King 70X79, I hear Queen Jersey (T Shirt material} fits
Double 48X79 a Twin Jersey should fit
I put an open sleeping bag on my mattress and just use a sheet or comforter to cover 8)

I use old sheets or cheap ones from the store, just normal sheets.

Standard fitted sheets never seemed to work well on our pup and seem even worse on the HTT. What I do is just put the sheets on the matress prior to securing the canvas on the outside. This way I can go outside and tuck any excess nicely under the matresses without making the bed all lumpy around the outer edges. The sheets seem to stay put better when I do this too.

While I've seen the recommendations to go one size down and use jersey sheets, we've used double-sized flannel sheets in both pups. They are a little bit lose, but we like the extra drape of the sheet over the open bunk edge (we generally use king sheets on the queen bed at home, too, so maybe we're used to the extra fabric). We tried sleeping bags, but hated them in the camper, even after many years using them on the ground. With flannel sheets, and Polartec blankets, plus a wool-filled quilt, we're very comfortable over a wide range of temps - we add the electric mattress pad when it is 30s or below and we have an electric site.
We have not been able to do much about pulling the sheet tighter from the outside; with our Cobalt, the long edge of the tenting is firmly attached underneath, and the sides are not easy to reach under. So, most of the time, I just have DH do the best he can. If I have to do it myself, it is a bit looser, but not lumpy.

This is Coleman/Fleetwood's standard sizes and I'm pretty sure many popup manufactures use the same non-standard... standards.  :rofl:   
King77” x 70”
Queen77” x 66”
Full77” x 48”
Twin77” x 40”

You can click on the image below for a better view of the 08 Fleetwood brochure.

I've never found additional sheets that fit well but I've heard jersey sheets work.

For many Hybrid travel trailers:
7'6" wide trailer has 80" x 60" beds
7' wide trailer has 70" x 60" beds

We took whatever was the smallest size that would fit (usually queen or full), then then used some bed suspenders/garters to keep it snug to the mattress:

My Coachmen (Viking is the same) trailer's "king-size" beds are 70" x 73"!  >:(

Two trailers, six tents, 18 bags, and a lot of things to fix on our new trailer... Sigh.
