The 3 Best RV Bedding Solutions [REVIEW and VIDEO]

 The 3 Best RV Bedding Solutions [REVIEW and VIDEO]

The most important part of an RV just may be the bed. That's why we have come up with the three best RV bedding solutions that we think will give you a great night's sleep!

Now before you read on, let me say right off the top that these are the best… meaning they are also pretty expensive. 

If cheap is what you want, a $29 sleeping bag from Walmart will do. So will a couple of blankets.

But if comfort and quality and a bit of luxury are what you are interested in, read on.

We have bought (yes, we paid for these three bedding solutions with our iwn money, no one gave them to us for a review), and we have slept in all three. And we like all three. 

But we are asked all the time by our followers what is the best bedding solution for our RV. So, hence, this article.

We are convinced these are indeed THE BEST!

If you'd like to see them all and watch as we show each feature, clock the video below. Then scroll down for links and the details.

 

Best RV Bedding Solution #1: The RV SuperBag

For Jennifer and me, this one is time-tested. We bought a kingsized RVSuperbag back in 2012 when we first started out. And in 2013, we liked it so much we bought two twin-sized RV Superbags.

Extra: CLICK HERE to see the first review we did on it almost nine years ago!

We still use them today.

They have all held up wash after wash, trip after trip.

Think of a giant sleeping bag, with top and bottom sheets inside.

In warm weather, there's a summer-weight comforter on top, with the winter weight comforter on the bottom, serving as a sort of mattress pad.

If you're a cold-weather camper, just turn it over and use the heavier winter side as a blanket.

With the sheets Velcro'ed inside, the bed is always made up.

Just unroll it and toss it on top of the bed cushions and you're done. The bed stays made.

On your return home or on the road and a laundromat, the sheets are easily removable for washing.

We are now in a Class C RV (the Leisure Travel Vans Wonder, Rear Twin Bed model). The king sized RV Superbag we have is too big, even when we push the two twins together. But the twins work just fine.

The standard sheets that come with the RV Superbag are 200 thread 50-50 poly/cotton. We upgraded to 300 thread 100% cotton. They are really comfy.

The RV Superbag comes in 10 different colors and the company will do custom orders for specifically sized RV beds.

Our one criticism is that it takes patience to re-Velcro in the sheets. After nine years, though, Jen has it down pretty good. The secret is spreading the bag out so you can work your way around.

The standard king RV Superbag starts at $299. The Queen is $289 and the Single is $259. For measurements, options like the 300 thread all-cotton sheets and special decorator colors, check their website at http://www.rvsuperbag.com/

Best RV Bedding Solution #2: Aurora RV Linens

Aurora RV Linens are luxury sheet sets that are custom-sized for Leisure Travel van models and make for one of the best rv bedding solutions we tried

This solution is an option for those who own Leisure Travel Vans. Aurora RV Linens does custom RV bedding that will fit the Murphy beds, Island Beds, Corner Beds, and Twin Beds used in the Unity, Wonder, and Serenity RVs made by Leisure Travel Vans.

The Aurora bed linens are 100% cotton or a 50/50 cotton/polyester blend. They can be ordered with fitted pocket-style corners, or extra-long,

You can buy these as sets or individually. There's are some customization extras.

  • Pillowcases – $20 for a set of two.
  • Mattress Pads – From $59 to $159 depending on the size
  • Three different flat sheet materials – Cotton/poly blends, 100% cotton or organic cotton
  • Fitted flat sheet footers – $15
  • 2-inch depth increase on sheets – $10

Aurora RV Linens don't come with a blanket. So you can add $30 -$100 depending on the quality you choose. We picked out some Ugg blankets for $69 each from one of the big box stores that matched the Ash Gray color linens we ordered.

We used this bedding on our winter campout up on the shores of Lake Michigan in February and found them to be very comfortable and luxurious.

The only challenge we found is in putting on the sheets when the mattress in our RV has one side and both the top and bottom up flush against the walls. It takes a bit of a wrestling match to get them tight on the mattresses and all the wrinkles out when you can't walk around all sides.

For two twin sets, with pillowcases, extra sheet length, 100% cotton, and two mattress pads, our order priced out at just under $500,

We are big fans of Aurora RV Linens. We had them on the near king-sized Murphy bed we had on our previous Leisure Travel Vans Unity FX model. Because you could walk around that bed, making it up was super easy.

Best RV Bedding Solution #3 – Beddy's

With Beddy's, one of the best RV bedding systems we tried, there's the option for the super-soft “Minky” fabric on the inside top 

This is an RV bedding solution that we first heard about on one of our Sunday night “Ask Us Anything”  live Question and Answer shows on our RV Lifestyle YouTube Channel. We were talking about RV bedding and one of our viewers asked us if we had ever tried Beddy's.

We hadn't and looked it up online and immediately knew we had to try this out. So we ordered two twins.

Beddy's advertises itself as “the bed that practically makes itself.”

Their slogan is “Zip your Bed.”

And while they were first sold for regular beds like you'd find in a house, they now also specialize in RV bedding.

Beddy's is the most innovative RV bedding solution we have seen. The entire bedding goes on the mattress like a fitted sheet. It's one piece with the bottom sheet sewn (permanently) inside. It stays in place. There is no bunching up.

The top sheet is the permanent part of the inside quilt. You can get it as super soft cotton or a plush ultra soft fabric they call “minky.”  Jen got the cotton. Mike got the Minky.

Beddy's is in one piece with a zipper all around. You can unzip the top so it completely detaches from the bottom so you can kick your legs out if desired. Or use the zipper to tuck you in nice and snug. Your choice.

Because the bed attached to the mattress, in the morning, you just “zip your bed” and it is completely neat and made up.

We couldn't wait to try ours out. It was amazingly comfortable. Where the RV SuperBag tends to bunch up and the Aurora RV Linens came untucked and a bit tangled during my tossing and turning at night, my Beddy's stayed tight and in place. 

Beddy's has many different designs and colors to choose from.  We selected the Modern Gray color for our RV.

They all come with matching pillowcases and shams. And, something Jennifer particularly likes, they also come with a 14-inch drop that acts as a bed skirt to cover up the mattress.

For RVs, choosing the right size Beddy’s bedding f is simple. The first thing you need to do is gather three measurements – the width of the mattress, the length of the mattress, and the depth of the mattress (how tall it is). 

Ours is six inches. Beddy's says their product may appear a bit loose on mattresses under six inches thick. Our twin mattresses are six inches. But we use a mattress pad on top of it so we git a great fit with their 39 X 75 inches offering.

Here are the various sizes Beddy's come in:

  • Toddler – 28 X 52 inches or 71.12 X 132.08 centimeters
  • Twin – 39 X 75 inches or 99.06 X 190.5 centimeters
  • Twin XL – 39 X 80 inches or 99.06 X 203.5 centimeters 
  • Full – 54 X 75 inches or 137.16 X 190.5 centimeters
  • Queen – 60 X 80 inches or 152.4 X 203.2 centimeters
  • King – 76 X79.5 inches or 193 X 201.93 centimeters
  • Twin, full, and queen sizes all fit up to a 15″ deep mattress and king size fits up to an 18″ mattress

The Beddy's were very easy to fit on the mattress. 

But our one concern is in washing them. The sheets and top inside covering are not removable. To wash, you unzip it into two parts and wash the entire Beddy's. They should be washed alone, with no other items in the machine. 

They wash in cold water on a normal cycle and should be tumble dried in a low setting.  

The company says to prolong the life of the Beddy's, they don’t recommend washing it more than once a week.

The cost for our two twin-sized Beddy's was just under $500.

If you are uncertain what style or color to order, Beddy's will send out 2 x 3 in fabric samples to help you make a decision. Just go to https://rvlifestyle.com/beddys

What is the Best of the Best RV Bedding?

I knew you were going to ask that.

In the video, we didn't make a choice. Sleep comfort is pretty personal, after all. All three of the items we reviewed are excellent.

For me, Mike, after sleeping in all three, I have to say that my favorite was the Beddy's. It was, flat out, the most comfortable RV bedding I have used.

For Jennifer, it's the RV SuperBag. She likes the summer side and winter side. And, even though it's sometimes frustrating to Velcro in those sheets after washing, she likes the fact that she can wash them alone.

A close runner-up for both of us was the Aurora RV Linens. They are very high quality. They're just hard to make up in our RV. On a bed you can walk around, they'd be perfect

  • Thanks as always for your helpful articles. We just returned from cold weather/snow camping in Michigan and I brought a small electric blanket/throw that helped make the trip a real success. While our mattress has built in heating, my husband gets overheated while I freeze. I turned on the electric blanket before going to bed to warm up then turned it off and back on early morning. It’s probably best not to use an electric blanket all night because of EMFs although occasional use should be fine. Sometimes I put it over my knees to warm up after coming in from a hike. So, if you are camping in a site with electricity, I think an electric blanket or throw can be really useful in winter. I also always bring a small flannel sleeping bag that takes up very little room in my knapsack as an added safety feature for hiking. It can be unzipped and used for various purposes (even as a picnic blanket) and easily washed. Cheers!

  • I was hoping you’d review the QuickZip bedding. I just ordered from them.

  • Interesting article. We use Quick Zip sheets in our RV. Solved the problem of wrestling the bottom fitted sheet as the top unzips from the base. Pricey but worth it to save my back. http://Www.quick zip.com

  • I’m new to your podcasts and just love them! Is it possible to access previous ones and if so how?
