This conversation resenting came up, two questions:

1) Do you use a sleeping bag or sheets?

2) Do you remove them after each trip or else often?

 

We use a 2 person double sleeping bag that zips into one large one.  We wash all the bedding at the beginning of the season and as needed during the summer but not after every trip.  Bedding stays in the camper during the camping season.

We use sheets/blankets.

We wash them before our first trip and as needed through out the season (which is after every trip that the dogs come along with).

We use sheets and blankets and we have 2 sets in there. We change as needed, but not usually after every trip. If we need to change it we throw on the spare set and replace the stock on the next trip.

We have the Adam/Eve type sleeping bag arrangement like Joe. However, we line it with either regular sheets or flannel sheets. The sheets gets washed as needed, most often after summer trips which involve sand and/or sunscreen.

Ditto. Only difference is that I then steal all the sheets and blankets from DH's side....rolleyes_gifdance_giftaunt_gif

Sheets and comforters. The sheets/pillow cases usually get changed at least once per trip (our typical trip is 5 days) because I can't stand sand in the bed and it always makes it way there. The comforters we wash after each trip and return to camper. 

I've bought new pillows so the camper will have dedicated ones at least twice. They keep disappearing. Family members take them out to replace theirs with. Going to have to put them under lock and key. wink_gif

At first, in the popup, we still used the sleeping bags zipped together. I had made a polarfleece liner, so that was easy to clean; it made the comfortable temperature range wider. Then we changed to real (flannel) sheets, Polartec blankets, and a comforter. That worked best for us, since it's easier to adjust for expected temperatures - we camp in temps from a bit below freezing to around 100*. When we hit those extremes on one trip, it makes packing bedding and clothing interesting.
The sheets were washed after every trip and put back into travel supplies. We could not leave bedding on the bed in either popup, sleeping bag or sheets/blankets.
For a long time, we didn't have dedicated camping pillows, so they had their own large bag that got added the morning we left on a trip.
Now, with the travel trailer, we can make the bed before each trip, and we have dedicated camping pillows.

In the TT we use sheets, blankets, and comforter just like home.  We usually wash the sheets every 2 weeks at home so I figure that gives us 7 weekends in the camper 🙂  

 

Honestly we change them during the summer due to sweat and suntan lotion and then in the fall when we put heavier blankets on....so that winds up bein every 3-4 trips.
