I hadn't seen this before! I have taken two flat sheets and sewed the bottoms together, then up the sides for about 18". This works great. But one could do this with a light blanket and a heavier blanket to make your own travasak. Thanks for passing this on.

Easier yet, you zip two sleeping bags together - one light weight, one heavier. Depending on temp you have one or the other on top.
No sheets to get tangled in and choke you.

we bought one last month and tried it out at the cabin before our two week trip coming up...
I quite like it--the sheets stay nicely in place, and I sewed one of the pillow shams to the bottom middle and can tuck that in and it stays nicely in place.

We'll see at the end of the trip whether I like putting the table up and down each day-but it is so easy the kind of table we have-have left the small dinette as a daybed/couch.

And tons of room under the one bench seat now,that was only accessible (easily) from the small cargo door to store the travasak and comforter that makes
the cushions softer..

I was tired of breaking nails tucking in the sheets and comforter before---and I LOVE the big rear table...

With the Travasak you can remove the interior sheets for washing, a lot easier than having to wash the entire 2 sleeping bags occasionally.

You don't mean you run the fan when you run the furnace do you?

We just left our Maxx fan open on cold nights and that helped a lot with condensation.

No, just open the vent and a window. Let nature take care of the rest.

Heat will rise and if the fan cover is open and a window is cracked it will draft out the fan. You can control how much by opening and closing the window some.
