Its all down to personal preference really. My/our preferred option is a duvet/sheet for a number of reasons.
1. We have a fixed bed so the bed is always "made up"
2. We go away for a month (or more, lucky us) at a time, so its a lot easier to have a couple of sets of bedding and rotate them on the bed/through the wash. Duvet cover, sheet and a couple of pillow cases dont take up a lot of room. I wouldn't fancy using a sleeping bag for that long without washing it and there is always the issue of getting it dry after washing in time for next bedy-byes, especially if the weather isnt that good. (Unless you carry two sleeping bags of course)
3. If you get a bit warm under a duvet you can always stick a leg out to cool down. Not so easy to do with a sleeping bag.
There is always the option of using sleeping bag liners, but if you have to wash liners why not wash a duvet cover and sheet??
We have a two part duvet, half is 10 tog and the other half is about 4 so we can cover most eventualities temperature wise. (they can be poppered together to form a 14 tog or each used on its own)
No way would I consider sheets and blankets, far too old fashioned !!!
Its not the destination that matters.
It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, it’s in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with
