In the infamous words of an ex-coworker about camping "I can't understand why anyone would go to so much trouble just to inconvenience themselves".

Methinks you do understand.
Oh, and isn't warm Chardonnay part of the camping experience?

Also the RV Superbag has a winter side and a summer side. You just flip it over and put the side you want up. You can have the sides zipped or unzipped. When unzipped it's just like a blanket. Sheets velcro in and you can get upgraded cotton sheets which feel great. We just leave the bottom zipped so not good if you want to hang your feet out. A little pricy but we buy $35,000 campers and $40,000 vehicles to pull them so why not have good bedding. We have several friends that have them too.

making the bed in a 19' Escape

Well... After serious consideration and discussion I ordered the slumber bags from Wiggys.com. I changed out the sheets and blankets I struggle to get on and keep on the bed. Put on the comforter cover I made last year to bring with the down comforter when we went to pick up our 5.0TA in the fall. (So now it will be a permanent mattress cover)
The 2nd reiteration of bed making (for our last trip April 30-June 24) we had fleece sheets to start with and one fleece blanket and a velour blanket. Depending on how cool or hot it was we had with a one, 2 or 3 blanket night (using the fleece sheet as a blanket too). So now we are going onto our 3rd reiteration of blankets using the slumber bags on top of a mattress cover.


Once we get the slumber bags and use I will let you know how we liked using it!

Great job on the comforter cover and color scheme. It looks so inviting, I think I'm ready for a nap. Here's hoping for a happy ending with the slumber bag
