Smile Travasaks at Tuesday Morning stores

I've found Trava-sak sets at two discount outlets in California. The stores are called "Tuesday Morning" and are similar to Marshalls. The stores in Redwood City and Almaden Plaza each had a few Queen sized ones (called a full/queen) for $129.

Travasaks are like double wide sleeping bags with some sheet sets to match. They have summer/winter sides and a microsuede cover.

This price is supposed to be one-half list price. I don't know what retail was, but I believe they're discontinued.

Regards,

Matt

Thanks for the tip. We looked at the 2 "Tuesday Morning" stores near us in Arizona, but they didn't have them. Was worth a try though.

The Tacoma, WA and Olympia, Wa stores also do not have any.

Bummer. The ones in San Jose were hard to find. They had them in the bedding area on the top shelf in the corner under a bunch of other comforter sets. I looked around and told my wife they didn't have them, then I saw them up near the ceiling and I had a guy pull them down with a ladder. They're fairly large plastic zipper package like the other bedding sets, maybe 16x30x22 inches.

We ran the winter side up yesterday and it was actually too warm (45 outside). The comforter is a nice microfiber but the sheets are just some cotton/poly blend. I say sheets but really it is just one folded in half at the bottom that velcros up along the sides.

Found one Trava-Sak at Tuesday Morning here in San Angelo, TEXAS. They had just finished doing inventory so it was relative easy to find it amongst the queen sized comforters. Thanks for the tip.

The full/queen version is working out great in my Escape 19. I'm curious about the dimensions of the twin - it would be good up front!

Regards,

Matt

That's probably by color. I believe they had four colors - red, light beige, dark beige and green. Those Tuesday Morning stores put their own inventory tags on everything so I am not sure they are using UPC codes anyways.

Regards,

Matt

I'm in San Angelo Texas also! I may be too late, but I'm heading over to Tuesday Mornings to check. I have been planning on trying to make one of these from some really good instructions from this site. Congratulations on your find!

I checked our local store hoping to find two twin sizes ones. There were three full/queen ones but no twin. I asked and the clerk and as far as she knows there were never any twins. YMMV

The queens were very nice green ultra suede fabric. If I hadn't just spent two days making quilts for the trailer I would consider getting two queen sized ones and cutting them down.

UPDATE,
I returned to my local Tuesday Morning store to take another look and I found them. They were mixed in with the comforters as Matt suggested. My store had 5 of the Queen/full size. Box said they were 66"X80" if I remember right.

This store also had 1 twin size but I don't remember the dimensions.

Price on the Queen was $129 and the Twin was $99.

SO.... I'm considering my options. I like the idea of a double sized RV bag because we are not planning on leaving the bed made up.

I also found this at "Sportsmen Warehouse" Teton Sports 4-in-1 RV Sleeping Bag - Sportsman's Warehouse and it is similar to the Travasak in that it has a thicker and thinner side. But of course its basically 2 sleeping bags. The advantage to the one at Sportsmans is you could also use just one as a single bag. It is also about 1/2 the cost of the travasak.

My question is..... Is the Travasak worth twice as much? Why? What are the advantages to the Travasak?

I'm going to buy one or the other in the next couple days. Just wondering if I can justify the Travasak?

Thanks.
