Cheryl likes bedding but I may convince her to try two zip together sleeping bags, one heavier for low temps and one lighter weight for warmer weather. What ever one seems most appropriate ends up on top.

I like stuff sacks also, smaller size than rolled when just stuffed in. A backpacking sleeping bag is so much easier to clean then down sleeping bag. With care a good quality one will last for decades. Stuff sack full of sleeping bag also makes a nice back rest pillow.

Sleeping bag is what I go with as it makes me feel all snug and cozy. I do have a memory foam/sheet gizmo I made by cutting both to size and rolling out like a sleeping bag, but I did that only for extra cushion and to collect Doritos crumbs .

I'm a little confused, since many backpacking bags are down-filled. I agree, though, that synthetic-filled bags are more practical for use in a trailer, where weight is less of an issue. Good ones don't clump like down when washed. Down also needs to be stored uncompressed, so you need a separate storage sack.

I still use a North Face synthetic mummy bag that I bought in college more than 30 years ago. It's seen hundreds of nights' use backpacking, tenting, and now Scamping. One of these days I'll get around to cleaning it…

Cindy sewed a couple of sheets together and we just roll the sheets and blankets up in the morning and unroll at night.

I outgrew sleeping bags when I traded a tent for an all molded towable. There's something about sleeping in real sheet/blankets that's NIRVANA.

YMMV

For use in our trailer, I love using real quality sheets. So much more comfy that the sleeping bag/Travasack thing.

I do understand though for folks like the OP, that if they need to tear down and completely remake the bed every day, sheets might be quite a pain, and a bag might be better.

BTW, our idea of making up the bed, is more like straightening it up. We just don't worry that it looks perfect, just that it sleeps so.

Several years ago when we had a truck camper, we bought a Travasak. Big mistake! The sheets had a lot of polyester in them, which we hated. My wif made some 100 % cotton flannel sheets for it. That was an improvement BUT.... the camper bed was a queen so we bought a queen Travasak. Big mistake. It wasn't wide enough. Could not keep covered up unless it was zipped up and sometimes we didn't want to be zipped in because it was too warm and it definitely was too confining. When we sold the camper, the Travasak went with it. The Sak was, in my opinion, a good idea poorly done. Only 100% flannel for years now both in the trailer and at home.

I have to add me +3. I use 3/4 fitted sheet sets for the bed in my Escape 17B, and a Vietnam era poncho liner as a blanket. I do have an additional blanket I dig out in the coldest weather, but the poncho liner is an amazing product.
