    Duvets .. and fleece blankets
    I suppose it's just a choice thing really.
    Sleeping bags are probably better if the vans cold at night but van obviously be a little restrictive.

    Double duvets, half underneath you half on top (we used to do this in a past caravan)

    Feeling very smug because last weekend we bought two Duvalays and their storage bags for a grand total of £65! The owner said that they had only been used once. They have now changed motorhomes and the new motorhome has a fixed bed. The Duvalays are in really good condition and normally are £119.95 each plus extra for the storage bags. Trying them out this weekend.

    For a single bed, either 2 single duvets, one thicker than the other - weather will determine which one on top, or my preference, a double size duvet using half as the undersheet.

    Slepping bag? Never could get on with them - too restrictive when trying to turn.

    Us too! Higher tog on top in winter, lower tog on top in summer.

    Much easier than sheets.(y)

    Last time I used a sleeping bag was in a tent..
    Sleeping bags are far too restrictive.. even the double ones.. moved on from that ..

    Our motorhome is a 'home from home' .. not a tent.. so we use a fitted sheet and duvet ..

    I use a standard sleeping bag but not done up as I find it wraps around me. The wifey has a military maggot and as she is cold blooded has it pulled up to the neck and the hood ready to go on. I do not know what happens in winter but he Chausson is VERY DRAUGHTY.

    When we had the Bessacarr which we used in 2 singles configuration I made Suevalays using a double duvet cover, stitched a seam vertically from the opening end, not quite central. One side took a memory foam topper, the other a single duvet. Sorted. Added warmth from a fleece blanket if needed.

    We use a cotton sleeping bag opened out flat as a bottom 'sheet' and a duvet on top adding blankets as necessary!
