My folks do in their 2001 Airstream MH. They are pleased. Mom says making the RV bed is a pain in the bum (I agree, we've got rear twins in our Airstream and you need about 14 hands to get the fool sheets to fit nicely around the mattresses. She just leaves the Airstream bedspread on and puts the Travasak on top of it. In the morning she just smooths out the Travasak and goes on with her life. Looks nice too.

We will be investing in this product this year - no more fighting with sheets!

We are using the less expensive Hack Sack by Leisure Industries.

These are not as thick and puffy as the Travasaks. The colors and the sizes vary between the two brands.

The reason we chose Hacksack was for size. We bought it for the 3/4 corner bed in the 25' side sleeper. Even the full size was too large for the space and we had to fold the side over, but the Travasacks were much larger. Between the two the Travasacks are probably nicer in quality, but if there is a size or if the color varies you might consider those as well.

The sleep system is quite handy. It is much easier to smooth the covers than to tuck in. The sheets stay attached and velcro in and out. Colors and flannels are also available. There is a summer and winter side. I place our AS bedspread over it though.

We will probably get a comforter and skip the top sheet when I find ones I like for the new queen bed. I just don't have any sheets for it and I still had the hacksack.

If you like sleeping in a sleeping bag you will love it. We are leaving the zippers open to slide out more easily. But when it's cold zipping up really keeps the heat in and the drafts out.

We got one late last year when Camping World had them on sale. Ours is the queen size.

I think they're great.
The hardest part for us was trying to figure out how the sheet works.

Used it about 12 times so far this year. Kept me warm at 35 degrees in Minnesota.

Making the bed is SO MUCH easier!

I don't have complaints so far.

We have the Travasaks for our twin beds and my wife loves them as you no longer have to make up the beds every morning. They also have a winter and summer side for warmth and less warmth depending on your preference.

The down sides

I used first a Hacksack and later the TravSack in my Scamp and Trailmanors. In both cases, the beds were very difficult to make with standard bedding. On balance, they were just acceptable in those situations. The Travsack was constructed better than the Hacksack. I sold both pieces of bedding to popup owners.

Unfortunately, I found the bags to be either too hot or too cold most of the time. They tend to bunch up under you and be uncomfortable.

In the Airstream, where I can reasonably get around the bed to make it, I would not choose to use either product.
