I am sitting in bed now on the AB Lifestyles sheets and blanket and can state they fit so well, do not pull out at the bottom, and feel so good. I can see no reason to buy anyone else's bed linens.

Happily, I sew. I started with a standard Queen mattress pad and pocketed the corners to fit the one curved edge (head end) and left the square corners to fit the other on a 60x75" mattress - 30 minutes max. I followed that with a set of regular, 400 thread count Queen sheets at BB&Beyond that had the full edge, elastic fitting bottom to cover the pad. Good to go!

Thanks for the responses! We ended up purchasing the AB Lifestyle sheets. They fit extremely well. Not quite as smooth / soft as we would like, but we are quite happy. Plus, the customer service was great. Our first trip in our new Airstream was a huge success, and thanks to all of you, it was very comfortable!

We use regular queens, but probably going to AB sheets

I am looking at the twin size sheets, blankets and waterproof mattress pads from AB. Checked the AS store and they are quite pricey. Any comments?

One more recommendation for AB lifestyle sheets. Sheets fit perfectly.

I just got all that from AB but haven't used them yet. Very good quality on the sheets and mattress cover (not the waterproof one). The polartec blanket is thick and looks warm, but I think it's an older or lower version polartec as it feels a lot more synthetic than other polartec stuff I have.

I got a mattress cover from AS a few years back and it was much lower quality than this one from AB.

Having slept a few nights, some a bit restless, I have found that even when I pull everything out of place the fitted end makes it so easy to make up the bed.

Previously I had to remove everything, miter the corners, make adjustments, but with the new sheets, blanket it is a quick tug and everything is back in place.

From the posts, I'm going with the AB sheets and mattress pads. I can't sew a stitch and we don't want to wrestle with sheets every morning. Thanks, let you know what we think

I just got my AS out of storage and tried my new sheets from AB Lifestyles.

TAKE NOTICE: the fitted sheet will not work if you have a mattress topper on the bed. However if you tell them at the time of order that you use a topper they will alter to fit for a $10 charge.

I found this all out the hard way as they don't talk about the alteration on the web site, they told me when I was trying to resolve my problem.

I'm not putting all the blame on them, I should have thought about it- or tried fitting the sheets before they were washed.

The mattress cover, top sheet and blanket do fit- it's only the bottom sheet you have to check.

I second the vote for AB Lifestiles. They know all about Airstreams. Calling them was easier for me rather then guess online. Take a messurment of your bed and give them a jingle.
