While I can't tell you what we've used since we don't have our trailer yet, I can tell ya that I did some looking around at Cabela's and Bass Pro Shop today. Passed on Camping World as they're close enough to zip down, the other two are a bit farther away.
Anyway, been trying to figure out what to use on the dinette. Saw a couple of rectangular sleeping bags from Coleman that might work. You can zip them together and they're not made for low temperatures, which I hope the trailer will never get down to. One was rated for 50* and priced at $34.99 and the other was a Tandem 3-in-1 for 45*, priced at $99.99. It looked like you could zip it into 2 or 3 separate bags if you want. Need to do some more research.
I figure a bag will save from hauling around a bunch of sheets and blankets since it's also going to be used as a lounge during the day. It can be rolled up into one of the cabinet shelf areas that's gonna be dedicated for that purpose.
Also saw a bunch of camping pads from Thermarest, which reminded me that I have several in the attic that were samples way back when the company was just starting out or some such. I just know I didn't buy 'em and the guy I knew from college had a huge pile of 'em in his garage and said I could keep 'em as they were samples or pro-types or some such. Anyway, I think those will work good for extra comfort when sleeping on the dinette.
If they're needed - Dirk can sleep on practically anything. I'm the Princess and the Pea type.
And congrats on getting your build sheet completed. Fun stuff, huh?
