Warmth/cool for canvas bunk ends

Hey all. What is available for keeping the bunk ends warm in cooler weather and cooler in hot weather? Some form of blanket? I have a 2012 23ss ROO. Thanks

What a lot of people use

Basically it is foil and bubble sheet for reflective insulation. Works for both hot and cold. Most people use these: PopupGizmos

I also placed a layer under the bunks. Made a huge difference in cold weather given that you weight compresses the foam down to less than an inch of insulation UNDER you.

Popup Gizmos have probably a 98% customer satisfaction record.
#1 hybrid mod. Also has other benefits, like keeping the canvas clean/protected and darkening for late risers or afternoon naps.

Adding Reflectix makes it even better.

Popup Gizmo's on top, blue foam board and a space blanket under the mattress and reflectix cut to size and zipped into the window space. I spent the winter in a popup in Virginia Beach KOA one year...

x2 with Dan's suggestions. I use gizmos and they also help with condensation. You can also look into mattress heaters for the cooler temp nights.

I have been using space blankets and binder clips for past 3 years. $6 each and keep it cool and dark all summer long.

IMHO, Reflectix isn't durable enough in wind.
