    We have just purchased a Jayco Eagle and it has king size beds. I understand from the seller that king size sheets really don't fit right because of the deep corners. Would it be best to get queen size fitted sheets or try to just use flat sheets? Also, would you maybe just use a full / queen comforter?

    Also, what do you use for the table and couch that make into beds?

    We will be bringing it home next weekend and want to be prepared as possible.

    Thanks for your help!!

    Double bed sheets fit fine on our"queen" size side. I use the fitted and the flat and a double bed comforter. Our table and couch fits a twin bed sheet set and comforter. Ours is alot older than yours- What I did was pop it up and measure the beds-took the numbers to walmart and read the packages of sheets for size. Good luck- have fun!

    We just use flat sheets and tuck them under, but then we do the same thing at home, too. We keep top and bottom sheets and a lightweight fleece blanket along with a sleeping bag that can be opened and used as a comforter. We rarely need anything more than the sheets and fleece.

    Can't help on the dinette. We've never used it as a bed but flat sheets would work well.

    somebody told me here on the forum that Queen sized "t shirt" material sheets would fit the matress...they are stretchy so they fit tight...That is what we are going to try

    Can't tell you on the sheets as our bed is just a double :( but I as for the comforter, I would recommend going a size smaller. It seems like if you go the size of your bed, you wind up with a TON of extra material to deal with.

    As for the dinette, we just use a flat sheet tucked under and we've never had any problem.
