How do you hang your feet out when you overheat?

We have a matching mattress cover supplied by ETi and use a RV superbag that we roll up during the day. We have drymesh and it fits fine.

And thanks for the info Jim on the Trav-a Sak system you used in your 19. I see there is a similar product called RVSuperbag.

Has anyone experience with either of these products?

Thanks again!

Dave Whiting
Yes. Travasak is no longer made but a similar product is the RVsuperbag. The beauty of the is that the sheet bel rod to the inside and moves with the cover. We carry two sets of sheets and change weekly just like home. Our web site hasore infoation on this product.

Re: Tavasak
I saw an ad recently from Camping World of Tavasak's on sale. Seems they are back in business.

Good, more choices. We do like the longer sheets made by Superbag as they fold down over the quilt on the outside.

Thanks Tim and Julie, your post with photo is really helpful. Is that a shelf just peaking out at the right of the photo?

Bags, Old Bag, sleeping bags. Makes sense to me.
