Sheets for the '73 Overlander?

Need sheets. The foam mattresses are measuring 32" x 75" x 6". Any place I can buy a few sheet sets without the installment plan?

Sheets on the cheap!

Both Wal*Mart and Target sell twin XL sheet sets which might work for you. My twins have the radius corners and we are adapting some of these to fit. I replaced the 43 year old foam mattresses with inner spring ones from newer model A/S trailers. It was a lot of work to re-size the shorter one by the entrance door but well worth it for the added comfort. Also foam tends to make me sweat! So all the sheets we will use will be "off the shelf" until we see how we like them. In the future we may get some of the more expensive ones from A/S but for now we will make do. Ed

I just used regular twin sized fitted and flat sheets and tucked them in on our '73 Safari (same size foam as yours I think). They fit fine. The comforter is pictured.

I use Target's knitted Twin size for my larger-than-twin bed at home and on my (not-so-double double in the Overlander.

Using flat twin size is another good idea!

Think I might try these (34x75). I know there a bit wider, but should allow for a down or memory foam pad. Camper Bunk 34x75 Percale Sheet Set White with Azure Blue Trim: Kitchen & Dining
