For those who may be considering buying a Travasak, it appears the chance may be fast disappearing. As new B owners, we read a ton of great reviews about this sleep system and then went on what turned out to be a lengthy search to find one. Got sent on a few wild goose chases, but just finally nabbed one from rvupgradestore.com last week (139.99 plus shipping). It arrived today and is a wonderful fit for our PW Ascent bed. I just read on another forum that the site may have a few left in their warehouse -- light blue with tan sheets only.

Too bad such a popular product couldn't stay in business, but it looks like it didn't.

We use separate sheets and sleeping bags.

While searching for the Travasak, we tried that. Instead of bed-in-a-bag, it was bed-in-a-wad by daylight! You no doubt have a much better system for making those work than we did.

We slept in a queen sized set every night for 13 years, great product. When we downsized we invested in a pair of twin sized. It's sad to see a great product die.

AN ALTERNATIVE

A bit pricey but available.

We've been very happy with these cabin sleeping bags from LL Bean:

They roll up into a very small bundle that can be stored in the upper side compartments of our Sportsmobile. There are several other styles to choose from:

We had a queen size & didn't like it. It was too confined with it zipped and, unzipped, one person got uncovered when the other turned over. The real downer was the polyester sheets. The pits. DW sewed 100% cotton flannel sheets (we use flannel everywhere in ALL seasons) to the poly. When we sold our TC, the Travasak went with it. Glad to be rid of it.

Looong ago, I had cheap Coleman bags in my first 'RV'... a 1980 4x4 Toyota pickup with a shell over the bed. I bought a pair of clean, very slightly-used bags from an elderly widow. Starting with two zip-together 'one-and-a-half-wide' rectangular bags, she'd sewed the bottoms of two flannel sheets together. Then she added about 12 cloth tabs to the edges of the sheets and bags (inside the zipper), and put small metal snaps on the tabs.

It worked as well as a Travasak (which I now have), maybe better in one way. The sheets were easier to remove/reinstall for washing. It did lack the different weight sides, tho'.

We bought these Coleman Issaquah removable zip out fleece lined sleeping bags that fit perfectly in our B van. At the time they cost $30 each.

They can be zipped together as a pair if desired but we don't use them that way.

We made our own version of a Travasack. Essentially added Velcro to the bottoms of a duvet and the bed sheet. We thought the Travasack was overly confining so our Velcro extends only about 8" up the sides.

Works well, was inexpensive, and we vary the weight of the down comforter inside the duvet according to the season.
