.

One thing for sure would be memory foam - 3" would be good. The cushions are not comfortable. Good luck.

There is apparently something wrong with my sense of hospitality. The first thing that popped into my mind was a map to the nearest motel.

Never thought about linens for guests. Does that mean we need to carry extra towels also.? Guess we thought that the others would be in their own rig.

You're nicer than I am. I just thank them for dropping by and usher them out the door.

Not a Lady, but....

Hi, we carry extra sheets, blankets, and towels............................................ ............................, But those are for my wife and I. Guests need to stay in a motel or buy their own trailer. [or motorhome]

We are with you. How do you get drop by guests while camping? Perhaps they had too much Happpy hour and can't get back to their RV. haha, however at a wedding in Mexico, I tipped the waiter some $$$$$ and told him to keep them coming - and - he did. What a night.

We keep 2 sets of sheets for each bedding area. The best place to get good sheets at bargain prices is your local thrift/goodwill type store. There are plenty of good quality items to stock the trailer with that are gently used, but it won't break the bank. Keep in mind that they are for us when using the trailer, not for guests because we use ours for travel, not as a permanent location for our living quarters, as you will be doing. So it is understandable that you may be expecting guests at times.

Travasack

We had an elderly aunt and uncle stay with us for a few nights so we gave them the bed and we slept on our front sofa. What an eye opening experience! I would not wish that on any one. The conventional sheets kept sliding off and we would end up on the ultra- leather.

After that I coughed up the money for a queen size Travasack from Camping World. It gives some padding to the sofa and the sheets velco to the inside of the sleeping bag and stay in place. It will accomodate one or two people, and is easy to store.

I also carry a couple of extra pillows.

Happy Trails, 'shaker

My better half insists on carrying wayyyy too much stuff. However, this has allowed kids, grand kids, and other assorted guests to sleep reasonably comfy. We carry one twin size and one full size inflatable air mattresses, along with sheets, blankets and extra pillows. Most of it fits under our bed. I enjoy the company but inflating those mattresses is tough on an old man (I’m too cheap to buy an air pump). As the years have passed so has the desire of the grands to enjoy the adventure of sleeping over when we visit Nebraska—but we still carry the stuff, just in case. Oh, yes. I forgot the plastic sheets for the leaky kids. Gotta have those!

We love guests

We'd welcome guests for a few days, but since our 22'r does not have extra beds, we take along an extra room whenever there might be the chance that a friend or relative might visit for a few days -- they might fly in, for instance. Our spare room is a 7x7 tent with a double air mattress, and sheets. We also have enough blankets, down comforters, pillows and towels to share with guests. Might have to do the wash more frequently, but that is a small price to pay.

A queen Travasak is also our option....if fits neatly into a stuff bag that fits under on our twin beds, out of the way until needed for the grandkids, etc...

We also use twin Travasak's for our normal sleeping arrangements...as mentioned above, you can remove the sheets for washing easily...they are great, in our book!
