Bed sheets!!!!

As we await the construction and delivery of our 2018 25' FB Twin Serenity, I realize that these bed sizes are ......unique. Actually the new size of mattress twin in the 2018 is 34x80 instead of 34x78 but either way, WHERE DO I PURCHASE bed sheets that fit this odd size???? Thanks in advance.

We like a lot of folks started with fitted Airstream sheets that we purchased from http://www.ablifestyles.net/road-rea...FUS2wAodt0MAfg

Quality wise they were nice but I didn't like the fitted top sheet (the bottom loops around the end of the bed) and my wife did care for the style/ color options. We have since moved to standard twin sheets. The fit isn't 100% for the bottom sheet but we just fold that corner in and it works great. The top sheet isn't noticeable that it doesn't have the curve at all.

We just use regular queen sheets along with sheet straps. They keep the sheets snug in the corners and the bottom sheet stay snug on the bed. Like Arkfortycal, we just tuck in the corners. Works great!

We have ordered a 2018 International Signature 30RB with twins and have been working on buying supplies for its arrival sometime in August.
I found while looking for sheets, that there are different sizes of twin xl sheets, and that there are some that are 80" long. We've purchased these hoping they will work (I found them online at JCPenney on sale). Hopefully they will work, and you can locate some as well!

I also use regular fitted twin sheets and straps to hold them snug.

The new search function at the top works very well.

"sheets custom" reveals many earlier threads FYI:

https://www.google.com/search?q=shee...=airforums.com

Similar to Post #2 we have custom sheets and a mattress pad from ablifestyles, and the quality and fit are very good:

Sheet straps... You can get them at Walmart, Target, ect. I prefer the ones with metal clips vs. the ones with a rubber tab.

Amazon also had a huge selection. Agree with CRH the metal clips are the way to go as they are easier to install

Thanks all for your input. Never considered the sheet clips! Found a company on line called Custom Linens Direct and their prices were competitive. Ordered the EXACT sizes (34x80 with 8" depth) and hope its a home run. Funny but the AS store does not yet sell the 80" length, still selling the 78" ones!!!
