finding "RV Short King" mattresses and sheets

Just spent my first night in my new (to me) used 2019 Keystone Outback 240URS.  It was great, except for being on a naked and beat down mattress.

Turns out the size is RV Short King which is 72" x 75".

Searching on the internet, the only two vendors for that size mattress that I can find are:

On both sites, the middle-quality option is about $1100, so not much difference there.  But also... neither one offers sheets in that size.  They both carry sheets, just not in that size.  Which is stupid, and a terrible customer experience.

So, my questions are:

  1. Are there any other vendors for RV Short King mattresses besides there two?
  2. Are there any vendors for RV Short King bed sheets at all?

UPDATE:

I've tried two different fitted sheets for my mattress so far, and both haven't fit as snugly as I want.  Maybe my expectations aren't reasonable, or maybe the market has so far done a poor job of providing fitted sheets that will be super-snug on an 8" RV short king mattress.

First one:  https://amazon.com/Microfiber-Sheets-Campers-Trailers-Mattress/dp/B07MTG4P87/

Second one:  https://amazon.com/Ras-Décor-Linen-Sheets-Motorhomes/dp/B07MBZ7PCS/

My experience is sheet makers think everyone is buying taller mattresses so sheets no longer fit tightly on regular ones. We use a pair of men's suspenders under the mattress to help keep our sheets on. We recently tried a thing called a bed scrunchie but it was more hassle than the suspenders and didn't work any better so it's about to be sent back for a refund.

My sister-in-law makes her own fitted sheets by sewing up the corners of flat sheets. Hers fit.

Good idea.  Maybe I'll ask for that next time I'm friends with someone who can sew.  :)

They make "like" suspenders for mattresses that you ca buy at any dollar store. works for our sheets.

I have these:

I think they helped a little.  Hard to be sure.  Still not satisfied, though.
