Travasaks on Sale

I just thought I'd pass along that Camping World has a pretty big discount on Travasaks this weekend. I am kicking myself for buying one before the sale, but thought I'd post in case anyone is in the market.

Thanks for notifying us of the Travasak sale. I had thought they went out of business. For those who are interested, it is possible to create your own bedding for far less money if you are willing to sew a little bit. See my previous posting. Exact bed length and width of 13' Scamp? My message is #5 in this thread.

For anybody reading this thread that does not know what a Tavasak it, it's a bedding system. I had to look it up. It is apparently a lot like this RVSuperbag.com

I bought one on sale a few years ago. LOVE IT. But I don't use it in the summer. The thin side is great for spring and fall, the thick side is cozy for winter. Very easy to make the bed up in the morning too.

I know that a few campers love these type bags, but for the life of me, I fail to see much advantage over a regular set of bedding. I need to be enlightened.

I see a couple drawbacks, like how does one kick the covers off your feet if you get too hot during the night? Also, they must be bulky, to have a full set of bedding above and below you, no.

We just use a mattress cover and sheet, then top with a thin down duvet. We keep the sheet tucked in at the bottom of the bed, but the duvet loose on top. In colder weather (near or below freezing) we bring along a wool blanket to add to the mix. Even with this setup, the duvet is piled up between us, with just a sheet for comfort.

Whatever works. Just posted for those who might be looking for this product. We like the ease of being able to wash the sheets.

Thanks for the heads up Leslie...
Norma's wanted a second travasak for the dinette since she heard they were back in production.
You can open the zipper on the side to hang your feet out if you like to do that. It's nice to have fresh bedding on longer trips - the Velcro in sheets make that easy.

Had a queen size one and didn't like it. Had polyester sheets (ugh!). My wife made flannel sheet inserts for it. The other dislike is that it wasn't wide enough. The only way to keep covered up was to zip it and that was too confining. When we sold our truck camper the Travasak went with it.

Good point, Bob. My wife buys really nice and comfy sheets, and never ones with any polyester, which I believe are flannel, or some cotton.

I imagine it would not be too tough to integrate your own sheets into the Travask though, as it sounds like they are removable. Just insert the comfy ones of your own choice.
