    Does anyone know the exact sizes of double, queen and king-size regular bed sheets? I want to see if I can match them up with my pup bed sizes to buy sheets. The bunks are 48x77 and 66x77.

    Sizes on popups are not the same as regular beds (see chart below). The best thing I have found, if you can't sew, is to buy jersey (t-shirt) sheets a size smaller. They have enough stretch to fit well and no worries. If you can sew a straight stitch, taking the closest regular but larger size fitted sheets, removing the elastic, opening up the corners, and resewing corners and elastic is the ULTIMATE solution. Use the next smallest flat sheet on top. You can also take the next smallest size flat sheet, cut the correct size corners, sew, and add elastic.

    Twin Extra Long Mattress Size 39" w x 80" l
    Full Mattress Size 54" w x 75" l
    Full Extra Long Mattress 54" w x 80" l
    Queen Mattress Size 60" w x 80" l
    Queen Split Mattress 60" w x 80" l or Two 30" x 80"
    King Mattress Size 76" w x 80" l
    California/Western King Mattress 72" w x 84" l

    We have always just take larger flat sheets and tucked them under.

    A word to the wise - don't use flannel sheets in your PUP. The are like humidity sponges and feel very damp until your body heat dries 'em out.

    So glad you mentioned that as I was going to take flannel sheets for early camping days! Now I know better.

    I am just the opposite, I love flannel sheets for camping; especially when it is 20 degrees outside at night! I use a pretty thick mattress pad on our bed and then flannel sheets on that. The humidity around here is only about 20 to 40 percent in the winter, really dry, so maybe that is why we don't have that problem.

    I think I will be using regular sheets, too. The price of pup sheets is way too much. I am just wondering whether the king-size fitted sheet or the king-size flat sheet is best for covering the mattress in the 66x77 bunk bed. Perhaps the flat sheet is best because the good amount of tuck will help the sheet stay on and will be very easy to remove.
