Bedding ... sleeping bag OR linens??

Hi all,

Switching from tent camping to an X17Z ... picking it up on Tuesday ... yippee!

We're wondering which way to go for bedding.

What do you use ... sleeping bags? Or do you actually make the bed with sheets and duvet?

Does it all fall down when you fold up the ends ... or do you strike the beds before moving?

Hoping for some advice from the veterans.

Cheers,

--n

Congratulations on the new camper. I prefer using regular bedding. Queen size sheets fit on both bunkends. The front bunk is a true queen, the rear bed is 2 inches shorter. I leave the sheets and a down-alternative blanket on the rear bed. There isn't room to leave more on it. The front bed is another story. It has 1.5 inch memory foam, a padded mattress pad, sheets and a down alternative blanket. I allow the front bed to hang into the box of the trailer. I lengthen the straps that hold the mattress in place.

We try to make ourselves at home and use sheets and blankets.

When we had a hybrid, we tried the sleeping bags, but the sheets, blankets and comforter quickly won over.

Same for us. When we went from tents to pop-up, we tried sleeping bags.

We transitioned to traditional sheets and comforters. Much more comfortable.

Both depending on the weather. In the hot summer months, sheets and light blanket. Fall months, sleeping bags.

I do not like sleeping bags at all so we use sheets and blankets. Even when tenting we take an air bed and use sheets and blankets. Just more comfy

Gotta also go with the sheets! The kids use a bottom sheet, but sleeping bags for a blanket...they think it is more like camping then

Here is a little tip....I walk the bedding isle at target when I am in there....you can find some real deals on marked down sheets sometimes -- especially since you don't really care about the pattern as much. I got some really high quality feel good ones for like $15 that normally go for $50 or $60.
