We are on our 2nd RVsuperbag. We had a queen for our Casita and got a King for our Escape. Read on their site about using a King on a Queen size bed. It gives you a little extra covers when sleeping so you don't pull the covers off the other person.

We love ours. Worth every dollar and they do cost a few.

We also have a Travasak, but would buy an RV Superbag if we need to replace it. We are one our 6th year with the bag. The beauty of the bag is the sheets that velcro to the inside. We tried sleeping bags, and they were ok for short periods of time and then we had to clean them. We carry two sets of sheets for the Travasak and change them out every week. Our routine is to drop our table, slide the cushions and then unroll the Travasak from its shelf behind the table; dinette to bed in under 5. RV Superbag (aka Travasak) is one of the things we really like and have mentioned it before here: https://sites.google.com/site/ouresc...ves/rvsuperbag

Two pictures one of Travasak rolled on its shelf for the day and one ready to sleep:

In our Casita, we used a fitted bottom sheet and a comforter in a duvet cover on top. The nice thing about that is that you don't need a top sheet, so no tucking issues, and duvet covers don't have to be expensive (I love the IKEA ones). Also, you can switch out comforters depending on the season. We just lay it on top and straighten it up. We plan on doing the same with our Escape.

I purchased 3/4 sheets for my Escape 17' (48" wide) that have a bottom fitted sheet & elastic in the bottom of the top sheet. The elastic keeps the top sheet "tucked" in at the bottom. The same company makes other sizes. Very comfortable sheets.

In our 19, like others we use a fitted sheet on the mattress. On top of that we just use a sheet and a down duvet loosely fit on top, no tucking in needed. In real cold weather we will add a thin wool blanket under the duvet.

I like that I can easily stick my feet out, and/or toss the sheets back, to regulate my body temp.

Works great for us.

Jim,
We had a chuckle about your post. We plan to do the same as you. My husband tends to run "hot" at night too!

WE use a Travasack bought used off Craigslist in 2010. It works great for summer and winter.
