Light square bottomed, not mummy style, sleeping bags are working well for us.

Sam took a sheet, folded in half lengthwise, sewed it across the bottom end and a couple of feet up the side. Actually she made one of each of us. We use these sheets like sleeping bags and then use a blanket or quilt or whatever on top as needed. Works great in the 20 foot's bed that is a pain to make.

In our EXT we swing out the bed extensions at the back to make an 82" x 69" bed, and since we're in the hot SouthWest and like a very firm bed, we use a medium comforter on the bottom, and one or 2 sheets on top.
Memory foam toppers generally make us feel too warm.

Depends on the weather, and has evolved over the time I've had my Interstate.

Warm/hot weather:
Mattress topper: FoxHillTrading Cooling Touch RV Memory Mattress Topper: Furniture : ("short queen" size is the best fit in my non-extended Interstate, despite the name it's not memory foam)
Sheex: SHEEX Performance Sheets® (the "nautical" fitted sheet uses a drawstring adjustment and is a better fit for the "short queen" topper.

Cold weather:
Mylar space blanket to reflect body heat back up.
Mattress topper (as above)
Sleeping bag: Cabela's Adam & Eve 40° Sleeping Bag : Cabela's (don't need anything heavier than the 40° model since I'll have the furnace running).
WBCCI #1105

Many of us use foam mattress toppers and standard bedding. See more on this thread:

For our EXT, Tempurpedic 3" mattress topper (California King size). Fits pretty much perfectly and changed our lives. We have been living inputs for 5 months full time. We went through a couple different kinds till we found this one. Kinda pricy but for sleep like this, priceless.
