A good night’s sleep is essential whether it is a travel day or a fun day. Finding the right RV sheets for the beds, bunks, and fold out sofas in your RV can be difficult because the sizes aren’t standardized the way they are for the beds you use in your sticks and bricks. Whether you need sheets for a Class A, Class B, 5th wheel, Class C, travel or pop-up trailer, camper, Airstream, Bus, Boat
, or van our roundup of sheets will help you quickly and easily find the size and style you need.
To that end, we’ve provided a list of the sizes each sheet in our roundup comes in right up front, so you won’t waste time learning about a sheet that doesn’t come in the size you need.
Wise RVers will tell you that driving when you’re tired is a mistake and they’re right. Whether they know it or not, sleep deprivation which just means not enough sleep to meet your needs, makes driving your rig much riskier than it is when you’re well rested. Good sheets will help you sleep well.
If you want to jump right in, here are our selections of the best RV sheets:
As you can see in the chart, the variety of common size mattresses you may need to outfit with RV sheets varies significantly. It is important to measure your mattress so you will know which size sheets you need. Be sure to measure the depth which is usually not very deep.
Make sure you measure your actual mattress. Two mattresses with the same description can have different dimensions. You’ll be much happier with your sheets if you measure and compare your measurements to those the manufacturer lists for the sheets you choose. A 2” difference can mean the sheets will pop off every night. It’s worth taking the time to measure.
Parents often assume children are fine on cheap sheets with a low thread count and while such sheets are serviceable, the difference between sliding into a bed whose sheets seem to welcome you and those that are scratchy makes a world of difference when it comes to getting settled down to sleep.
Most children enjoy the softer, silky feel of bamboo, microfiber, Supima, Pima, and Egyptian cotton and the warmth of flannel. Using a higher-grade material for their and your own sheets will enhance the entire family’s ability to sleep well. They will also be more durable. In bunk bed sizes, better quality does not make a tremendous difference when it comes to the price.
The best sheets become useless if the fitted sheet shrinks too much so that it no longer fits the bed. The sheet shouldn’t shrink more than 5% of its size.
In an RV, a lack of storage space is a persistent issue along with keeping the loaded weight within the specs for your rig. High quality cotton sheets are lovely, but they take a lot more room when they’re folded than microfiber sheets of a similar quality. Cotton sheets with the same thread count as a microfiber set will also weigh more than microfiber sheets.
Having two sets of sheets, one on the bed and one that is clean and ready to go is the best case scenario. Accidents happen. Whether it’s a spilled drink or something messier, the ability to put a fresh set of sheets on the bed and go back to sleep has a lot of value.

Roundup of Best RV Sheets
This round up can save you many hours of research when you’re in the market for hard-to-find RV sheets. These sheets have been selected for their size, quality, durability, and value.
Microfiber RV Sheets
Microfiber sheets can be silky soft to the touch and while they tend to be thin, they are more durable than many other sheets at the same price point. Microfiber sheets can be made from synthetic materials, natural materials, or a combination of the two. In order to drill down to the make-up of a microfiber sheet, it is necessary to read the ingredients.
Polyester polymers, wood pulp, bamboo, and nylon can all be used in the making of microfiber sheets. Microfiber refers to the fibers which are very thin. A measurement called a diener is used for microfiber which must be 1 diener or less in order to qualify for the name. For comparison, silk has a 1.25 diener.
Individual microfibers are weak, but they are woven tightly together to create a durable fabric that is surprisingly tough.
Microfiber RV sheets tend not to breathe as well as cotton but they can wick moisture away and, if the air is humid in the rig as it often is, especially if you’ve been cooking with butane or you’re in the Southeast, microfiber can keep the moisture out.
One benefit of microfiber is that it costs less to produce because no one has to harvest the cotton and it is easy to dye so the color options tend to be broader than you’ll find in more expensive sheets.
You won’t have trouble finding a color you like in the right size with The Great American Camper Sheet Sets as they are available in an impressively wide array of rich and colorful choices including grey, royal blue, light green, black, lavender, navy, chocolate, and more.
The Great American Store provides a lifetime guarantee that will provide refunds, replacements, or exchanges of products purchased from their store. They want you to be 100% satisfied at the time of purchase and in the future. This is an amazing promise to stand behind their products.
These sheets are 100% brushed microfiber that makes them very soft and comfy but durable. They resist shrinking and wrinkling as long as you follow the care instructions which are simple.
These sheets are available with depths that increase from 6” to 30” deep in 1-inch increments, so you can find a sheet that fits your mattress perfectly no matter how thick it happens to be. They offer the following sizes in every thickness:
They are shipped from overseas, so they take a week or so to arrive
Egyptian Cotton RV Sheets
You used to have to have a fat wallet to buy any sort of Egyptian cotton sheets. Today, you can spend anywhere from less than $50 to over $500 for a set of Egyptian cotton sheets. The thread count and finishing affect the price. Cotton becomes softer each time you wash it and the longer threads mean it is unlikely to pill which can wreck the comfort of a sheet over time.
Egyptian cotton has longer fibers which means it is a hardier fiber to weave sheets from and gives it great durability.
Egyptian cotton is one of the finest materials you can use in a sheet, but 300 thread count is at the low end of what you’ll want in a good sheet. These RV sheets provide you with Egyptian Cotton without the higher price. Whether you want soft and soothing or bold, contemporary colors, Rinku RV sheets offer colors to complement your décor. In addition to the peach, blue, gold, black, burgundy, and sage green in the illustration, purple, white, ivory, wine, lavender, light pink, taupe, chocolate, navy blue, beige, royal blue, elephant grey, and silver grey are offered.
Rinku lists the size details in the product description. One of the really nice features of the Rinku RV sheets is that every size comes with two pillow cases. This is great for those with a smaller bed who likes to use two pillows. Many side sleepers fall into this category and more people sleep on their side than in any other position. The cases that accompany the smaller sizes are 20” x 30” and the larger sheet sizes come with 20” x 40” pillow cases.
The pocket is 7” deep which is a good depth for many RV mattresses but too shallow for some so measure before you get your heart set on one of these fabulous colors. They are fully elastic around the bottom of the fitted sheet – a characteristic of a higher quality sheet.
With Italian finishing, these Egyptian cotton sheets are silky smooth and durable enough to last. You can try the luxury of these Egyptian cotton sheets and return them during the first 30 days with no questions asked if they do not meet your expectations. You can’t clean or launder them if you want to return. Says 14 days in another section

Flannel RV Sheets
There’s nothing better than sliding between warm flannel sheets on a crisp fall evening to settle in for a full night’s sleep.
Flannel can be made from cotton, wool, or synthetics but they are most often cotton that has been created to be soft via its high-pile.
Flannel will help you stay warm and cozy even when the wind howls outside. The thicker it is, the warmer it will be. Lighter flannels can be used in summertime by those who enjoy being warm while they sleep.
Flannel prices have a wide range. Thinner versions can be affordable whilst thicker wool versions can run you as much as other high-quality sheets. But if you’re a full timer and your rig’s insulation is lacking or you’re up North, heavy wool flannel sheets may be your favorite thing during the winter months.
It is difficult to find flannel sheets in a wide range of RV sheet sizes – perhaps because most people only use their RVs in good weather and many full-timers head south during the winter to avoid the cold. Nevertheless, it is possible to outfit some of your beds in lovely flannel sheets and a bit of skill with a needle can transform a large flannel sheet into a pillowcase type enclosure for a smaller mattress. If you love the warmth flannel provides, it will be worth the effort.
You can find an abundance of styles in the following sizes. Of course, you can also use bed straps to make a larger sheet fit your bunk sizes.
Great Bay flannel sheets come in patterns that make one think of hearth and home and hot chocolate by the fire while wearing warm and cuddly socks on a cold winter’s morning.
Switching to flannel sheets as soon as the nights are cool helps to keep you and your loved ones snuggly and warm through the night although they may also make you linger under the covers longer in the morning. Made from 100% Turkish cotton with old world pride, these sheets are sure to help you enjoy enchanting dreams.
They come with a 100% satisfaction guarantee and a 3-year warranty. Despite their Turkish cotton origin, they can be on your mattress tomorrow with Amazon Prime. The bottoms of the fitted sheets are fully elasticized to help them stay in place.
If you prefer more elegant or seasonal colors, Superior flannel sheets is sure to please. The browns and tans in the paisley on the right coordinates very well with interior designs offered in recent seasons. These designs will maintain your stylish décor from harvest time through the time when tulips bloom.
Constructed of 100% cotton flannel that has been double brushed for added softness, you will be delighted with the warmth they provide. Coordinating duvet cover sets and extra pillow cases are available as well.
They are available in a sophisticated pallet that includes ivory, light blue, navy blue, pumpkin, and purple.
100% brushed cotton
Bamboo RV Sheets
Bamboo sheets have exploded in popularity during the past decade. The fibers of sustainable bamboo plants can be made into a soft pulp that can be transformed into threads that are then woven together to create soft and durable sheets. As an added benefit, the antimicrobial and hypoallergenic properties of bamboo remain with the sheets.
Linewalas makes bamboo RV sheets that will fit an RV Queen or Short Queen bed as well as a full size that is perfect for wider bunk beds. The 100% natural bamboo sheets contain thermal regulating qualities that help you maintain the perfect body temperature while you slumber.
Ras Décor offers the largest selection of sizes in RV sheets and doesn’t make them too deep for bunk beds. They fit mattresses up to 8” deep and are elastic all around the bottom of the fitted sheet to help the sheets stay in place. The color selection ranges from white and light pink for your little princess to deep burgundy for a romantic mood-altering bed for the grown-ups.
Made from 100% cotton with a 100% satisfaction guarantee, you can’t go wrong when you choose these RV sheets from Ras Décor.
These silky soft sheets feel luxurious next to your skin and can be made in custom sizes if your RV is extra difficult to fit.

Made for RV mattress depths
Delivery can take about a month so they’re not a good choice when you’re in a hurry
Eless understands how mattresses are made for RVs and that bunk beds don’t have 15” thick mattresses because there wouldn’t be any room left for the sleeper and a high mattress makes the railing inadequate to safeguard your little ones. Every size they offer is available in three depths – 6”, 9”, and 12” so you won’t have a bunch of extra fabric making a thin mattress lumpy. They also offer a wide assortment of sizes for bunks and RV mattresses in bedrooms.
Even bunk sizes come with two pillows – a nice touch indeed!
These luxurious RV sheets are breathable 100% cotton, finished to make them soft to the touch. The thread count is 400. Many of the colors have a tone-on-tone stripe that is more pronounced in darker colors and subtle in the lighter color selections.
If they don’t have your size, they will custom make RV sheets to fit your needs.
They are easy care, just wash and dry but no bleach.
They provide a lifetime cash back warranty because they take pride in providing awesome customer service.
Jersey knit sheets feel like they’re made from soft t-shirt fabric and they are scrumptiously cuddly. They won’t last as long as high quality cotton or microfiber sheets but they’re in expensive. If you have a bunk full of rough and tumble kids who are liable to find some way to ruin whatever you use, this is a great option because the investment required to outfit their bunks with jersey sheets isn’t high.
If you have a child who enjoys softness, they may really enjoy jersey knit sheets in the RV, too. Although adults might like them, for example, my massage therapist uses them on her table, they are more commonly made for smaller mattresses.
Gilbin makes jersey knit sheets in RV sizes that come in a delightful array of colors and imaginative designs that are sure to please your eye.
These Gilbin Jersey Knit RV sheets fit bunks that are 30” x 75”. This is a brand to check out if you need bunk sheets that are soft and easy to care for at a very affordable price. Like a t-shirt, they are light weight, wrinkle-free, and wick away moisture to keep you comfortable all night long. Extra pillow cases are available.
Designed to keep you warm in cooler temperatures and with breathable coolness in the warmer months, these durable all-season RV sheets provide year-round luxurious softness, so you’ll be well rested and able to enjoy your day.
Make sure you select your size carefully as some of the fitted sheets have a depth of 6” which will fit better for many RV mattresses.
They’re stain repellent which is especially important in the kids bunks. They’re hypoallergenic and dust mite resistant. The elastic goes all the way around, a feature often found in high-end sheets to help the fitted sheets stay in place. Shreem Linens RV sheets are made with 100% long staple cotton in burgundy, chocolate, dark grey, ivory, white, light pink, light blue, sage, taupe, navy, and light grey.
They have sizes that fit most of the bunk and bed sizes you’ll find in an RV as you can see in the chart below. If they don’t offer your size, they’ll make custom sheets to fit your bunk or bed perfectly.
These 400 thread count sheets are a premium product that offer both comfort and quality. Whether you’ve customized a van, refurbished an old Airstream or you are outfitting a brand new Class A, these sheets will make going to bed more enjoyable.
The company prides itself on being a socially responsible and compliant factory that wants their employees, your bed, and the world to benefit from their contributions.

Special Problems with RV Sheets
Non-standard sizes are a well-known problem when you’re buying RV sheets and mattresses. Another problem is access when you’re putting the sheets onto the mattress or making the bed in the morning. The floorplan of an RV can make it difficult to access the mattress. This is something to consider when you buy your RV, but it is also a factor when you buy sheets. You want the sheets to stay in place as much as possible.
For example, this nice compact design looks great but changing the sheets can be a daunting task. If it’s a weekend trip or a week’s vacation, a sleeping bag that you can wash when you get home is probably better than sheets in this type of configuration. If you’re a full-timer or a summer resident, you’ll want sheets you can wash.
If the kids are old enough, you may be able to get them to crawl in and maneuver the sheets into place but it’s hard to do. If you pull the mattress out, you have to make sure the floor is clean or risk getting the mattress dirty and the sheets might pop off when you roll the mattress to get it back into place.
You can resolve that problem by using sheet grippers, which I consider a must have for RV sheets. The ones that just grip the corners are liable to jump off when you have to fold the mattress so grippers that stretch across the width of the mattress work the best.
If you’re trying to get your wife to love the great outdoors as much as you do and your rig has bunks that make changing the sheets difficult, do that task yourself if you want any chance of making her your lifelong camping companion.
Even changing the sheets in a bedroom can be more difficult than it is at home. This Sandpiper FLIK has a handy built-in shelf for your nighttime necessities but it can make changing the sheets more difficult than it is at home where you have easier access to the corners at the top of the mattress.
Mid-bunk rooms provide privacy and larger bunks in a minimum amount of space, but they can be just as difficult as a corner bunk when it is time to change the sheets. The good news about this type of arrangement is you don’t have to fold the mattress when you slide it back onto the bunk but there isn’t much room in the bunk room to maneuver. Sheet grippers help make sure it isn’t a daily task. And if you’re putting adult-sized people in here, grab a latex mattress topper so they aren’t grumpy from sleeping on an uncomfortable mattress. Latex will work better than foam because foam changes its consistency as the temperature changes.
A bunk room provides one of the easiest setups when it comes to changing RV sheets. Models that have bunks in the hallway provide an equivalent level of ease when it is time to change the sheets but less privacy for the sleepers.
Another issue with RV beds is odd shapes. Some have rounded corners that are great for avoiding bumped shins in tight spaces. Others have angled edges that require adjustments to the sheets with either sewing skills or sheet grabbers.
When you have several bunks of varying sizes like those in the above photo, it can be helpful to write which bunk each set of sheets belongs to on an area of the sheet where it won’t be visible.
All the sheets in our final round up have numerous good qualities and some of them have really wonderful satisfaction guarantees. Ras Décor tops the list for a variety of reasons including the guarantee, wide array of sizes, color selection, and value. For the kids bunk beds, Shreem sheets wins because they’re stain resistant.
We didn’t cover them in our review but wanted to mention QuickZip sheets for anyone with mobility issues that makes changing the sheets difficult. Check out QuickZip Fitted sheets.
