I hung wet stuf like towels and swim suits in the back of the pickup; hatch was open in camp during day and side windows partly open on the road.

We even take our sleeping bags to the tow vehicle and lay them out over stuff in the back. It is surprising how damp they actually are after sleeping in them. Then by evening they are warm and dry when we take them back into the Scamp.

This is surprising to me. I've slept more nights than I can to say in sleeping bags of all kinds. I've never had a bag get damp from the inside. The only reason I can think that would cause a bag to get damp from the inside is the outer shell doesn't allow the bag to breathe. I remember a number of years ago somebody trying to sell a sleeping bag with a water proof shell so you could sleep in the rain without a tent. Didn't work, the bag got wet from the inside.

Airing a bag out is always a good idea. But I'm not so sure there isn't something wrong with a bag design that gets damp from the inside.

If the bags are too warm for the conditions, the sleepers may be sweating more than usual and challenging the bags' breathing capabilities, esp if the humidity inside the egg is high.

I didn't think about that. I've experienced too hot early in the night, then I've opened the zipper a bit to let some cool air in and usually by morning zipping things up. Maybe part of the reason I've never had that problem is we have 3 bags of different insulation values. The one we use in the trailer most of the time is a 50 bag and thermostat is set at 50. For those warmer nights we have a lighter yet no shell fleece bag. For those cold nights in the tent a 15 bag, which I control the inside temperature with the zipper.

You have never been, and never will be, a middle aged "intact" female.

You're right, I'll never have that problem.

Not quite sure how we moved from clothing to bring camping, to wet sleeping bags on the inside, to middle aged "intact" females. Only could happen on fiberglassRV...

I'll be blunt... HOT FLASHES... and we get NIGHT SWEATS, which is different than wearing sweats from Tommy Hilfiger or Ralph Lauren

Saves the propane, no need to run the furnace in the winter

Anyone who's experienced hot flashes knows how a sleeping bag gets damp inside. And regular beds and bedding, and pillow cases...

I've never experienced hot flashes. Once is a while I have a bright idea flash, but that goes away before it can cause any troubles.
