Thanks everyone for the feedback. It sounds like I'll pass on the Airstream ones.

We have a 2008 25FB Classic with twin beds to accommodate my husband's long legs. I purchased a set of queen sheets and divided the fitted and flat sheet in half. It was easy to sew a new seam on the flat sheets and the fitted only needed to have elastic added to one side seam. The set came with two pillow cases so we both have a nice matching case for our bunk. Purchased a regular twin set for my son's bed which is the sofa. Everything matches the interior colors. Works great and didn't break the bank.

The Airstream factory mattress is 7" thick. Since we already had the sheets on order from from Airstream for their mattress, we could only order a custom 8" mattress (around $635) cut per the Airstream drawing number 703698 titled "Mattress 60 x 75 Queen 'B'" for our 25FB International.

The Rocky Mountain Mattress Company can also make custom sheets to fit their and other's custom mattresses. They also have custom memory foam pillows (about $149 per pair). I was amazed at how much better I slept using one of the memory foam pillows than with a regular pillow.


We ordered the highest thread count sheets and matching pillow cases from Airstream (they are very proud of these sheets per the pricing) and they finally arrived at the end of their stated time frame. They fit the 8" mattress without a lot of slop. We washed them before the first use and they were warm and cozy. We found that the sheets and the Airstream supplied bed cover were enough for warmth when the trailer cooled down to about 60 degrees at night.

We have a very heavy Pendelton queen sized wool blanket for cooler adventures.

The sheets used for our twin bunks were KING SIZE not queen as I incorrectly stated in my previous post.

For the rear twins in our 2004 Classic, I purchased twin x-long fitted sheets from The Company Store that were made with elastic all the way around the entire sheet. This elastic keeps the sheet fairly taut on the curved mattress with no need for alterations. It also provides room for the three inch foam toppers that I made by cutting in half a king size topper purchased at Costco. (Thanks to other posts on this forum for that idea...the electric knife worked great to cut the foam). I don't think this would work as well were there elastic only at the top and bottom of the sheet, as is true for most fitted sheets. I also have a set of the airstream factory sheets that the PO used. They are hard to fit over the toppers. I purchased matching top sheets in the regular twin size.

Just like a boat. Difficult to find sheets that actually fit. I have the same problem with my new Cloud. I just bought Queen sheets and they kind of fit.

When using regular sheets I use some elastic mattress suspenders under and across the mattress to pull up any slack in size of the fitted sheet, keeps it nicely taunt and in place.

The easiest by far though is to use the sleep systems, i.e. bags with removable velcro or envelope sheets.

Full XL sheets work very well on the 22FB. Here are the ones I bought from Amazon, which fit beautifully. For the rounded corners, I just put suspenders on the bottom side (a tip from another Airstreamer).

They are fabulous and much cheaper than AB Lifestyles or AS.

We had a sheet sizing problem with our 20 and hoped in our new 2014 25FB it would be a bit better fit with queen sheets. Tried the elastic with clips and was OK but I just picked up an Item from Bed Bath and Beyond that fits the sheets to the seam on the bottom edge by sliding over the sheet and the seam. Makes the bottom sheet nice and snug.Comes 4 to a pack.
