fitted sheets for trailer mattresses

Has anyone bought sheets for the Bambi sport - 22 ft. trailer? The bed in front has a curved mattress, following curve of trailer. Guess you could modify fitted sheets by taking them in on the sewing machine. Any thoughts? We are new Airstream owners.

Have you looked at the Airstream store online, we got some for our EB from there. They are expensive but fit the curve.

Welcome

We have sheets from AB Lifestyles, which fit the curve. They are very good linens for the money.

Sheet with new AS?

Does a new AS trailer come with a set of fitted sheets? Blankets? I see the bedspreads in the pictures of new ones but I wonder what other linens are included.

Our 20's mattress has double radius corners. We purchased sheets from airstream.com. They fit nicely. Quality product.

BUT, they are expensive, and shipping took forever. The website warns "expect 3-4 week delivery". They aren't kidding. Ours took over a month.

Next time I will try out the sheets from AB Lifestyles, or maybe just find someone local who can do the alterations.

Since we think we are camping we use sleeping bags and don't worry about fitted sheets.

We have the curved mattress in our 27'FB and I am just using my regular queen fitted sheets and it works just fine. Doesn't come sliding off. I did buy a set of sheet straps from Bed, Bath and Beyond for "just in case" but, have never had to use them.

Crisen and teagues:

Do the Airstream sheets have a seam between the top side and the edges of the fitted bottom sheet? I have read from others that they do but I'm wondering if it is only with some styles. The other complaint that I read with the Airstream top sheet is that it is very short. Love to have comments on this since I want to get sheets ordered soon for our new unit, especially with the long wait times.

I can't image using a sleeping bag. After paying the big bucks for a new Airstream I need to be glamping with high thread count cotton sheets.

I'll have to check with the "Boss" as to your question on the seam, she would know. (Edit, she says as she remembers they do have a seam but she will look at ours tonight.) As to the length, yes the top sheet seems shorter than it could/should be. However it is not a lot shorter, kind of depends on how you want to make up the bed. Pat always makes beds with the sheet folded back over the top of any blanket and it is short for this. If you don't do this extra fold it would probably be ok. She is going to sew on a strip on the bottom of the top sheet to extend it for this.

I am not sure on the thread count, does it say on the website. I know the Eddie Bauer came with one set of sheets and they were less thread count than the ones you buy so Pat is going to order a second set.

New trailers come with the bedspreads and some small, decorative matching pillows, but no blankets, sheets, or mattress pads.

Ran out to the trailer real quick, made the bed, and sure enough, there is a seam all the way around where the top of the fitted sheet meets the sides. We have had those sheets for almost two years and I never noticed that before.

I have the Airstream sheets and they do have the seam you mentioned. This is our first trip out with them and I'm somewhat dissapointed to tell you the truth. The bottom sheet doesn't fit snugly, like I like and the top sheet is too short and I find it comes untucked at the bottom druing the night. They feel good though.

EB models come with fitted sheets, duvet cover, comforter, and pillows ... many, many pillows.

We also broke down and purchased the sheets from Airstream. I am extremely disappointed. First of all, I could have purchased a set and altered them and they would have fit better. Yes, indeed the fit on the bottom sheet is not snug and they slip and slide around. When I first tried them on the bed, I thought "well they might shrink enough to fit". Not so lucky! The seam business is a short-cut to fitting the sheet correctly. Also, mine have pilled and for such a high quality fabric I am very surprised. I would certainly not pay the price for them again and would simply use the little straps from BB&B (or better yet the old "mitten keepers" from my kids...or make my own out of a spare flat sheet!
