Our new trailer has the quad bunk-room in front and the slide out queen bed in back. I'm wondering what most people use on the beds....sheets & blankets or sleeping bags?

Perhaps both ??

For the "Me & Hubby" - sheets & blankets,
For the "2 Boys" - sleeping bags (esp if they are inclined to sleep outdoors on occasion), also handle the young additional passengers the boys may invite.

At my age, sleeping outside is no longer important, so: sheets & blankets.

I have used a Travel Sack since the late 80's - still have it and love it. It is like a sleeping bag with sheets. Nice sheets that are velcroed in place. The outside is like a sleeping bag with two sides one with more stuffing called winter and one with less stuffing called summer. Camping World used to carry them.

Kids always used std bags or slumber sacks that are lighter and more suited for inside use.

Two ideas for you:

...if you want to use sheets on the bunk beds, you could obtain the same type sheets over-the-road truckers may use. These are fitted sheets that have the top sheet attached making it far easier to make up a bunk bed.

In our truck we use King size sheets (1 on each bunk) and fold like a sleeping bag. Simple, but it works. Toss a blanket over the top.

We have a queen bed for DW and me (sheets/blankets) and bunks for the kids (Sleeping bags). They can make up their beds themselves with the sleeping bags. Sheets would be too hard since their bunks are mostly surrounded by walls. Enjoy.

Since we have to "do up" the beds daily, sleeping bags was the way to go for us.

The TravelSack is now made by Wenzel and is still sold by Camping World - ave price for a Queen is $250.00 - but I have had mine since 1987 and it is still going strong. Mine is brown and tan on the outside and to answer your other question about the bed covers - I leave mine on with the travelsack under it.

We use sheets and blankets. Home away from home.

We have found the best bedding for our sleeping styles. Down comforters with duvet covers. Easy to make the bed. AND hubby can hang his feet over the bottom of the bed without pulling the covers off from my shoulders. The Duvet cover is washed with the bottom sheet. This goes for both house and camper.
