Never tried them - looks similar to sleeping bag plus liner which I can say works well.

One of these would be great for my teardrop trailer - making the bed is near impossible.

I believe Davydd commented on using these or something similar in the past.

Travasak has also reappeared, after being gone for a while. I think Camping World and Amazon have them, and probably others. Very similar, and always were a bit less money, but now appear to have gotten more expensive. We have had ours for 6 years and really like them. We use two singles.

I have one after reading all of the positive reviews. I used it for one night and then put it in storage. The problem I encountered is that I bought the right size to fit my Class B bed (queen) perfectly. This meant, however, that it was pretty constricting. If one person rolls over or moves it moves the other person. I should have ordered a much larger size, but then that would have defeated the nice clean look. Or I should have ordered two singles, but then it's really no different than a sleeping bag with a sheet inside and there are a lot of companies that sell those. After one night and some pretty hefty sunk costs, I switched back to some nice sheets and a light duvet.

I have to ask what advantage is there to these?

I don;t see it so please enlighten me.

I'm using sheets, blankets.

sleep bags usually slide because of the nylon.

They are nice because the bed can be made in about 20 seconds and taken up barely more than that. They roll up and stash under the cabinets where your feet go in out 190P. Plus they have one warm and one cooler side so you get cover more temps. Making the bed with sheets and blankets was a major PITA for us. We got the Travasaks after the first trip.

If you get a couple sets of liners, it makes keeping the bed clean fairly easy.

ah, ease of set up.

It looks as we are trending to leaving the bed made up.

Thanks, Mike

We have the RV Superbag with optional 100% cotton sheets and love it. It's pricey but very comfortable for sleeping and quick to setup.

Consider these points in determining whether the Superbag, or similar Travasak are worthwhile for you:

Do you prefer sleeping on sheets or in a sleeping bag? If you're good with sleeping bags then just get a couple of inexpensive bags with flannel liners. But if you prefer to sleep together I'm not aware of any double or zip-together bags where the liners also double up and combine together.

Do you have a permanent bed? If so just use standard sheets and a comforter for lower cost. But if you have a dual purpose dinette / bed like ours the Superbag saves at least 10 minutes of awkward contortions every night trying stretch out and tuck in the sheets and blankets. Just unroll the Superbag and you're ready to go.

Do you prefer 100% cotton sheets? If yes then the RV Superbag is the only way to go. We love those nice cotton sheets. If poly blend sheets are ok then you can save some money with the Travasak.

Sizing - buy the next size up from your actual bed dimensions. Our rear dinette/bed is just over 64" wide but we purchased the full King size Superbag for plenty of room. As migriffin notes, the smaller queen size would be too constricting.

With cotton sheets and stuff sack our RV Superbag was almost $400. Way more than a couple WallyMart cheapo bags but less than two backpack quality sleeping bags. It's turned out to be probably the most useful item we've purchased for our Sprinter class-b.
