I am currently waiting delivery of an Intex Queen Size Deluxe Pillow Rest Air Bed but was wondering about what sheets people tend to use for their own raised airbeds?

I would think that the normal fitted sheet that I use on the usually double airbed wouldn't be big enough?

I'd just buy a kingsize sheet so that it stretches over and under, should be OK I'd think.

I'm having the same problem , my husband bought a coleman queen high rise bed  last time we camped in august and now i want a fitted sheet.. the bed is so big even extra king are too small. Hopefully problem sorted? i have ordered a fleece king sheet and i'm sewing the corners and threading elastic through  to make a fitted sheet working out at about 16 inches deep  all round should be a nice fit...

Sounds like a good idea to me. If you don't mind me asking where did you get your sheet from?

I use a kingsize jersey fitted sheet from Lidls but I have 2 straps that go underneath the bed and are secured to the sheet using the attachments that can be bought from Kleeneze that secure an ironing board cover and look like giant suspenders. It really works and the sheet stays put for as long as you want.

what about using a valance sheet as they don't have to be tucked in (and it'd look nice too!)
something like this

  I'm able to use a flannelette fitted sheet on our aerobed, but we also have a raised intex double and have to use terry towelling fitted sheet, which stretches further.

  Best wishes Sam

I have the Coleman Single high raised bed which is bigger than my 3ft bed at home. I bought a double flat sheet and tuck it under, might try some of these ideas for easiness Had thought of using a valance sheet but would mean buying a double which could end up being surplus to requirements if it didn't do the job

Thank you for all the suggestions, I'm going to inflate the bed and try various different sheets/valances I have and then go from there

We have just got home from our first camping trip & we have the Intex queen-size raised airbed. We used a double fleecy mattress protector from Wilkinsons as our sheet & were very cosy :-) We used the same for the kids on a standard double airbed & a single one on a campbed with no probs at all.
