    Hi, we have the Hymer Exsis-T 588 with 2 single beds and infill cushions to make a large double. Has anyone with the same model any tips on fitted bed linen, its a nightmare:

    Single bed parts are only 80 m wide and one is split to lift up, with the bottom part (under feet) tapered
    Infill cushions - 1 permanent on upper half, plus additional infill cushion (between the 2 sets of fett, not shown on diagram

    currently using cheap fitted single bed sheets and folding round but they are rather baggy

    I would like stretchy ones and have looked at the Hymer online accessories shop but it's a nightmare working out which are the correct ones - they don't specify model and they could be wrong - no contact form or anything to ask advice

    Any owner out there solved it?

    TIA, Ruth

    Hi Ruth, we have a Hymer Exsis I578 which looks to have a similar bed arrangement at the back. We managed to find small single fitted sheets (narrower) which seem to fit well although there is still a baggy bit in the cut out corner. I could solve that with a bit of elastic tbh. I have made my own covers for the infill cushions.

    Have you tried IKEA?
    Their bed/mattresses are not UK standard sizes - just might find something suitable.

    Or do you know of a seamstress, or alteration service - might be able to alter a standard sheet cheaper than getting bespoke MH ones.

    Jonic ???

    We have a i678 same bed layout, bought some standard sheets and elastic and made two sets of fitted sheets to fit, had to do it myself as wife couldn't be bothered.

    Try multiple fitted baby's cot sheets. Cheap as chips on eBay.

    Wow, I'm not surprised that you are struggling to find something to fit :LOL:.

    Suggest that you search French websites e.g. leboncoin.fr for "drap-housse 80 x 190" there seem to be loads or other lengths as needed.

    Thanks all, it's a pain as I don't like white or cream in the van, risk of getting grubby quicker!

    .

    We were the same, I have gone for a jolly Satsuma colour on our beds which are the same as yours ! I didn't have any old single sheets and so bought one from a charity shop for 20p to use as a template to work out what to do.

    Lots of other colours are available in a small sized single or flat sheet that you can simply hem and add elastic to deal with the corners.

    They cannot get any dirtier any quicker but as usual with wimmin it's appearances that matter.

    Have a look at those made for static caravans as the single beds are often narrower than domestic beds.
