Where do you purchase GOOD rv bed sheets. We have purchased from ebay and amazon.. Every time the sheets ball up after only one week.. Any thoughts. Thanks

"Ball up"?   

There are multiple brands available, whether you buy them at Amazon, Ebay, or elsewhere. Which brands have you tried? Amazon carries several - see https://www.amazon.com/s/?ie=UTF8&keywords=72x80+sheets

Here's another source, but not sure what brand(s) they carry:

I think Sears has them as well: http://www.sears.com/search=ab%20lifestyles%20camper%20rv%20king%20sheet%20set%2072x80

I am picky about my sheets. I like silky smooth cotton sateen, the expensive ones! I couldn’t find ones for my short queen (tried three different sets) so I modified some regular queen sheets. They needed to have 4” taken off, so I just got a rotary cutter, cut 3 1/2” off towards the bottom of the fitted sheet (to account for seam allowance), serged them back together. The top sheet was easier: cut off bottom, add double fold seam like original. Voila! Gorgeous, high quality sheets that fit perfectly. I intend to do the same thing on sheets for the short king in the motorhome we have on order.

When visiting a fellow member here, our wives were talking about bedsheets and making beds in general. His wife said all she uses is flat sheets, no fitted. My wife tried it, and it worked out great for her. We're picky about sheets, and I'm extra picky about my pillow. Trying to find a replacement for my pillow now. I won't even try to order a pillow online, it would be an exercise in futility. How can a manufacturer call a pillow firm support, and squish down to an 1" thick with minimal hand pressure? Firm memory foam is like sleeping on a rock.

I'm guessing by "ball up" they mean it gets little "pilling" on the surface,like a sweater will do.

We also use regular king sheets. I just tuck all of the extra on the fitted under the mattress. Because it is tucked so far under, it never pops off.  For the top sheet, what ever is hanging past the end gets tucked way under.  We don't mind having the excess of the top sheet hanging over the sides when sleeping. Then when the bed is made, I just fold the excess on top of the mattress so it isn't hanging out below the comforter.

I have bought from them as they will make custom sizes. My bed that lowers in the garage has a mattress that is 88x54x8. They made a great fitted and top sheet (they also made a replacement mattress when the stock one gave up).

We use a set of elastic sheet "garters" on our standard fitted sheets to keep them snug on our short mattress. About $5 at Walmart or Amazon.
