    I did a search on here and the answers really varied so I wanted to throw this one out there again!

    What sizes of bedding should I get for a king sized bed?

    I am thinking... Queen sized sheets with a full sized comforter or quilt. What do you all think?

    I/we have king size beds. Our camper came with bedding sets from Camping World. They say king size and the sheets are way too big for our king size bed. I'm ready to just buy sleeping bags for hubby and I, but not sure he'll go for that. I would be interested in hearing what others say.

    I like two extra large Coleman sleeping bags zipped to make one big bag. We moved to this after years of hauling sheets and blankets around.

    We just use a set of flat sheets and a couple of fleece blankets. There are two sleeping bags stored in the PUP in case it gets too chilly for fleece.

    I'm using a set of inexpensive, ($20.00) flannel sheets from Target, king sized, and a double size comforter. We actually put both mattresses on the one bed and used the other bed space as shelf storage, since there was only the 2 of us. First outing in May brought along a velux blanket, again, double size, and only used it 1 night.

    I always prefer the layered approach so that you don't end up freezing, or roasting

    we got 2 sets of king sheets with the Pup (i suspect they're actually even coleman sheets)

    then a thin flannel blanket, and a sleeping bag on top of that

    Like mommadukes, fitted Queen Flannel or Jersey sheets both work well enough. We then just use old quilts and blankets of any size for cover-up.

    I ordered queen flannel sheets and a full/queen comforter. I have some random full sized blankets I will pack too. I will take some pics and let you all know how it works out!

    We use queen fitted sheetsthat are made for the extra deep mattresses. They work very well. We also use a queen size comforter. The comforter is just a little too large, but not so big it won't work. I would suggest measuring the bunk and then check out the measurements posted on the bedding packaging rather than going by the queen, king etc. We also leave the sheets on the bed when we fold everything up. The comforters go back into the plastic bags they came in and store in the aisle(the bags have a zipper and a handle).

    We have one king bed, and one double. I bought at Family Dollar, 1 set of king sheets. Ya know from the dollar store they aren't as big as from a good bedding store. The fitted is a little big, not much, just tuck in a little better. Now, we carry a queen electric blanket when weather is cold. We carry a queen quilt, and a couple of velux blankets for both beds. Of course we don't use double bed unless we have DGK's with us. We make sure we stay cool, as needed, or warm as needed. Love our pup, and love camping.

    We have double size contour sheet for the double, and twin for the twin, and they are not TOO TOO big...

    I use these like a bedspread over the double sleeping bag so that the little dog's outdoor grubby stuff doesn't get into our bag!

    We dry camp and don't use electric blanket.

    Our PUP came with 2 king size air mattresses that we have underneath the mattress so regular king size sheets work well for us. The fitted sheet fits perfectly over the camper mattress and the air mattress.
