When the wife joins us it is sheets and blankets. When it is just my sons and myself it's sleeping bags. Making a bed takes away from our fishing time

We've been hybrid'n for 5 years now. We tried the sheets and blankets and realized making the beds started to be a big pain over the years. We unfold a queen 2" memory foam pad and use 2 sleeping bags which can be unzipped to almost to a queen size.

Again it depends on the weather. Warmer weather we flatten out each of the sleeping bags and use it as a traditional comforter/ blanket and lay on the other sleeping bag. In cooler weather in Colorado we zip up using individual sleeping bags...

Sheets and blankets for us in our old popup and now in our hybrid. As long as my wife will make the beds each time I prefer sheets. We'll see if she keeps it up. Now if I had to make them it would never happen.

I have to hang onto my tent camping roots. Sleeping bags all around.

Sleeping bags. Too much work making the beds with the folding mattresses.

We use flannel sheets both the fitted and top sheet in the warmer months with a light blanket (just in case it gets cold). In the cool months we add an unzipped queen sized sleeping bag, as a comforter. So far it works nice. The only issue we have had so far is my DW is a cover thief and I have been known to get a little cold, as I sleep on the outside. A king size comforter would cure this issue (it has in the house).

As for make the bed unzip the emergency exit window and two people can make the bed really easily.
