    Before taking my clothes off, I lie on top of it for a while and that acts like a mattress warmer to make it ready for me.

    In the morning I stuff it into a stuff sack. No need to roll carefully or do anything else, just keep grabbing bits and stuffing until it is all gone. It is amazing how small a down comforter can stuff like that.

    Laundry is a matter of taking the cover off and washing it, then putting it back on.

    This has worked for me for over 100,000 miles in 4 different campers. YMMV.

    And they are reasonably priced almost everywhere if you shop around with lots of choice for thickness/stuffing/warmth.
    That what I use as well. With a couple of wool army blankets on top and a stocking hat it's good to below freezing. The most important thing is the sleep surface. If you don't need to roll around due to pressure points every hour you sleep warm and tight.
    Before I got what is basically a bed I'd put down a foam pad and then a double Thermorest folded in two. Three layers is what it takes if your using backpack style pads. A handful of nuts or other slow burning food right before bed also keeps you warm at night.

    Cool,I just bought the double version so that was on my mind.It is so big it is unwieldy,but it serves it's purpose.

    Have you considered a "swag?" Many sizes and materials with different ratings. Most come with a built in pad and you can find doubles if you are really keen on stretching out or snuggling with a partner. Unroll it to air out, add your sheets, blankets, and pillow. Once done roll it back up and toss it in or on the vehicle. "Easy peasy" as my seven year old would say.
