Sportsmobile Penthouse bedding

Super excited, we picked up our newly converted Sprinter RB 4x4 with Penthouse last week at SM North.
Great build and great people at SM North.

Having never had a penthouse or seeing the bed itself when ordering I was a bit surprised to see the mattress configuration which is wider at the head and shoulders and narrower below.
Our previous 2008 Sportsmobile Sprinter had a Gaucho Bed which we covered with a mattress cover, sheets, blankets and pillows for all the comforts of home.
We still have a gaucho in our 2021 RB so same all for that but interested in how everyone that owes a penthouse deals with the bedding.
Maybe just a double sleeping bag?

I don't think I could get a custom mattress cover for it with such an irregular shape?
Very interested in your experiences with what works best and thank you in advance.

You can check these guys out : Welcome Aboard We used one of these both in the penthouse and on the gaucho. One side is summer weight, the other is winter weight. They have sheets that Velcro inside the bag, if you go this route spend the money for the upgraded thread count on the sheets.

They also makes custom size fitted sheets, so you could also explore that route.

Thanks Greg,
I took a look at the sleep systems offered by "Welcome Aboard" what a great idea with the sheets attached to the bag. I was thinking sleep sack sheets into a sleeping bag but this takes it a step further.
They even make a narrowing bag for a V-Berth which I never though of the similarities between the Penthouse and a V-Berth on a boat.
