Thank you Overlander! Stretch garters perfectly discribes my elastic with rubber thingies. They worked great and didn't need readjusting.

We also have a 19' Bambi...For ease in bed linens, Greg took a full size fitted sheet (with the elastic edges) and customized it to fit the mattress just to have the mattress covered...he uses a neutral color for this so it will go with any of our linens (beige or tan is good). Then he took two twin flat sheets and made a custom-shaped duvet-type cover (large pillow case affair) that holds a full-size feather bed leaving it open at the bottom...he didn't have to custom-shape the feather mattress itself...he just tucks inside the cover and the shape of the cover does the rest...that's what we sleep on top of...then we use a full flat sheet with a twin size comforter if weather calls for it...otherwise, just the sheet...then a throw on top of that for the 2 cocker spaniels...yes, they squeeze in, too... This set up makes it easy to fluff the feather bed and freshen the linens... He's got it down to a science. During the day, the bed pillows go into a double pillow sham and the comforter goes inside a second sham that rests behind the pillow sham and the bedspread goes on, with a couple of throw pillows to make it a lounge area... Pic below is the bed with the bed spread (black fleece), pillow sham, comforter sham behind that (and matching window valances and throw pillows). (This is our "Paradise" decor.

I know I will regret this but...........

Can you post a picture of these stretch garters, please. I am hoping that they are not some type of apparel. If so, please omit the live model and just show the garters.

Dave, they are in fact ladies' clothing items. Naturally I can't find any photos of them sans models, but a trip to WalMart should net you some...
May The Farce be with you...

Hi Hayley,

We use a regular deep pocket double mattress cover from Bed Bath and Beyond. I tried a couple before I found one that would stay on. The others, I returned unused. Having tried regular queen and double sheets and found them wanting, I purchasing the expensive AS bottom sheets for the Bambi bed and use regular double sheet on top. That works well. I have a summer and winter option for the bed cover. The summer one is a regular light cotton comforter that goes well with the Ocean Breeze interior. I made a duvet cover (like Greg) out of cotton batik and filled it with a down comforter for cool weather.

Greg says that they have bedding "garters" in linen stores as well...they work kinda like suspenders with clips to attach to the sheets...

Yup...it's definitely tight, but everyone has their "place" and if everyone stays there, all is well...it's when one of the dogs decides to move around that it gets interesting...its funning...one of the dogs, Annie, doesn't care who is touching her while she sleeps, but the other dog, Sadie, complains if anyone dares to touch her while she'd getting her beauty rest...especially if that someone is Annie.

Sleep Phase II - Travasack

Guess we were more spoiled by the always-ready bed in the SOB than we'd thought. Having a really stowable sleep solution has taken some more fiddling.

After trying out our new silk Sleepsack, well it's comfy, but just a little too lightweight. I think we should have tried the Travasack first, but one's on order now. The 1 inch memory foam pad is small enough to store, and just right to take the seams out of the gaucho. Combined with the 'customizable layers' of the Travasack, I'm hoping we're nearly there for total sleeping comfort.

Travasack is a Hit

Yep, that's what we needed. Great "modular" solution, comfy, stores well, and the colors work. Between my wife and I, that's a successful purchase.

Beware of sheets from the airstream store

I ordered the "600" (HA) Thread count Egyptian cotton twin sheet set and I am really appalled by the quality. They feel like rough muslin sheets AND cost a fortune. $200.00 for a ONE set of twin sheets!!! Stay clear of the airstream store for purchase of sheets!!!

OK, I'm enjoying this thread, but am puzzled by the term "glamping". What's up? Glamourcamping?

Get the AB Lifestyles ones. The quality is excellent and the prices reasonable.

We just opened the "home" today and made up the bed. We too have the 600 count sheets from AS. My wife loves them. (If she loves them so do I. It took me 27 years to figure that out!) Anyways, sorry to hear that you are unhappy with them. Also, it's nice that they fit the mattress so nicely.

BTW, who's going to tell us what "glamping" is?
