RVs are tiny homes on wheels.
Like other camper things, people are often surprised to find their mattress size often isn't like any size they've seen!
For example, you might have a recreational vehicle with an RV short queen mattress.
If your mattress size is about 60 x 75 inches, it's an RV short queen.
For reference, a standard queen sized bed is 60 x 80 inches.
Why the shorter mattresses in RVs?
To save space!
Which begs the question- where do you find comfortable sheets that fit an odd-sized mattress?
What's the Deal with RV Mattress Sheets?
RVs often have wonky-sized mattresses. Not always, but often.
Sometimes they even have weird angles to them or curved corners.
This opens up a whole market for oddball-sized camper sheets, especially when it comes to the fitted sheet.
The fitted sheet is the problem child.
You can make just about any size flat sheet work in your camper.
So either you make what you have work by using sheet straps under the corners of the fitted sheet, or you buy yourself some short queen RV sheets (if that's what you have).
Can You Buy RV Short Queen Sheet Sets?
Yes you can buy RV short queen sheet sets.
There's plenty of short queen bedding for sale out there.
You just have to know where to find them. That's next!
The 5 Best Places To Buy Short Queen Sheets!
Here are our top 5 places we recommend buying your RV sheets.
The best part? You can get them in almost any color or material, even RV short queen flannel sheets (Walmart).
Here are the best places to get pre-made short queen sheets or even custom sheets.
Tochta sells regular-sized and custom sized mattresses. They also offer their custom sized 'dream collection' sheets!
This is especially great if you have a custom corner on your mattress that you'd like your fitted sheet to match.
Their customer support is stellar.
You can view their custom sheet builder page, where you can choose the color, length, width, depth, and any custom corner cuts you might have.
You pay only $15 more per custom corner.
Sheets with no cut corners for a short queen size are about $160.
Sheets are 100% cotton with a 600 thread count.
Mattress Insider ($100+)
With Mattress Insider, you can choose your size (pre-set options, not custom), color, and mattress height.
Sheets are 100% cotton with a thread count of 300. You can try them risk-free for 30 days. They have a live chat which is nice and you can call if you have any questions.
Price for a short queen sheet size is right under $100.
That's about $60 less than Tochta sheets without any cut corners.
Your QuickZip fitted sheet is "luxurious 400 thread-count sateen 100% cotton." Their sheets are all OEKO-TEX Certified.
This zippered fitted sheet will set you back about $130.
You can try and return within a 60-day window. They have a chat window powered by a bot which we don't love, but that's what they offer.
Still, their happiness guarantee includes free shipping to the contiguous states and also gift wrap available as well as a payment plan.
Believe it or not, Walmart does carry RV Queen sized sheets online! They even have (at time of publishing) flannel sheets in this size.
Not much to add here, I think we all are familiar with Walmart and their policies. This, not surprisingly, is just about your best selection available with the best prices.
View short queen sheets at Walmart.com (just be careful you are actually looking at short queen sheets as normal sized queen sheets may be mixed in with these results).
Again, I think we are all familiar with Amazon!
They sell a large assortment of RV queen sheets.
You may have to dig a little to find ones that have the size you need, but there are a large number of colors and materials available.
You'd be hard pressed to not be able to find a sheet set that works for you from Amazon.
You can also find customizable sheets on Amazon.

Will My Sheets From Home Fit My RV Short Queen?
You may have wondered if sheets from home will fit your short RV queen mattress after buying your camper.
The answer is if your bed at home is a short queen, then yes. But most likely it will be a regular size queen bed, which is longer so the fitted sheet won't work.
You Can Make It Work
Now, you might have regular-sized sheets that you made work for your short queen mattress sheets.
For instance, you may have a double bed that fits a very thick mattress that fits your RV short queen.
It might be a tight fit, but depending on the thickness of your camper mattress and the dimensions of the sheets, it could work.
Sewing Machines And Sheet Straps
Therefore, you'll either need to jerry-rig your current sheets using sheet straps, or you'll need to get a set of sheets specifically made for an RV short queen.
Best RV Short Queen Sheet Options
We will not pretend to know what you want in a sheet and rank that as 'best RV sheets.'
Sheet preference is personal.
There's no way we can know what you want or deem what's the most important in a sheet to you.
Your biggest concerns could be:
- eco-friendly such as bamboo sheets
- thread count
- whatever else!
Therefore, we will only share our opinions on the best options for certain bed-type orientations.
Bed Against Two Or More Walls
If you have this kind of bed in your travel trailer or motorhome, we're very sorry (Kelly has this, with her bed against FOUR walls. Pictured below).
It's a real pain to make and unmake this type of bed.
What may be most important in this situation is the ease of making the bed.
Therefore here are our suggestions for RV short queen bedding against walls:
This is a fitted sheet that has a zipper all around the top. This way, the sides stay on when you need to wash.
You wash the part you lay on, then zip it back on when it's clean. It's GENIUS!
No more lifting the corners of the mattress to get the fitted sheet under!
And yes, they sell a short queen size (They call it an RV queen).
That said, the next idea may be an even better one if you can get it to fit your mattress.
Beddy's is another zippered bedding solution. Imagine a pretty sleeping bag connected to a fitted sheet.
It's all-in-one bedding.
You DO have to take the whole thing off to wash it, but Beddys makes making the bed very, very easy.
No more tucking the top sheet and comforter back in every day to make it.
Now, they do NOT offer short queen bedding for RV.
That said, the stretchy sides mean it might still fit your short queen good enough.
Also, you can try using sheet straps under the corners of the foot of the bed to keep it snug.
Beddy's come with pillow cases and shams.
Camper Bed You Can Walk Around
If you have a short queen, and you can walk around it, you can get any RV bed sheets you'd like.
You can also use your sheets from home and see if you can jerry-rig them to work.
Or you can make your bedding as we mention below.
It's up to you as you have the easiest bed to make, with no concerns for annoying walls making it difficult.
Any Bed Orientation- Make Up Your Own Bedding
I got very tired of making my short queen in my travel trailer.
One day, it dawned on me that I didn't necessarily need to use traditional sheets.
Now, I simply lay a quilt on the mattress and have a duvet over me to sleep.
It works great for me and might for you as well.
Additionally, you can use something like a sleeping bag in place of sheets and a comforter.
Custom Made RV Sheets
You can have custom sheets made for your RV queen short bedding.
Maybe you have a company or material you really like and can't find your RV sheets short queen in that material.
Or, more likely, you have a mattress with weird angles, and you want a snug fit.
The best place we know to go for custom sheets, especially for those with weird angles or curves, or cutouts, is Tochta.
We love their mattresses, they have STELLAR customer support, and they are affordably priced in the market.
Things To Consider About Your Camper Bed
Mold and Mildew
RVs are not often stored in a climate-controlled storage unit.
And the mattresses often sit on a solid platform.
Meaning, there's no circulation possible underneath.
If you live in a climate that has even the slightest bit of moisture in the air, there's a good chance your RV mattress will mold underneath.
So, it's a very good preventative maintenance to get some type of lift underneath it.
Here are two options to consider to allow your mattress to "breath":
Mattress Insider offers their HyperVent Aire-Flow™ moisture barrier product.
Tochta offers their HyPUR-Flo moisture protection product.
Both allow room under the mattress, so you don't have a mold problem on your next trip.
As a bonus, Amazon offers a mattress underlayment product available in a few traditional mattress sizes.
Just like a home mattress, you want your bed protected from things like dust mites, spills, and other, err, stains.
It might also save your short queen-size mattress from getting a tear.
Some covers even help reduce allergens.
Uncomfortable Mattresses: What Can You Do?
You might wonder if you can replace your RV mattress.
You sure can! Just like sheets, you might have to get a custom-made mattress, or an RV short queen mattress that fits your bed platform.
Otherwise, consider getting a camper mattress topper.
If you can't find a topper in your mattress size or shape, keep in mind you can cut them to size as they are made of foam.
Considering Sheet Materials
The Egyptian cotton sheets you use at home to get a good night's sleep might be just what you want to get to be comfortable at the campground.
That said, when choosing sheets, you must consider the climate you camp in.
If you only camp in winter, with little to no heat, you'll want very warm fabrics.
If you camp in cold and hot climates, linen sheets are good for that.
If you always keep it 72 degrees in your rig, well, you get the picture.
Will RV Queen Sheets Fit A Short Queen Mattress?
RV queen sheets won't perfectly fit a short queen mattress (they will be too long), but you can make them work.
Try trimming the fitted sheet and then sew some new elastic in the corners.
Or, you can use sheet straps under the corners of the fitted sheet to make it more snug where needed.
What Size Sheets Fit A Short Queen Mattress?
Most short queen mattresses are 60 x 75 inches. Some might come as 60 x 70 inches.
Measure your mattress to know for sure what size you have and, therefore, what RV sheet sets will fit yours the best.
Purchase according to the dimensions of your mattress.
Mattresses for RVs are not always like regular mattresses.
Often the size is smaller than the traditional.
You're lucky if you have an RV short queen, as it's a reasonably standard RV bed size.
You can buy pre-made RV short queen sheets at many outlets. Make sure you measure your mattress so you get the proper dimensions.
An RV short queen is usually 60 x 75 inches. Some of them are made with the dimensions of 60 x 70 inches or anywhere in between.
Be sure to measure the thickness of your short queen mattress, as that may be one of the factors you choose when ordering.
We recommend Tochta, Mattress Insider, QuickZip, Amazon, and Walmart to order your RV short queen sheets.

Hello! I'm the co-founder of Camp Addict, which my biz partner and I launched in 2017. I frigging love the RVing lifestyle but in December of 2020, we both converted to part-time RV life. Heck, I lived in my travel trailer for over 5.5 years, STRICTLY boondocking. I learned a lot about the RV life and lifestyle during those years. Now we share what we know with you here at Camp Addict.
After that many years of wonderful full-time travel, it was time for something new. These days, I'm often found working from my new Az home, and sometimes plotting and scheming whether or not to start collecting farm animals (or plotting my next RV trip!).
