How We Roll: Bedding and Bedding Storage

| Updated Nov 21, 2015

One of the most asked questions Jennifer and I receive from readers deals with how we sleep in our Roadtrek Class B motorhome. Our answer is… great!

But since we keep getting that question, I dug out this  report we did some time back. The video was shot in the Roadtrek Etrek we just traded in. We use the same system in our new Roadtrek CS Adventurous XL, which we just picked up a couple months ago.

Seriously, we both agree we sleep just as good in the Roadtrek than we do in our king-sized Sleep Number bed at home.

Here's our video:

And that has to do with that we sleep on and in while camping out in the Roadtrek.

Wamsutta Fresh & Cool topper

In this edition of How We Roll, we answer two reader questions about where we store our bedding.

We make the sofa up into a king sized bed at night and use a four inch Wamsutta Fresh and Cool mattress topper that we picked up last year at a Bed Bath & Beyond store while traveling through South Dakota. Jennifer shows how we store in in the overhead cabinet at the rear of the bed. It takes up every inch of space up there but it fits in just fine.

RV Superbag

On top of the topper, we use an RV Superbag. It's a king sized bag with a summer and winter side and very comfortable sheets Velcroed inside. I show how we roll it up and put in in the armoire that we have installed in place of the seat that normally is behind the driver. Here's a link to the RV Superbag video review Jennifer did.

Yes, I know those bags are expensive. But we really like it, so much that we also invested in two individual RV Superbags.

I use a single when I travel alone or bring a grandkid or buddy with me on a hunting or fishing trip.

Hi Mike, We are moving up from a RT 210 P to a CS Adventurer. So I’m sure I’ll have a few questions for you. What size Wamsutta Fresh and Cool do you use in your Sprinter. King or Queen. Thanks.

We bought the Wamsutta topper recently, after our first road trip in our “new to us” 2007 Adventurous RS. I thought the queen size would be sufficient, with just a few inches on either side that aren’t covered. After laying it out on the made up “king sized” bed, and laying on it to try it out, we decided it would be better to exchange it for the king size topper. I was afraid that the weight of us laying on it would pull the sides in even more, and we might be rolling off the edges. We haven’t used it yet, but think we’ll be taking off for a few days in about a week! Can’t wait!

Timely repost for me. I was at Bed Bath & Beyond the other day and saw the Wamsutta topper but couldn’t remember which one you mentioned. So … next time I head over the river (into the US) i’ll grab one. The 4″ memory foam topper I have now is just too heavy and bulky to stow away in a Class B. 🙂

Thanks for reposting this … a timely reminder for me. 🙂

Is it true that you should buy one size larger? For a queen size bed, you should buy a king size so the bag doesn’t feel restrictive when zipped up?

How are the sheets connected with the comforter? I know velcro is used but where and how much? Seems these should be easy to make for much less money…

Excellent video will be enjoying your posts. Thank you

Great video. I like the intro piece you have before each video – you guys are too cute! My question is how do you keep the bolster sections of the bed in place while driving? They are the pieces that fit behind the little side sofas. Mine fly around when on the road.
