    What bedding do you use, double bed?
    We have a Hymer with the drop down bed, a cheap fitted bottom sheet, has to be cheap the good ones are too big. The only thing is it's hard to fit!
    I like a flat sheet and then a Duvet. Using a flat sheet means I don't have to wash the Duvet cover so often!
    We use a Kingsize Duvet, that way I always keep covered no matter how much OH pinches!
    So, what do you use?

    Double fitted sheet underneath, tucked in for the cut out on the transverse bed (I also made some fitted sheets from flat sheets but then found a source of "long" doubles) then duvet on top. We were using a double duvet but last weekend took the king size from our bed for some reason and it was better than the double :)

    Ordinary fitted sheet, pulled under for the cutoff, as the mattress on the French bed is deeper than the overcab bed in the Bessie, with a normal just double, quilt on top. Both beds have tended to come 'untucked' s bit on the wall side (the roof on the overcab) One of the daughter has said you can get clips, joined by a sort of bungy or tape, to attach under the mattress to keep the bedding neater and we keep meaning to look, but haven't yet. Might do the trick or not. An American used a pair of Walmart crossover braces, with the centre clip removed which are ideal - but of course we don't have a Walmart ! LOL

    Still refining our system - but as we find the bed a bit hard we have two memory foam toppers and sleeping bags underneath then two single duvets, usually on the double bed. We use single stuff so we can use the single bunks if we want without having to double up on the bedding.

    Hymer b644 ..

    Good quality cotton bedding and duvet from John Lewis, same as we buy for home..

    Double fitted sheet and duvet in both the drop down bed and fixed transverse bed
    Hymer mattresses are top quality, so no toppers or memory foam required..

    and both fitted sheets fit fine.

    Flat sheet on the drop down bed. That works fine.

    The rear island bed has Duvalay fitted sheets - not a topper or those sleeping bag things, just cotton fitted sheets. The fit is perfect and they are really good quality.

    These are what you're looking for:

    They are basically short 'trouser' braces without the middle connector ...

    Two single fitted stretchy sheets on the transverse bed over the garage as it has two individual mattresses even though it is a double and a king size duvet.
