As a general rule of thumb we do not keep food items packed in the coach. There is the chance of rodents (field mice) getting inside. Canned goods also have allowable storage temperatures and in the summer the temperature inside the coach may exceed those temps.

With some prior prep we can have the food (human and pet) loaded in the coach within an hour the night before departing.

Our problem on the Vegas 24.1 is that the back bed, when put together as a "King", is actually 92" X 75" which is larger than a King! The lady at Bed Bath and Beyound recommended something called "The California King" set of sheets (sticker shock). My DW is thinking a King but for a deep mattress bed??? Any suggestions here?


Just saw this, so you may have already resolved the problem.

For the bottom we use one fitted twin and one fitted full. Fits the king bed perfectly! We use regular king bedding for the top!

During the day we lift the corner of the full sheet and remove the center cushion to have that extra floor space and access to center drawers. That also makes reaching the overhead cabinets much easier!

Though we prefer the king configuration, we also keep a second fitted twin in the coach, so we have a backup plan if either of us develops a knee or back issue that makes crawling into bed difficult.

Hope this helps!

We are sort of doing this all in reverse. We just bought a house after full timing for 5+ years in a 42 ft DP. We emptied it out and put everything in the house, which is also undergoing remodeling! Talk about mayhem! Now we are loading the Palazzo we just bought and trying to figure out what we need to leave in it vs what we will add for the trip.
Fortunately we can leave it here at the house and we had a 50 amp electrical hook up added to exterior of house. We are leaving next week on a 3 month trip, we will see how we do!!
