Cabelas also makes some light weight compact sleeping bags that serves this purpose quite well.

While it may lower the romance coefficient, IMO the twin bed layout is the more practical setup for a class B. The ability to get in and out of bed without disturbing your partner is a big plus. A distinct advantage of the RT 210 and the Travato 59K layout is that the twin beds are a relatively spacious and comfortable 30 inches wide The Sprinter twins are invariably 25 inches in width and it's surprising how much that 5 inch difference makes in sleeping comfort. You can easily turn over in a 30 inch bed. In a 25 inch bed it approaches a gymnastic exercise. Even worse is the Crossfit twin layout providing 23 inch twin beds which I think is downright silly.

Default RT Top window seals

Finally... you really think that a body on frame vehicle is superior to a UNIBODY construction? Please explain....
The Roadtrek fiberglass high-top shells are waterproof, EXCEPT for the seals on the three top windows. They are notorious for leaking after a decade or two. The early models have a different gasket design, but in spite of a redesign, the newer seals also leak. Granted, they're in the sun every day and rubber in this environment will distort and shrink. I started to take mine apart, but found that just loosening the screws helped seal up most of the leak. Once I find a replacement gasket (1997 RT 170 version) then I'll do it right.
