This post is dedicated to anyone who has struggled to find sheets that actually fit their RV mattress correctly! (Yes, it really is a challenge!) Check out this list of short queen sheet sets that should fit standard RV mattresses.
One of the very first blog posts that we wrote for this site was how to upgrade your RV mattress. That’s probably because upgrading our mattress was one of the first (and one of the best) upgrades that we made to our (then) new camper. Night after sleepless night we would wake up with aching backs and an overall feeling of exhaustion. This was because our factory-issued mattress was the absolute pits. It was comprised of a cheap plastic filler material that I’d imagine would be similar to sleeping on a pile of soda bottles. (p.s. That blog post remains one of our top visited posts of all time. If you have not yet given it a read, you should!)
Once you decide that a mattress upgrade is the way to go, you will have to choose the best RV mattress for you. (Yes, another very popular post on this site!)
After you grab a new mattress, it’s time to pick a sheet set.
Regular Sheets Will Not Fit an RV Mattress
When your new mattress arrives, your first thought might be to grab a spare sheet set from your closet at home.
However the majority of camper mattresses (or perhaps the one you just bought) are not standard queen-sized mattresses. Most RV mattresses are short queen sized mattresses. These mattresses are a bit shorter than standard queen mattresses. This is what causes your sheets not to fit properly. If you use a full sized sheet set, you will have to tug and stretch the fitted sheet over the mattress and it will likely pull off the mattress overnight. If you use a queen sized sheet set, it will be too big and will potentially also pull off mid-slumber.
This is frustrating, but knowing is half the battle.
