Axis/Vegas RVs... Making the bed

I don't know if any threads have touched on this subject, but after getting home from the dealer, and stripping the bed of the 'display only' bedding and pillows, what type of bedding has everyone gone with? Do you find making the bed in the limited space of these models to be somewhat hard?
On our Vegas 25.3, the bed is one that folds in half when we bring in the slide. I've added to it a memory foam 4" topper, and hoo boy! is it comphy! BUT, straightening the bedding and making the bed tends to be a chore, and when folding up the bed to move on usually makes the bedding fall off from the foot of the bed, forcing one to re-make it once you unfold the bed.
Well, no more! I've (finally) gotten up to speed in this department and ordered my set of Beddy's Bedding, and I don't know how we lived without it for this long! Zippered bedding is da bomb! and this particular brand is of a very good quality and oh-so-soft. The queen-sized sheets/blanket/bedspread came with 2 pillow shams and 2 coordinating pillow cases. The best part is that the bedding stays put, even when the bed is folded, and making the bed is little more than getting out and zipping up the sides.
There are a few youtube videos online for this brand, but here's mine!

Thanks. We'll look into this. Hadn't heard or read of one before.

Great idea. These have been around for a long time, but not real popular because of the cost. Thanks for sharing.

The spousal unit does upholstery work as a barter.
I think she's goofy and it's a lot of work, but she likes it.
The cost on those beddy beds is ridiculous.
But
We'll not only have a pair soon enough, bespoke by her, but we'll have a pattern available to all who does the twin twin thing in a 24.1.

Stand by.

We also have a bedroom slide with a queen(ish) bed that folds more or less in half when you slide the room in to travel. We found the bed was too hard for our taste so we put on a foam topper (huge difference!), fitted and flat sheet and a duvet. There’s not really enough room to walk around the bed when making it, so making the bed means crawling around on the mattress a lot. The biggest issue is that the foam topper tends to shift down toward the foot of the bed (because we have to scoot off the foot of the bed to get out) and I have to shove the foamie back up daily. Which is awkward when there’s a fitted sheet on top of it...kind of have to unmake and remake the bed each day.

I would love any suggestions that would help with this!

We use a big sheet of the corrugated plastic drawer liner that they use under rugs under the folding bed in our Vegas 25.2. It limits the sliding, which got even worse when we added a 5" foam between the head of the mattress and the wall. I really appreciate having the extra mattress length.

Great idea. I may try my hand at making these.
They are a little pricey and I’d probably use better materials than they do.
Thanks

I considered making my own after finding a youtube video instruction on it, but in the interest of time (projects in our household tend to stretch into years.) and cost (I can do anything... I just can't do it as inexpensively as they can!), ordering it from Beddy's was my best option. The quality, as it turns out, is VERY good! And when you factor in all the pieces you get (sheets/blanket/comforter/shams/pillow cases), the cost is very reasonable, even though pricey.

As soon as we got our Vegas home I purchased Beddys bedding. Yes, it was expensive, but so much easier to make the twin beds! It made something that was a complete pain in the derrière become a breeze.

Absolutely correct.
I put a qualifier into my comment on the price, and I may have needed to be more clear for those who thought I meant everyone;

If you don't have quilting ability and equipment, buy Beddy's if ease of life is the main concern.

You can't begin to save a penny if you don't already have the equipment and skill set.
If you do have the equipment, it's a fun project and cheap to do.

I actually stand mine on end against the wardrobe and use sheet keepers on the bottom sheet. Never have a problem. Doing it in the limited space is definitely a challenge.
