The RV Superbag: The Best RV Bedding We Have Found

| Updated Jan 9, 2024

We've been using the RV Superbag for over a decade, and it's still The best RV bedding we have found…

What is more important than a good night's sleep in your RV? Not a lot.

Some people use old-fashioned sleeping bags. Some throw down mattress pads and use fitted sheets and blankets.

For Jennifer and me,  the system we found at the start of our RV Lifestyle back in 2012 is what we still use today. For us, it's the best RV bedding solution we have found.

Also, let me say I have absolutely no connection to the company that makes them. They are not a sponsor or advertiser. We are not an affiliate. We are customers who paid full price years ago. 

But of all the RV questions we get week after week, folks keep asking us what is the best RV bedding we've found.

I wrote the first version of this article in 2012. But today, after all these years, this is still what we use and recommend. I've updated this article to reflect our cumulative experience with the RV bedding system that basically consists of comfy cotton sheets and a quality comforter.

What Is an RV Superbag?

The RV Superbag is like a giant sleeping bag with the comfort of top and bottom sheets lining the inside. With the sheets Velcro'ed inside, the bed is always made up.

Just unroll it and toss it on top of the bed cushions and you're done. The bed stays made.

On your return home or stopping at a laundromat, the sheets are easily removable for washing.

In warm weather, there's a summer-weight comforter on top, with the winter weight comforter on the bottom, serving as a sort of mattress pad.

If you're a cold-weather camper, just turn it over and use the heavier winter side as a blanket.

You can get the Superbag in different colors, from a single to ultra-sized (that's one size bigger than king).

What Makes the Superbag the Best RV Bedding?

One of the key reasons we think the RV superbag is the best RV bedding is because it pretty much eliminates the chore of making your bed.

This is especially helpful for hard-to-make beds such as those sofas that turn into a bed found in many Class B RVs.

Now that we have an RV with two always-made single beds in the rear, we leave them unrolled and laid on top of the mattress. We put an extra-large beach towel on the bed to keep it clean if Bo, our Norwegian Elkhound, decides he wants to use one of our beds for a nap.

I don't even remember how we found the Superbag. Someone suggested a similar product called the Travasak, which was very popular with boaters. We couldn't find it, but we did find the RV Superbag, made by a small company in California.

We first bought a king-sized version. A year or so later we bought two singles.

Still In Great Shape After More Than a Decade!

We have been really impressed by the comfort and quality of our RV Superbag systems. They have held up really well.

The standard sheets that come with the RV Superbag are 200 thread 50-50 poly/cotton. We upgraded to 300 thread 100% cotton.

The RV Superbag comes in 10 different colors.

In our opinion, the upgrade was well with it. We also bought pillowcases.

How Do You Set Up the Sheets in RV Superbag?

The easiest and quickest way to install the sheets:

  • Lay out the RV Superbag, unzip both sides, and open it so the inside is exposed.
  • Unfold the sheets on the RV Superbag and lay them out so the inside is exposed.
  • Match the hook and loop tabs
  • Fold the RV Superbag closed and zip up the sides.
  • You are done!

I like this – thanks. I’m looking at getting my first RV, and I’ve seen videos of people putting the bed pieces together, but they never go the last mile and show how you tuck in sheets in those odd corners. Or what else they use.

Dumb question: Can the Superbag be rolled up or folded and put into a bolster? So if a bed can be re-conjiggered (it’s a technical term) for either twin or queen sizes, can I roll up the “spare” bedding and use it as a pillow or cushion when it’s not being used?

Most RVs are infamously hard to change the sheets on. I thought about your “sleep bag” idea, but for me, I would feel a bit claustrophobic inside any kind of a container.

A bigger problem, IMO, is the mattress. We live full time in a fairly large motorhome. Trouble is, the mattress that came with the vehicle is painfully hard. Yes, it’s durable and still in good condition, but I just don’t like the pressure on my aching bones – not even with an “egg crate” foam topper. The bed is an “RV Queen Size” bed, shorter than normal queen size, which means that the standard queen mattresses that you can find on sale at your typical bedding stores won’t fit in our RV bedroom. Oh well…
