I can't answer it from a personal experience, but I would have thought other things come into consideration.

Single beds assume bedding has to be put away and made up daily, a sleeping bag must be easier to use as you take it out and get in it. Bedding with a duvet, means bottom sheet, tuck it in, and then get in...I would expect most duvets take up more space unless you use the pack-mate bags which are excellent for expelling the air, and you can get the ones that do not require the use of a vacuum. (We have a couple and I keep a single duvet in one - just in case it is too hot or one of us doesn't feel well and wishes to sleep on the single. Not used yet, but put into the vacuum bag when we go, just in case).

Apart from that, I recall seeing cotton liners for sleeping bags at the NEC - which should make washing easier.

Me I hate sleeping bags, I like to be able to put my feet outside the bedclothes...

My thoughts on it anyway, no doubt others may have personal experience.

Tog for Tog I guess sleeping bags which I have tried but end up feeling as though someone has tied me up in a knot. Like Carol, I hate being trust up like a chrysalis.

Sue,
We always use King Size sleeping bags and dont feel constrained as we set up as a double. Last time we felt we wanted something a bit better than what was on general sale and found some super bags for winter and summer use (guess not too far from you) at Camperlands in Northenden-might be worth a look to help your decision

Hi sue ignore these flash devils with their double beds
ease of use and warmth has to be sleeping bags - despite their drawbacks, you can get used to them.
if it's not that cold we tend to sleep under them with just from say knees down in the bag, rather than in them, that gives more freedom.
get the largest size you can - mummy bags without the baffle - imo that is!
that helps get a little more shuffling room!

"Ease of use" Not for some disable people it isn't, limited mobility can make it difficult to use a sleeping bag especially if it is not fully zipped. Much less demanding to use a quilt which I think is also more adaptable to a range of changing temperatures too.

I agree Peedee, I have to sleep with my left foot in a box to keep the bedclothes off of me, you cant do that with a sleeping bag zipped up, and I also need to be able to get up quickly, so definately a duvet

Ordinarily I might agree, but we are looking at a single bed - not easy to keep duvet on in these circs, and definitely not as easy to set up and put away double or single bed!
