Okay, we have always used a heavy weight quilt to hang on the cab over bed down to the floor of cab for cold weather camping (which we do a lot of). It isolated the living area from the driving area and gave us a smaller area to heat. I got rid of the one we had thinking it would be easy to replace. Well NOPE....they are all thin or want $130 to replace the twin quilt.

I really liked the quilt because we could flip it up on top of bed when we didn't want to use so no storage issue...it was always attached with sewn pocket/thin board between mattress.

What do you use? I spent about 1.5 hours shopping local and found nothing (I also want a darkER color because we have a dog and don't want to be hitting the laundromat too often). Spent 2+ hours online looking for heavy weight comforter/quilt with no results unless I wanted to spend $120 and still no guarantee it would be heavy just pricey.

So tell me what you use? It worked great by the way to make it a smaller area to heat in COLD weather.

Could you somehow sew or attach two thin quilts together?

Check Lid'l Dolly's factory outlet in Pigeon Forge Tn. They have a web site that may help.

Sewing two quilts together/YES....that is where we are going now...kind of had no choice but we have a beefy sewing machine (that we will be getting rid of as we move to full time) that will easily sew two together.

I currently don't use anything, so no help on that front.

Maybe you could get a sleeping bag of appropriate fluffiness and coloration and unzip it so it's flat?

Buy some Thinsulate fabric and sew between two blankets.

I question whether the thickness of the quilt is a relevant factor. Obviously stopping the cold air from moving to the living area is important, but is thickness helpful?

The windshield cover and closing the AC ducts in the cab are good ideas.

Hi,

I had insulbright covers made up with fabric of my choice to blend in with the draped and other furniture.
