Bedding ideas for 23SS foldout ends/Condensation Concerns

Hi, have an '09 23SS Roo. This is our second season and I bought a set of double sleeping bags-lightweight ones for our bedding last year. We always seem to end up too hot and then get condensation under the mattresses. I was thinking of just going with a regular fitted/flat sheet set and blanket if necessary. Any ideas? Looking for quick set up and low maintenance. We put reflectix under the mattresses, yet still get the condensation issue. Thinking something that will provide a bit of air circulation will ease this issue-any ideas? Thanks!

I just put regular fitted sheets on my bunk ends. They're a bit roomy, but work fine. Then we have various blankets and quilts to pick from, depending on the air temp.

I don't really seem to have much issue with condensation. It feels a bit dampish in the mornings, but nothing bothersome.

we use sheets and blankets and still get condensation under the mattress.
some Hybrids' mattresses have fabric bottoms and some have vinyl bottoms. from what i've read, the vinyl don't have the condensation issues the fabric ones do. they may have condensation but the vinyl hides it.
we also tried reflectix with some success.
we think that whatever is under needs to allow some air in between the mattress and the bunk platform.
we've been using an old wool blanket. it seems to work better than the reflectix.

We have same unit i use the memory foam bedding with light blanket or sheets.I might suggest that you open the top zippers on your bunk ends, The reason for this is that yourself and anyone in the camper sleeping emits moisture into the unit .There in your adding moisture into the camper and if you dont have any means of getting it out , condensation will build up around the top of the tents as well as the metal sheppard poles.So just unzip the tent sides and ends as to have a release area. Even do this when weather is cooler as well, you dont have to leave wide open just enough to be confortable sleeping.If you have vents in roof open them as well.I installed 2 Maxxi vents as to allow to be open even in heavy rains.This keeps the trailer really comfortable,I have a small occilating fan i use on occassion as well
it works well
